We Are Uncommon
Uncommon is a discipleship program for collegiate men and women in the Capital Region, as well as Upstate NY. Uncommon is a vital part of the College Ministry of Redeemer Church. Our mission is making Jesus the center of your college experience, character, and career.
God has called us to extend His Kingdom. He has given each of us unique gifts and our own sphere of influence, which we must utilize to point others towards His truth, love, and power. Our vision: My whole life for His whole Kingdom!
At Uncommon, we value people who are passionate about Jesus Christ and dedicated to making Him known. Uncommon is designed to develop lifelong ministerial skills by helping you navigate your college, character and career experiences, through the lens of The Gospel.
Instilled in all Uncommon Interns is a deep rooted commitment to community, excellence, innovation, open communication, learning, and servant leadership, to positively impact Redeemer Church, Uncommon, Encounter, Local Colleges and Universities, and the Capital Region/Upstate NY.
Jesus said, "seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” (Matthew 6:33)
Our goal is to desire God, know God and serve His purposes in this generation (Acts 13:22 & 26). Uncommon equips young adults to do so by laying a sound doctrinal, apologetic and Christian Worldview foundation, in which they can then engage with the world around them, proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ, which is the hope of mankind. In situ, we train today’s young adults to be Kingdom leaders of tomorrow by embracing the ideal that “Ministry” and “Missions” are not vocations but the call of every believer.
