If you were at our service on Sunday, you heard us talk about Fight Clubs. Here are some resources you can read, then just grab a couple friends and start fighting!
How to Start a Fight Club
Fight Clubs: a story
Have you seen this done at a Sr. High School level? I would think it would involve an adult monitor with 2 or 3 students. Or do you think there is more maturity required to commit to a Fight Club? I see my 17 year old son being bored with what is typically offered in “youth group” and wanting to, as he puts it, “be more real.” He’s keeps quiet in the larger group setting – thinking some of the other kids couldn’t handle it if he opened up about his struggles. Just wondering if you have an opinion on Sr. Highers and Fight Clubs and if it would look any different than what you describe.
Great question. Honestly, I don’t see why a monitor would be necessary. In fact, substantial fighting would be more likely to happen among teens if they are taught what an FC is and then left alone to do it.
It would be wise, however, for a youth leader to occasionally check in with the guys to see if the fighting is going well, to help them steer clear of legalism and license and to live in the gospel together.
I hope that helps.
