What If We Told You
That there was a rising warrior spirit amongst our youth who are choosing to step up and live an extraordinary life.
We are preparing tough leaders for tomorrow’s battles who are willing to stand on the front lines and fight to overcome life’s challenges with honor, courage, and commitment.
The Spartan Challenge
will start in exactly
95% of all incarcerated persons in the USA are men between the ages of 15 to 25 that come from a home without a father, and that have some degree of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD). This is a multigenerational issue that causes youth to lose the power to make good choices.
Most new mothers are between the ages of 15 and 36, and are the poorest people in America. The solution? Raise young mothers out of poverty and teach young men and women to be functional, successful and Christ-like fathers and mothers.
We are training youth who will take responsibility, restore order, and raise strong families. Good men take care of mothers to enable them to have the power of choice. Healthy and secure mothers raise healthy babies. Healthy babies grow up with an ability to make good decisions and break the chain of the prison system which enslaves almost 3 million people in the U.S. alone.
Teaching young leaders to understand their identity in Jesus, take responsibility for themselves, and others, and impact the environment around them.
We see a nation thrive with hope and a future. Good men and women who raise strong families excel in business, philanthropy, government, education, media, arts, and entertainment. We see a nation of warriors and ambassadors for our sovereignty and freedom.
We begin with a four-week prep camp before the start of the course. This camp is optional but highly encouraged. We meet each Saturday for 2-4 hours. The aim of the camp is to prepare those who plan to undertake the Spartan Challenge by preparing them physically with things such as running, rucking, pushups, situps, etc.
Then, the young men and women who enrolled go into a ten-week Spartan Challenge course which trains them in discipline, mental toughness, identity, and organizational structure.
The course will not “fix’ recruits, although it challenges and helps them break through many personal obstacles and rise up. It sets a foundation for God’s truth and provides a conducive leadership environment post-graduation.
Along the course, each recruit learns multiple skills, from self-defense, cooking, servicing their vehicles, and learning to provide first aid in emergencies. These skills will equip them for a lifetime.
Becoming a Spartan is not a decision that one makes lightly. It should not be mistaken for a local school club or summer youth camp. Becoming a Spartan is accepting the heavyweight of a leader’s lifetime responsibility.
Their tasks include training junior leaders and restoring neighborhoods and cities. These leaders will receive an internship providing employment or mentorship for personal and professional development and growth.
