1. What is a charter?
A charter is a small group of men who meet together on a consistent basis with the intention of growing together and being the husband, dad, and leader they were always meant to be. Group size varies, and we have charters that meet all over. They meet in homes, restaurants, churches, garages, parks etc.
2. How do I run a charter?
Invite men to join your weekly gathering and build a community within your group. Study together, pray together, and do life with one another. The charter leader sets a lot of the smaller details like meeting times, locations, duration and the like. Ultimately, do what’s best for your group and lead them well.
3. How do we use the Uncommen materials?
The Uncommen devotionals are explicitly designed to be used for our charters. They include scripture references, questions for discussion, and challenges for accountability. The topics are hard-hitting and relevant for men of all walks of life and focus on being a Husband, Dad or a Leader.
4. How do I start my own charter?
Starting your own charter is simple. We offer several different charter packages to fit different needs and you can pick the Charter Package that best suits your budget. Our Virtual Package is catered for overseas charters as it’s all digital. The Jack Pack and the Starter Pack both contain wristbands and invite cards to help you inviting in men to join your charter.
After purchasing a package, you’ll get an email for a background check (we cover that cost). Once that is completed by you and you’ve been found to be AWESOME, we’ll mail your printed materials and email your electronic materials (devotionals and leadership materials). These tools will help aid you in leading these men to be the husband, dad, and leader they were always meant to be.
5. Annual Renewal
There is an annual renewal fee for our charters and when you do renew you receive an entirely new set of materials. We are continually developing new content, so you would get the latest set of devotionals, wristbands, new leadership materials, access to exclusive products and discounts and more when you renew your charter.
One of the most important things to keep in mind when buying a charter or renewing a charter is you are financially supporting Uncommen. This helps us to develop new materials, but it also helps us reach men, families, and communities around the world. Your support is more significant than you may realize!

Charter Leader: Charles Kirk
My name is Charles Kirk Jr, I’m 29 years old, and a father of 3 beautiful kids. I work full-time at the Charlotte Douglas Airport as an Operations Manager for American Airlines, and I’m also in the Military Part-time. I have my BBA-with a specialization in Operations Management and starting next spring, I will begin the journey to obtain my master’s in organizational leadership. I’ve been deployed overseas with my Brigade for about 6 months and due to the COVID-19 it could be for another 4 to 6 months.
I’ve always been passionate about expanding my knowledge and becoming the best father and leader. Growing up with an absent father and very few mentors, I had to learn most of the knowledge on becoming a father and leading my peers through books and research.
Uncommen spoke to my heart one day after completing the “Uncommen Redefine Leadership” bible plan on my bible app. I’ve completed over 75 bible plans in the last year in which many of the topics were structured around leadership. With all the insight I’ve gained, I realized there is no greater example of a leader than Jesus Christ. Since then, I’ve been on a never-ending journey to continue enhancing my knowledge and positively influencing my community.
Uncommen displays strength in its name, and provides guidance for Dads, Leaders, and Husbands. I lead by example for my brigade by having us gather five days out of the week in prayer, and workouts. I exchange knowledge I’ve retained for the day from Uncommen, my personal bible, and the “365 day devotional for men” by P.K Kent. I value the opportunities in positively impacting others on their journey.
