how we bring unity in diversity
Our Heart for UNCC and other colleges is to bring Unity in Diversity through coaching resources, the creative arts, concerts, and through community outreach. We understand the importance of college students finding their purpose and the best way for them to do so is through unplugging them from negative influences of society and plugging them into their ultimate source which is God. Below is a breakdown of how we bring Unity in Diversity
All of us have a purpose but many of us have a hard time discovering what that purpose is. All we need is that extra push or coaching to help us discover it. Founder Coach Josh is a certified life coach that aims to connect people to God and to their God-given purpose and has developed tools and resources to help UNCC Students discover their purpose.
The universal language of mankind are the arts. UNPLUGGED U. endeavors to bridge the many forms of the arts on UNCC campus (drawing, painting, dance, spoken word, music etc) and use these art forms to encourage people to UNPLUG from their negative influences and discover and be inspired to walk in their own purpose.
UNPLUGGED U. Endeavors to provide an alternative to the social life by putting on high energy clean events to both celebrate UNCC talent as well as bring in other talents. Concerts are great ways to bring unity as well as celebrate common interest.
There is a powerful quote that says "You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you" UNPLUGGED U. strives to rally liked minded students to serve their local communities through local partnership like Habitat For Humanity and others letting them see the importance of serving others.
UNPLUGGED U. is a Christian organization that anchors itself on the teaching of Jesus who through his life and resurrection brought Unity within Diversity. Our goal is to connect UNCC students through non threatening means to the only source that will help them UNPLUG from sex, drugs and low self esteem and help them thrive in their purpose and that source is Christ. With that being said UNPLUGGED U. is open to all and welcomes everyone and endeavors to show you Christ through our lives more so through our lips.
