CORE 300’s Men’s discipleship training curriculum is like no other. Whereas typical Christian men’s curricula lasts for 6-8 weeks, and suffers attrition of 45-60%, Core 300 is 18 weeks long, but surprisingly, our average attrition is 85%!


The Warrior Launch Kit

“The problem is NOT that men are flakey or dispassionate about spiritual things, the problem is that their HEARTS and minds are not being ENGAGED in authentic, manly ways”                                                                                   – Art Hobba

Our system provides 3  sequential semesters of transformative biblical training that utilizes the modern science of multidimensional immersion including Video, writing, homework, reading, vital small group participative discussion, honorable transparency, personal and small group goal setting and projects.

“The quality and depth of Core 300’s men’s discipleship curriculum is the finest men’s material I have ever seen.”                                                                                                                      – Dr. Jack Hayford, Author, Founder, Kings University

Our Men’s Discipleship Curriculum is designed by Jack Hayfordprofessionals, and supports the development of students at Schools of Ministry, Seminaries, and Bible Colleges, as well as existing pastors seeking advanced degrees. Men’s ministry leaders, and local churches across all denominational segments have found it sound and challenging theologically, with intuitive and relevant application for men in the post modern era. Ultimately, it has proven to go beyond the head, piercing the heart of men, and delivering full-on transformation and engagement of each man “into the arena.” Every man has that secret quest inside them to be “that guy”–to serve this fallen planet with goodness, and the light, and the redemptive love of God expressed in the way only they can express through God’s unique design. For 99% of us, it is still locked up.

“I’ve searched and tried everything for 30 years. . .every book, and every men’s curriculum, to try to engage my men, but nothing worked. Then God led me to read the book Called to War and then we bought the 19 week Core 300 Warrior men’s discipleship training curriculum. And our men caught fire! Right now we have 50 men in the Priest course every week, and many are loving it even more than they loved the Warrior!”                                   – Pastor Randy Brooks, Marrietta, GA


Men and Leaders are Universal Worldwide

“Our church culture in Africa is corrupted by greed and the quest for power by men who strive for Titles of Pastor, Priest (Father), Bishop and Apostle more than they try serve their sheep like Jesus. Generally they seek to prevent our mostly literate public from even owning or reading a Bible, lest they find out what it really says about our Lord! When Core 300 came to me and my other pastor and bishop friends, we were AMAZED! Our hearts leapt to hear that Jesus washed feet and had a servants heart, and to the man, the spirit of Pride was broken. Now we carry this message into the bush of Uganda and Kenya and many thousands of pastors and priest from all faiths are coming to Christ and finding the freedom and fresh calling to become like Jesus.”

– Barrack Nyongesa, Director, Core 300 Africa

We offer your training college or your church three years or semesters of Men’s Discipleship Curriculum that patterns the three years of the 12 disciples as they walked with Jesus. And, like the twelve, the disciples learn to duplicate themselves through life-to-life with Jesus from 12 to 72, forming the leadership foundation of the first church.

The Warrior  is a 19-week men’s discipleship training “Bootcamp” experience that the guys just love! Following the example of Gideon, the student-warrior, led by a trained Squad Leader, courageously crushes all personal idols, and learns how to fight and win his spiritual battles in the Armor of God. His personal victory is realized as he merges into a band of brothers who have learned how to advance the Kingdom of God by locking shields of faith in mutual strength and protection.

Core 300’s 3-year Pathway

Process chart 2015

“The Core 300 men’s curriculum is effectively tapping in to what is needed to engage American men in powerful kingdom-focused ways in their families, churches, and communities. They use the biblical themes of the warrior Gideon to challenge us to “get into the arena” — first by building key interdependent community with other men, then freeing us from the bonds drag men down, and finally by “spurring us on to love and good deeds” in practical ways. The content is transforming.            –  Steve Adams, Christian Associates, Director of Strategic Partnerships

The Priest – continues the mens discipleship training, reaching beyond the man to those whom God has placed within arms’ reach: his marriage, his children (and grandchildren), his church, and his workplace. This 18-week men’s discipleship training course trains men together how to mobilize the Spirit-filled and equipped Warrior as an activist, servant leader, exemplified by our High Priest, Christ Jesus.

The King – is the pinnacle of our men’s discipleship training curricula, where the Priest servant-leader graduate learns the art and skills of mentoring and leading others, and learning their mission of growing into a leader of leaders. This Bible study provides the framework for God to move each disciple toward becoming the dream HE dreamed when he made him!


Starting in a mega-church teetering on collapse, God raised up a small group of emerging leaders who began calling men “Out of the Stands, and into the Arena,” and 140 men heeded the call. Inspired by the 300 in Judges 6, this man and Gideon and his 300 were the most courageous and successful fighting force in military history, Core 300 men’s discipleship became a three year, cutting edge men’s curricula deeply invested in biblical study and leadership principles.

Core 300’s Discipleship Training’s Fourfold Objective:

1)  A Call to men’s discipleship…Out of the Stands and Into the Arena” into a focused boot camp experience, following the journey of Gideon into a walk of complete and redemptive victory

2)  Risk to trust the man next to you and become a “Band of Brothers” and Warriors with a common enemy, and teach them to embrace openness as a lifestyle while they lock shields together in victory.

3) Equipping men for “all in” men’s discipleship in a close and safe community, contemporary spiritual warfare in the Armor of God, followed by world class instruction in servant leadership

4)  Deploy men into significant ministry (and their families) to others in a way that connects real human need with their gifting, their passion, and the practical presence of Jesus Christ

The Book “Called to War: Out of the Stands and into the Arena,” is a “must read for every man,” and quickly becoming known as “the best men’s book since “Wild at Heart.” It is also the textbook for the first year “Warrior” course.

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