Art Hobba

Art Hobba is the Founder and President of Core 300, a California-registered 501c3 non-profit corporation, and Principle Based Leadership, a Kenya-based NGO Training, and Humanitarian organization. His calling was clarified by a vivid, life-changing dream in 1978 where Father-God invited him to follow Him as a “father to the fatherless.” Since that time he followed a zig-zag pathway that included both business and pastoral ministry–and ultimately to found Core 300 in 2010.

Mr. Hobba background includes several senior management roles, and strategic management consulting services where Art has been effective in raising the bar through implementing companywide cultural transformation.

Since 2017, his sole focus has been to introduce men and their family members to their Father in Heaven bringing Core 300’s 3-semesters of transformative training and Holistic solutions to the underserved in developing nations. His belief that men are the key to either great evil or great good has catalyzed some 42,000 men who have experienced the Warrior course. The Core 300 movement is expanding today by over 8,000 new graduates each year through a cohort of 200 indigenous certified Coordinators and 60 Kenyan Prison Chaplains.  Since 2019 the Kenyan management team has conducted 400 confidential Wives Surveys to measure their husbands’ behavioral changes since the completion of the Warrior course, the Warrirto and Priest, and all three courses. Survey results consistently show a 94% average “Improved” or “Much Improved” ratings for behavioral changes at home—including increases in fatherhood engagement, economic support, marriage enrichment, and the elimination of violence in the home.
