The Arena

In response to the current culture, The Arena is a mobile app where men and women record daily actions of discipline in competition against one another. Forging discipline is normally a dull and difficult task, but The Arena transforms the process into an exciting game. Built on competition and social influence, the app taps into the powerful motivation that is only available through peer-to-peer competition.

         The Basics             

 

  1. Sign up with your friends or group

  2. Choose objective actions to track

  3. Select a point value for each action

  4. Record actions you complete each day

  5. Try to outscore a weekly opponent

Why it Works

The Arena is built around competition and social influence – two of the most powerful motivators, especially for young people. Building discipline is normally a dull chore, but The Arena transforms the process into an exciting game.

 

“This is an awful idea. It makes people do things they don’t want to do to become a better person” – Christopher, 13

 

The Arena also provides the support necessary for personal change to be real and lasting, tapping in the accountability and influence that is only possible with peer-to-peer competition. The game also creates a system of consistency and organization, prompting players to grow in awareness of their strengths and weaknesses, and providing clear data for them to plan, pursue, and measure progress.

Who It's For

The Arena is ideal for teens and young adults, many of whom are both highly competitive and desire greater discipline in their lives. It is also a great resource for youth ministers and college missionaries – connecting them to the daily lives of their disciples as they strive together to grow in discipline and holiness. 

Other groups that could see tremendous benefit from The Arena include:

       •     Missionary Group         •     Men’s Groups

       •     Youth Groups                 •     Families

       •     Parish Programs           •     Bible Studies

       •     Residence Life Programs

"It is not the critic who counts;

not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles,

or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena,

whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;

who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again,

because there is no effort without error and shortcoming;

but who does actually strive to do the deeds;

but who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions;

who spends himself in a worthy cause;

who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement,

and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly,

so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls

who neither know victory nor defeat."

- Theodore Roosevelt
