Student Testimonials

“Every day at ALERT, I learn to depend on Christ more. I’ve learned there is always room to grow, that I don’t have all the answers, and most importantly, that it is my walk with Him that really matters.”

Kenjie S.  |  Unit 66

“Before I came to the ALERT program, my life was without direction and purpose. I would spend my time working dead-end jobs and playing video games, and occasionally participating in outdoor activities if invited. After going through Basic training, I saw a glimpse of what I could be if I wanted to change. Over my time at ALERT, I have seen God’s grace to me as my faith and reliance on Him grew. I can say for certain that ALERT has changed my life for the better in terms of leadership, discipline, physical strength, and so much more. I will forever be grateful to this program and the men in it.”

Joshua L.  |  Unit 64

“The unique tensions and challenges that I faced here forced me to rely on God and get out of my comfort zone. It taught me to behave with conviction, think with clarity, and speak with authority. ALERT gave me a valuable perspective about life, God, and people that I never had before.”

Len N.  |  Unit 61

"On Memorial Day, we give thanks for the blessings of freedom and peace and for the generations of Americans who have won them for us. We also pray for the same strength and moral reserve demonstrated by these veterans, as well as for the true and lasting peace found in a world where liberty and justice prevail."

Unit 68

Congratulations to the men of Unit 68 on their advancement out of Basic Training! The 32 men who finished Unit 68 have joined the brotherhood of all the men who have gone before them, and are now part of the ALERT Battalion. As a symbol of their advancement out of Basic Training, the men are issued the ALERT patch for their uniforms, and may additionally receive a promotion to the rank of Responder. They are now also able to wear the ALERT t-shirt and their unit t-shirt.

As the men head home for furlough, please join us in praying for their continued spiritual growth and discipline, and for rest and physical recovery after the rigors of Basic Training. We look forward to seeing them back on June 24 for the start of 2nd Phase.

If you were part of Unit 68 and would like to be tagged in the photo, please send us a direct message and we will tag you.
