These groups begin with the members discussing the Word and end with the members applying the gospel and sharing life together. As learn the Bible together, grow in our understanding of the Gospel, and work to obey what we learn, we will inevitably enjoy God more, look more like Jesus, and be better equipped to fight sin and live life as God designed.

Is it a Bible study or an accountability group?
Both! Fight Clubs are relationships that help you learn/study the Bible, and give you people to help process what you’re learning and how to live it out. You’ll also ask each other intentional questions to push each member of the group to seek God and live a holy life.
Is the focus evangelistic or for discipleship?
It can be either! You can meet with new believers to help them learn how to study the Bible and live out their faith, or you can meet with more seasoned believers to encourage each other and continue growing.
Is this supposed to multiply or stay together?
It depends on the goal you set as a group! Some groups want to meet for a specific amount of time, and then take what they learn and share it with others. Some groups desire to develop deeper relationships over time. Just make sure everyone in your group knows the goal!
Who should be in my Fight Club?
Fight Clubs should be 3-4 people of the same gender. Ideally, these would be people you have an established a friendship with – maybe they’re someone in your Community Group, someone you serve with on Sundays, or just a friend! Having an established relationship with the people in your group will make it feel more natural to have conversations about your spiritual life, but if you don’t have someone like that in your life already, we’re happy to help you find a Fight Club to plug into!
Does everyone have to go to Redeemer?
Not necessarily. We believe this model is beneficial for all believers to grow in their faith and obedience to Jesus. We want to use it to grow the people in our church, but if you are close with someone who attends another church, go for it.
It is only for men?
Not at all! In fact, the Redeemer Women’s Ministry put together the “I Am Statements” session guides above, in the hopes that they will be a helpful tool for the women of Redeemer as they begin Fight Clubs.
Does it have to be people in my CG?
Your Community Group might be a great place to start as you look for people to be in a Fight Club, but it’s not the only option! Again, it depends on the goal of your group – to multiply or develop deeper relationships.
Should there be a leader/organizer?
While everyone is going to benefit from being in a Fight Club, it may be helpful to designate one person as the organizer of the group – the person who will make sure you meet together regularly, and who can help guide the conversations.
