Praise be to the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle. He is my loving God and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield, in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples under me. - Psalm 144:1-2

We at Sword of the Spirit Christian Ministries believe first and foremost that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior. 

Sword of the Spirit Christian Ministries practices the team martial art of Evach Lahak. As our name implies we are a Christian organization which focus on outreach and fellowship. From a martial arts aspect, we are not a kendo or fencing group nor are we a LARP or medieval reenactment group. Although we share some things in common with these other arts or groups, what we do is unique. Sword of the Spirit Christian Ministries uses Evach Lahak as a tool for outreach and fellowship for a number of reasons.

One of these reasons is that Evach Lahak is a team martial art. It emphasizes teamwork and tactics as much as we do individual fighting skill. This gives all participants a better chance to interact and develop interpersonal relationships. The team aspect also allows new members to join and contribute almost immediately, thus solidifying their place in the group and providing an excellent opportunity for fellowship. For individuals who do not know God, Sword of the Spirit Christian Ministries offers members a fun chance to learn about God and interact with a solid Christian community.

Group membership is completely free and Sword of the Spirit Christian Ministries encourages everyone to bring their friends and come out and participate. Our leadership has plenty of extra equipment for new members or guests to borrow. Each day there is a required Evach Lahak class that includes instruction on how to fight and a Bible lesson.

  • Battle Dispatch for December 16, 2017 Nathaniel Kills the One-Armed KyleBeing the last man left on his team, Nathaniel called Singles in order to fight his remaining opponents one-on-one. Kyle stepped up to take on Nathaniel, who had shorter reach and less experience. However, despite his apparent disadvantages, Nathaniel fought intelligently and didn't let Kyle set the pace of the fight. Eventually, he was able to whittle Kyle down until he was left without arms. It was an impressive bit of swordplay from a student who is still relatively inexperienced.Olivia, Rebecca, & Kyle Form a HammerWhen Jeremy spent a round as captain, he split his team into two groups: an aggressive flanking squad (Kyle, Rebecca, and Olivia) and the rest ...
