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?
Besides studying the Bible together, 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 Fee (optional but highly appreciated)
There is an annual renewal fee option for our charters. If you renew your charter, you receive an entirely new set of materials. We are continually developing new content, so you would get the latest set of devotionals when you renew along with new wristbands and cards if you purchased a charter that included those.
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 to use, but it also helps us reach men, families, and communities around the world. Your support is more significant than us all!
If you don’t renew your charter but your active, you can remain an Uncommen charter.

Charter Spotlight – San Jose, CA
I first learn about the Uncommen through an app when I was searching for Men’s Devotional Material for me to use daily and from there what really caught my attention is the challenges specifically the challenge about putting gas in wive car, opening the door for her and taking your son or daughter for an ice cream.
