Discipleship

At ALERT, we make disciples for Jesus Christ. Our commitment to your growth is about more than physical strength or mental readiness; it’s about every man’s need for a personal relationship with his Savior. We believe that when you get to a place where you fully depend on God every single day, your faith becomes unbelievably contagious, and when that happens, anything is possible.

Service

From the first century to the modern day, Christ commands each of His followers to be the servant of all. Being an ALERT man means putting your natural self-focus in check, and serving people in need until it becomes second nature. Because disaster relief is a key component of our training schedule, you’re not just making a difference today – you’re preparing for a lifetime of answering the call.
