THE WARRIOR is a 19 week intensive Men’s “Boot Camp’ that meets at the church or in small groups to provide Spiritual Warfare training for the Christian man. As the first in the series of Core 300 men’s discipleship curriculum it provides spiritual warfare training in a bootcamp, military, “Band of Brothers” context. It trains a man to be aware of spiritual warfare around and within him, and then how to win his own spiritual battles against the world system, his own carnal nature and the evil forces of darkness.

This 19-week semester is the pre-requisite to The Priest Course which operationalizes the lifestyle of the victorious man of God as a servant leader. The spiritual warfare training builds a man’s faith, equips him in the Armor of God, and forges lifelong relationships with other men at his table or small group.

Men bond as they journey through a figurative military “boot camp” experience. Using an historically accurate verse-by-verse drill-down into the life of Gideon, you will examine three key factors common to men:

  • Gideon was Alone

  • Gideon was Hiding

  • Gideon felt Disqualified

Then we examine his calling, his Medallion1worship, his courage, his leadership and his victory in a way that is uniquely contemporary for the 21st century man. The sessions culminate with a compelling exposition on the Armor of God in Ephesians 6, and the dimensions and strategies of a man’s spiritual battles. The 19-week series concludes with a final military-style ceremony, where each man is conveyed the Core 300 Armor of God Coin.

Distinctives The Core 300 Warrior course design includes several unique distinctives not found in other men’s Christian study materials:

1. We call men out into the arena. . provides.spiritual warfare training, and then build men as leaders – our Founder has spent decades studying and training corporate executives and military officers in leadership development. As the author of “Principle Based Leadership,” Stage 6 Leadership, and “Called to War,” Art Hobba has molded his theological training into systems that can train, multiply, and release leadership in your church.

2. Core 300 develops experienced teachers in your church. We do not sell plug and play DVD’s, but use online streamed videos to help prepare a novice/untried teacher to present, live to their class or small group. our Core 300 Small Group Training System is a great place to begin to develop seasoned leaders of men and to build up your bench for the future. Email us for more info.

3. Core 300 is lovingly exclusive. Like an Army recruit, men must sign on, counting the cost, and be accountable to one another in their squad, and the Squad supports one another in this process. We recommend between 2-3 absences for each Warrior-student with the requirement that they make up the session via our Core 300 streaming library provided for each session. This is made clear in the beginning of the course before sign-up because at any given time, this course is not for every man in your church at their time in life.

4. Deployment – many Bible based studies miss the point of the Gospel. . . DEPLOYMENT! What value is there if a soldier finished Boot Camp only to be paraded around in his new uniform?  Core 300  has forged alliances with national ministries to help deploy men in their own community sphere.

There are three years of men’s discipleship training in the Core 300 curriculum. The Warrior, The Priest and The King, with all containing 19-20 weeks of interactive study. These are designed as ideal for both a large men’s ministries program and individual men’s small groups.

Our Founder, Art Hobba’s highly popular men’s book Called to War: Out of the Stands…Into the Arena, is the text book for year one.

“We just launched the Core 300 movement here at UCLA. When you have college students telling you (that have not yet attended) that they have heard from other students how good the meetings have been speaks volumes – students are talking! Our Bible Study attendance has doubled from last year.” – Rev. Mike Buchanan, Athletes In Action SoCal Regional Director

“I highly recommend Core 300 to assist you and your church in implementing this incredibly motivating training for men to “Rise-Up!” Your church will never be the same”  – Larry Carignan, Elder, Calvary Community Church
