A Step-by-Step Pathway for Wholehearted Christians To Study, Connect, and Grow

Isn't There More To Life?

Many of us, whether successful or struggling, wonder: How can I have everything and still feel so empty?

When life's challenges hit, we question where God is and how He can help us find peace and purpose.

It's no surprise we get disillusioned when we see religion reduced to marketing hype and spiritual fakery. We long for a genuine connection with God.

We want to know God as He's revealed Himself, understand the Bible deeply, and experience the joy of following Jesus.

Without clear guidance and support, our faith can stall out. That's why I developed The Uncommon Pursuit Academy‚ÄĒto provide you with the tools and knowledge you need to grow your faith and live your life with God.

Drawing on over 20 years of ministry experience, including my time as a campus minister at Harvard, I've designed the Academy to help you:

  • Know God deeply
  • Understand the Bible
  • Connect with like-minded Christians
  • Love and serve others

Wherever you are on your journey, The Uncommon Pursuit community meets you where you are and guides you forward

It's not about doing more, but about honestly seeking transformation as we help each other build our lives on God's love.

Community Is Our Secret

By ourselves, it's hard to do what's good for us.

Whether it's eating healthier, working out, or even drawing closer to God, it's easy to give up. 

But when we're doing these activities with friends, it's a totally different experience!

I don't want you to be alone.

I want to give you all the support you need to thrive as a follower of Jesus. 

That's why registering for The Uncommon Pursuit Academy includes becoming a Community Partner.

As a Community Partner, you can:

  • Join weekly live Zoom calls
  • Share prayer requests
  • Ask unlimited questions in our private discussion area

Books are great, but they can't talk back to you.

Between the amazing content and the honest conversations, you'll look forward to logging in every day.

Hi, I'm Carson

  • M.Div., Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
  • D.Min., Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (anticipated graduation in May 2025)
  • 21 years of ministry experience
  • Editor or author of six books (True Reason,¬†StartBook,¬†Everyday Questions, 12 Steps to God, Together, The Gift of Advent)

I am both a life-long skeptic and a relentless idealist.

Most days, I feel that God absolutely loves me, and this fills me with joy to worship him and serve others.

At my lowest moments, I wrestle with persistent doubts and traumatic memories of spiritual abuse.

I'm grateful for both the highs and the lows, because they've taught me that I need to totally rely on God. In facing my own struggles, I've become tender and empathetic for others who struggle. 

I also yearn to know what's true, so I'm constantly studying. Whether that's in a formal academic program, like the M.Div. from Gordon-Conwell or the D.Min. I'm enrolled in at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, reading a book, or listening to a friend with an open heart, I'm always searching to understand how God is at work in our lives.

During my ten years in campus ministry, including seven years at Harvard College, I had the opportunity to support hundreds of students in their spiritual growth. When I worked at RZIM, I founded and developed an online community that reached hundreds of thousands of people seeking answers about Jesus. But in January 2021, I made the difficult decision to resign from this ministry in order to advocate for survivors of Ravi's abuse.

With the support of an incredible Board of Directors, we launched Uncommon Pursuit in November 2021.

We're all spending more time online. It's a space where it's sometimes safer to explore and ask questions than it is in person. Through this platform, I've had the honor of connecting with thousands of Christians worldwide, providing courses and books that support a deeper connection with God.

I love to hear the stories of Uncommon Pursuit's Community Partners - it brings me joy to see my friends living a more authentic, fulfilling life with God.

I hope you'll join us, too.
