The concept of "Kingdom Living" is not present in everyday society. A KINGDOM is any person, or people, governed by laws and belief. At it most basic level, we can see the structure of a kingdom in the family home. We are a team of kingdom-minded leaders, teaching life through the concept of kingdom only makes sense if our job is to breed kings (servant-leaders). The grooming of a king is of utmost importance when kingdom is the discussion at hand.
The purpose of AOK is to develop our nation’s most distinct leaders. We attract parents that believe in the biblical PURPOSE over the man’s life and want to see this actualized in their home. We are a purpose-driven company, with purpose-driven leaders, serving purpose-driven families. The purpose of a male is for him to fulfill his call in three primary areas of life; priest, protector, provider.
It is our fundamental truth that every male is a leader. So LEADERSHIP should be of utmost importance to every man. Our mentor, Dr. John Maxwell often says, “Everything rises and falls on leadership. Show me your leader and I’ll show you your future”. What he is saying is that leaders hold the power to dictate outcomes on the behalf of people. This is a fundamental truth that we often fail to honor. Here is a blatant truth about manhood and leadership: No one needs men that are good leaders more than the family household. History has shown that nations thrive when men of high moral character are in a seat of authority.
The area of SERVICE is what excites us the most. Service is the magic elixir to transformation in people. It is also where purpose is manifested. Service is the lifeblood of influence. Service is the byproduct of love. Service is actionable proof of faith and hope. Service for others is the only reason we are here. Our ability to help our scholars view themselves as servant-leaders is what makes AOK so significant.
For us, SUCCESS is simple. We realize that men are most successful, and fulfilled, when they actualize their purpose as a Priest, Protector, and Provider. We will be honest. Our work is not easy, but the reward of growing powerful young men is worth it. We are well aware that hard work without prosperity breeds resentment. We are also aware that everyone only does anything they do because they are seeking some form of self-gratification known as success.
