What is Fight Club

Fight Club is a 10-week journey where men are required to complete weekly challenges within the context of community and accountability. A 3-strike rule applies to all challenges. These challenges change weekly and cover spiritual, relational, and physical assignments, along with Scripture memory and many opportunities to try something new, sometimes intimidating, sometimes just-for-fun.

As a precursor to any weekly assignments, men who join are asked to sign the Fight Club Creed and commit to living by the Fight Club Guidelines.

Why do I need Fight Club?

It’s no secret that the disappearance of the Man is a cultural epidemic, affecting our homes, schools, workplaces, churches, and communities. With increasing desperation, the Church is working to remedy this, but many of our churches, despite their best efforts, are still failing to reach men. That’s because many methods used by churches are missing these indispensable masculine ingredients: Purpose, Humility, Accountability, Honor, Strength, Patience, Commitment…

Why the name Fight Club?

You know your not supposed to talk about Fight Club, right? No, we don’t either. We challenge you to DO. Fight Club will ask you to DO stuff, not just talk about it.

How did Fight Club get Started?

Pastor Jim Brown from Grace Community Church (Goshen, IN) started a men’s program, that was more. It was more than a casual conversation. He was tired of the absence of The Man in the home, the family, the community. It was designed to say, “not on my watch”, and I will not be “that guy”.

Who is Fight Club For?

Fight Club is for any man over 18 wanting to be the man they know they can to be; the man God made them to be.

Do I need Facebook to participate?

NOPE! No more Facebook! We know have a FIGHT CLUB APP! It is specific to our Charter (FC414.club). It is used only by members of Fight Club, so it is closed off to the public.
