The textbook for all three years of training is Called to War, by Art Hobba. It is the field manual for winning the spiritual war.
"Art Hobba understands that the authentic life is often a spiritual battle. The insights and counsel he provides in Called to War will help everyone who is committed to follow Jesus Christ." Dr. Paul Cedar, Chairman, Mission America Coalition
"Called to War is a critical book for men in our time...a 'War Manual' that teaches men how to step-by-step stop playing defense and to begin playing offense against the gates of Hell in every area of our lives." Frank Pastore, Christian Radio Talk Show Host and Former Professional Baseball Player
The Core 300 series consists of 3 distinct studies:
Book 1 - The Warrior: Out of the Stands...into the Arena! (Now available in Spanish)
Book 2 - The Battle-Priest: Bowed in Surrender...Swept up into Victory!
Book 3 - The Shepherd-King: Bound in Service...Crowned into Dominion! (Available in 2013)
Core 300 is designed for the "deep" end of your church's discipleship ministry. It requires commitment and effort, but is very rewarding. The best way to get started is to order the Launch Kit to see what a thorough job of preparation has been done to save you time and effortlessly get you underway.
Men's Fraternity, originally developed by Dr. Robert Lewis, has now grown to become the Authentic Manhood movement. The goal is to lead men to live the life of truth, passion, and purpose they were created to live.
Our model for authentic manhood is Jesus Christ and the 33 years He lived on earth. His life gives us a clear vision of the manhood God calls us to embrace.
Authentic Manhood curriculum provides timeless and practical insights on how we can live to be the men God intended for us to be. We want to do more than just offer a good curriculum. We want to fuel a worldwide movement of men who are committed to follow the courageous footsteps of Jesus into authentic manhood; men who will reject passivity, accept responsibility, lead courageously, and invest eternally.
Authentic Manhood offers two curriculum pathways to help guide men on their journey:
MEN'S FRATERNITY CLASSIC
Men's Fraternity Classic is a series of three studies beginning with The Quest for Authentic Manhood (24 sessions), followed by Winning at Work and Home (16 sessions), and concluding with The Great Adventure (20 sessions). More than just a rally or a Bible study, Men's Fraternity provides men with an encouraging process that teaches them how to live lives of authentic manhood as modeled by Jesus Christ and directed by the Word of God.
Men's Fraternity was designed to help men come together and strengthen each other through weekly sessions that combine biblical teaching and small group interaction.
These time-tested resources have been used all over the world to equip men to make their pursuit of noble manhood a lifelong priority. Church leaders and lay members are using the series to energize the men of their church and to connect with men in the community. Many men also use the series in their own personal pursuit of authentic manhood.
Men's Fraternity was created by Robert Lewis, pastor-at-large of Fellowship Bible Church in Little Rock, Arkansas and author of Raising a Modern Day Knight. It began in 1990 with 30 participants as Robert strived to connect with and challenge the men of his church. Over the years it has developed into a series of studies designed to engage the heart as well as the mind, stripping away the myths of manhood, and focusing on how each individual can be transformed into a true man of God. Now, more than 25,000 groups of men attend a weekly Men's Fraternity meeting globally.
The 33 Series took the original Men's Fraternity curriculum by Robert Lewis, and updated the content. The presentation is led by a team of ethnically and generationally diverse men. Each session includes teaching, video clips, and special guests to deliver the content in an exciting manner. The principles taught in the original 3 Men's Fraternity studies are now organized in 6 volumes of 6 session each. Two of these volumes are ready today. When completed, volumes will include topics on a man's wounds, traps, parenting, marriage, and career.
33 is an experience designed for both individuals and groups. Each man will need his own copy of the 33 Training Guide in order to enjoy the complete experience.
The 33 Kits include 6 sessions recorded on a DVD, one Training Guide, and helpful steps to get started.

If your heart beats for one-on-one discipleship the way the apostle Paul trained Timothy, then Operation Timothy (OT) is for you!
We know so many outstanding Christian leaders who received their training for life from another man and OT.
Rooted in the Navigators way of discipling men with the "2:7 Series", OT has been refined and developed by Christian Business Men's Connection (CBMC) over the years. The most recent edition was released in 2008 and is made up of three workbooks: Life Questions, Life Foundations, and Life Perspectives.
Your assignment as a Paul is to serve as a facilitator as you move your Timothy through each workbook at his own pace. There is no magic formula. This is purely life-on-life discipleship with a tool (OT) to help.
