The Xtreme Character Challenge: a milestone in your life! 72 hours of adventure, challenge and inspiration (Thursday night through Sunday afternoon). Multiple teams of eight to ten men (21 and over) band together to face the rugged terrain in special locations to measure ourselves and each other. Men embark on a life-changing journey, surrounded by stunning scenery, seeking the boundaries of their abilities and trying to overcome the deep abyss between head and heart. Areas like the Suisse Alps, Norwegian fjords, Scottish highlands and here in the Canada, Continental Divide (Alberta), Ouachita Mountains (Arkansas), Wichita Mountains (Oklahoma), Sierra Nevada Mountains (California) and Blue Ridge Mounatins (North Carolina) are the backdrop for men facing their fears, friends becoming brothers, and God revealing Himself intimately to wild hearts.
You will invest both time and money and it will be one of the best investments you can make for your life. You, your family and your community will reap the benefits. The Character Challenge is not just a weekend, it is a journey where you are mentally and physically challenged. If you decide to accept the challenge, we trust that you make this decision wholeheartedly. You will not have a private hot shower at your disposal. There are no showers. No running water. No bunk beds and cozy lodge. This mental and physical journey that is unparalleled will be a milestone in your life.
The XCC is viewed as one endless day. During the XCC men turn over their watches, phones, wallets and car keys. Only the items on the packing list provided are allowed. No extra food. No cigarettes. No alcohol. Ten teams of eight to ten men journey together on one route. The teams walk considerable distances carrying their backpacks with their equipment. Along the route the spiritual leaders of 4M speak short messages, often followed by a practical assignment to build on the Biblical lesson. Throughout the XCC, the men receive some twenty 10-minute talks that center around a Biblical character, such as Moses, Joshua, David, and, of course - Jesus. The aim of the XCC is to lead men to the highest place on earth, the foot of cross, in a way they have never experienced before.
The model of the XCC is cutting edge. Character starts at the borders of the unknown. Men are pushed further, deeper, and harder than they may have ever experienced before. Fatigue, cold, hunger, thirst and physical exhaustion are emotions that men can expect, but behind every challenge lies a certain purpose for character-building and for an incarnation of Biblical truth.
If you think you can't. that is precisely the reason to come. If you think you don't need it, you are in great need...Are you up for the challenge?
