What is TeenPact?
TeenPact is a dynamic, hands-on leadership school for Christian students. Our mission is to train youth to understand the political process, value their liberty, defend their Christian faith and engage the culture at a time in their lives when, typically, they do not care about such things.
The TeenPact experience is one of intentional growth, education and encouragement. We believe that God gives every young person a great spiritual capacity as well as a scriptural mandate to cultivate and use their talents – even before they are old enough to drive, work or vote! TeenPact trains these young people to embrace their call as the next generation of leaders by giving them tools, teaching and opportunities.
Each TeenPact program is marked by spiritual discipleship, student leadership, parental involvement and a commitment to excellence. Our loyal base of parent volunteers and student leaders keep the vision alive and growing as we continue to expand nationally. Founded in 1994 by Tim Echols, TeenPact currently offers classes in 39 states and counting.
“Changing lives to change the world” is more than a motto to us. It’s literally what we do every day.
Greetings from Richmond, Virginia.
The TeenPact 20th anniversary season starts in just a few days, and we have all been busy preparing for the classes to begin in Georgia, Delaware, Wisconsin, and Arizona – with many more to follow. The last two weeks many TeenPacters were gathered in Oklahoma for the final push, and I wanted to share some 2014 highlights from my perspective.
- 20 Interns and Program Directors were trained in all aspects of leading the State classes.
- 130 staff members joined us in Davis, Oklahoma for additional preparation, including visiting the Oklahoma State Capitol for a day of planning.
- 9 TeenPact employees are ready to assist you with any and all questions you may have about the program, housing, policies, etc. Call the National Office at any time.
- 40 State Coordinators, and their many team members are looking forward to greeting you at your State Capitol over the next 15 weeks. Their year-long efforts are coming together to minister to you!
- 5000 or more students will attend the Four Day and One Day classes and learning about the mission of TeenPact Leadership Schools in an engaging, hands-on environment.
- Above all, we will be under the protection of One Awesome God – allowing us the ability to worship Him in spirit and in truth each and every day of the season.
Please join us!
