A men’s program called “Fight Club” at the Grace Brethren church in Goshen, Indiana (Jim Brown, pastor) is currently featured in a local magazine. Here is an excerpt–to read the entire article, click here.
So what exactly is Fight Club? It’s a new offering for men at Grace Community Church in Goshen. It is a 12-week course where men come together in small groups to learn and grow together, keeping one another accountable along the way.
“Fight Club was born out of a desire to see men come alive,” explained Jim Brown, pastor of Grace and creator of Fight Club. “It has been brewing in our hearts for the last 10 years. I have personally had a desire to reach out to men. I knew that men needed a forum and discipleship method. After prayer and doing what we’ve been doing for a while, we finally developed the Fight Club discipleship journey.”
To kick-off the first Fight Club earlier this year, Jim made a simple announcement that a new offering for men was going to be available. Those interested were to meet at the church at midnight. That first night, nearly 400 men showed up. “It has been electric what has happened,” Jim said.
