Welcome To Core 300
Core 300 is a global, Spirit-led non-profit that reveals a man’s true identity through a unique leadership and discipleship training process that transforms the lives of men, their families, and communities.
About 8 out of 10 men in the world today live in tribal cultures which skew masculine roles towards pride, violence, and misogyny. Fatherlessness is often pandemic as well, leaving lifelong father-wounds in their wake only to be revisited upon the next generation. Regretfully, most of the Western attempts to sustainably engage these men as followers of Jesus are short-term–or it fails completely.
Each man begins his awakening by enlisting in The Warrior course. There they learn the ancient story of Gideon–an isolated, poor tribal farmer. He toiled–like so many men today–in an occupation in which he was failing. As a husband, and father, he could not protect his family from fierce Sand-Pirates–Bedouin tent-dwellers–who ravaged sedentary tribes throughout the Middle East in 11th Century BC. Like locusts, they would time their attack to steal hard-earned harvests and livestock, year after year.
As a million Midianites made camp a mile from the borders of the tribe of Manasseh, Gideon’s village was braced for an 8th consecutive year of looting. Gideon was alone, hiding in the winepress, sifting the final gleanings of his wheat harvest. Unseen, a tall stranger waited in the shadow under an oak tree in Ophrah, leaning on his staff, watching Gideon’s bent over, back-breaking work. From the shadows he called out to Gideon, hailing him as a “Mighty Warrior!”
And they talked together, the strangers’ words of hope and courage flowed from his mouth into Gideon’s being. He could feel them resonating deep in his chest as each word was translated into divine courage–and a new faith-filled his heart. Gideon believed. He knew he would offer his right arm–and his life to this Being who had invited him into a battle to destroy every Midiantite on Earth. “We together, my son, will utterly destroy them!”
Gideon sealed the deal with a reckless sacrifice, and suddenly, just as this being of power accepted it, he was transfigured before Gideon’s eyes into the awful brilliant person of Jahweh–the Lord God Almighty!
After completing the 12-week course, the graduate will move into The Priest course, and finally, they will complete The King course–and exit a leader-maker, empowered into his unique divine purpose like Jesus!
Hundreds of confidential Wives’ Surveys indicate that the outcome shared by over 42,000 men who have graduated from our courses, worldwide, has been a dramatic spiritual and emotional transformation. It begins like Gideon, with a courageous partnership with Father-God, and transcends throughout his masculine roles as husband, father, worker, and citizen.
Our African Expansion: In October of 2012 we were invited to lead a 3-day Christian Leaders conference in Bungoma Kenya. Arriving the following August, we saw an unexpected, miraculous change came upon all 610 men who attended. Since then, and thanks to our generous donors, we have seen God transform 32,000 leaders in Kenyan and Uganda. And survey data shows that this profound change permeates their family, economy, and their community of faith.
”Current growth projections indicate that, if we continue on our expanding path of training and Holistic ministries with government executives, prisoners and prison employees, and Christian leaders, within 10-15 years the Core 300 momentum among leaders, their families, and followers will socially, economically, and spiritually transform the entire culture of Kenya”

“From before the times of antiquity, men of virtue have been awakened and inspired to drive back invasive Darkness through God’s Spirit as courage, love, and goodness takes back the ground of Evil. NOW is such a time again!”
– Art Hobba, Founder and President, Core 300

“Our primary crisis in Kenya is the ever-increasing social disintegration of the family. It has reached a critical boiling point due to the abandonment of boys and teenage males of their schools, and the abandonment of their families by their fathers. 7 out of 10 Kenyan families are now led by a single mother.”
— Saphia Awil, JD, Chief Officer Gender and Culture, Bungoma
