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:

How did Fight Club get Started?

Pastor Jim Brown from Grace Community Church (Goshen, IN) started a men’s Bible Study, 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. He is all about, “don’t be that guy”. Here in Indianapolis, we are forever grateful for his commitment to see guys be better. Fight Club is a franchised ministry that is self-guided, but uniform across all Fight Club chapters. Fight Club Indy, (Grace Church, Noblesville) has not partnered with Grace Community Church in Goshen; rather, we are a chapter of the Fight Club ministry, following it’s guidelines operated independently.

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?

Facebook Groups is how we communicate to the entire group. It is essential, but not required. If you have a problem with Facebook, don’t worry we all do. But the specific “Groups” app is different. It limits your Facebook to view JUST the group. So no news feed, and aunt gerry asking to be your friend.
Talk to your squad leader, or your 20 something in your family, and they can help you set it up appropriately.

How do I get the Facebook Groups app?

Download app for android or apple

Sign up for an account. If it requires you to add the Facebook app to your device, go ahead, and once you are in the “groups” app, you can remove the Facebook app if desired.

Where do we meet?

Oakbrook Valley – Russiaville, Indiana for the Large Group Gatherings.

At your regional church hub for optional weekly meetings.

How often do we meet?

There are 3 large group gatherings per chapter.

KO – Kick off (1st)

Midway (2nd)

Graduation (3rd)

What if I can't make it to the large group gatherings?

Why can’t you? The KO is set at 11pm so that you have no excuses. Now, maybe you are traveling, or a emergency services employee that has a firm night schedule. If that is the case, you can still participate, just sign up, and let us know.

What is KO?

Kickoff – The launch of the Chapter. The Chapter is 10 weeks long

Can I talk about it?

Yes, of course…You just don’t want to give away any of the good stuff for people that haven’t gone through yet.

How much does it cost?

Fight Club is free to all first time Coremen (attendees). You will be required to listen to or buy a book, and you have the option of buying a t-shirt.

What if I can't do the physical exercises?

Don’t worry, we won’t embarrass you. Now, if you can’t do it because you are not cleared by your Medical DR. then you need to let us know ASAP.

What is a strike?

You will learn more about this at KO.

Guys that actually have an excuse not to show up a midnight for launch
