What are GRASSROOTS Fight Clubs?
A Fight Club is a gathering of 2-4 people from a Gospel Community who encourage one another in the fight to keep the gospel the central reality of their lives as they live on mission in the world. It’s in these intimate spaces that we learn to be vulnerable, listen to the Spirit, and faithfully participate in God’s mission together.
Those in a Fight Club are committed to:
- Fight the good fight of faith (1 Tim 6:12)
- Fight the lure of temptation and sin (Heb 12:1-4)
- Fight the spiritual battle against the enemy (Eph 6:10-18)
- Fight to live into the gospel with intentionality (Php 1:27-29)
A Fight Club begins with 2-3 people and strives to gather regularly for at least 1½-2 hrs. It requires a commitment of 20-30 min, 4-5 days/week to read the Word and pray, 20-30 min/week to prayerfully process the Gospel Reflection Questions (Bookmark) and additional time to connect relationally with “people of peace” (Lk 10:1-12) and non-believing friends (Mt 11:19).
Practices of a Fight Club:
- Learning to be vulnerable as they mutually confess sins and release burdens to Jesus (gospel freedom)
- Learning to listen to the Spirit as they read and/or listen to Scripture [12-20 ch/wk] (gospel immersion)
- Learning to faithfully pray for, pursue, and love one another and their neighbors (gospel multiplication)
In order to be a part of a Fight Club, you must first be a vital part of a Gospel Community.
