ARKA Online

We have 15+ online squads led by experienced group leaders. This is available for Men that do not have access to our in-person circles. If you want to start a new squad in your city and lead it yourself, join one of our online groups to build the skills to lead and change lives in your community.

What is the commitment?

We want men who are committed.

Your squad will meet every week for 2-3 hours.

We are not a casual, drop-in group. The transformative power of our squads is grounded in the ongoing, weekly commitment of each and every member. Men who cannot regularly attend meetings will be asked to leave. We have a culture of accountability, discipline, and integrity that brings out the King.

Membership dues are $100/month (+tax).

Men value what they pay for. In this community, you get to sit with men who are truly invested in making positive changes in their lives. Our men get results.

Why Arka?

Our brotherhood has grown organically, from a single squad in 2015, to 48 today. 

Each squad is led by a captain who has personally experienced the powerful personal growth that is achievable through commitment to our weekly, in-person or online men’s circles and 14-point code. 

Each captain chooses to lead because of the transformational results he’s experienced in his own life and witnessed in the lives of the men around him. 

Each leader is mentored by fellow squad captains, veteran captains and our founder, Phil T. Mistlberger. 

We are a community. We are a network. We are brothers. We all have each other’s backs.

If there’s no squad where you live, join an online squad and build the skills to lead and change lives in your community.
