1 Peter 3:15 NIV
But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,
God has tasked us with a burden to rectify. There have been stumbling blocks along the way but we have overcome them and still continue to do so. We are going nationwide to provide a solution to a problem. There is a need in the martial arts ministries world for a biblically centered and structured discipleship training. There are a lot of organizations out there that just want to verify rank and be an organization for fellowship. Some even claim to be Christian but cannot answer to new members on how to achieve the organization's mission statement. We're NOT one of them.
Too often, instructors feel God tugging on their heart to start a ministry but they have no idea where to start. Martial arts comes easy but teaching the bible always seems to prove difficult for them, often leaving them to question the decision or leaving the ministry all together. Their first step is to find a group of Christian martial artists for encouragement, later to find that there is no means to do what the instructor was called to do which is to make disciples for Christ.
No more. No more does this have to be the case. Defenders of the Faith Martial Arts Ministry is ready to stand in the gap for you. We have put together a Defenders Discipleship Training Program using the Warriors handbooks for students. Each lesson feeds into the other in a logical manner, just as the bible does. Each lesson in the handbooks can be used as a class devotion. Students receive rewards throughout the system by developing Godly behavior. Each student can go through the program and develop their faith at their own pace. It grows the kids, parents, and even the instructors. Those that are unable to participate in the martial arts but still want to help in the ministry are able to do so. There is no church doctrine, only God's doctrine.
The hard part of running a martial arts ministry has been done for you, leaving you to focus on what you already know how to do, teach martial arts, your system, your way. This is not just a fellowship of encouragement. This is a put you Gi on and go make disciples on the mat ministry by following the pattern laid down by Jesus.
Your burden for teaching discipleship is our burden and we're here to help. Contact us today and we'll tell you how to get your hands on this program to get you up and running as soon as possible. Are you an existing ministry? We can help you make the transition as quickly as possible.
