Are You Ready to Get Real?

March 16, 2017

Are you ready to get real? Who are you—really? What’s holding you back from becoming the man God created you to be?

Basic Training is the first of three life-changing phases that ALERT offers to young men to prepare them for the responsibilities and challenges that come with Godly manhood. In nine intensive weeks of “boot camp,” you will confront the unhealthy self-focus you were born with and be challenged to maintain a lifestyle of service to others in Christ’s Name.

Basic Training focuses on developing dependence on God, personal discipline, attention to details, endurance, leadership, teamwork, critical thinking, time management, and healthy spiritual disciplines such as daily Scripture reading and memorization. Training highlights include wilderness survival, rope systems, land navigation, response drills, and multi-day hiking.

The depth and scope of Basic training has been proven to deepen a man’s walk with the Lord, facilitate growth in his maturity, and develop in him the confidence to face significant life challenges. The concepts taught in this phase are foundational to the skills that will be introduced during Phase 2 of ALERT training.

ALERT Basic Training’s structure is similar to a military boot camp, and it’s designed to stretch and challenge you beyond your perceived limits.
