History, Vision, and Mission


By Tim Echols, Founder

Little did I know that God would use an early morning prayer meeting to give me my next assignment way back in the Spring of 1993. There I was, for a weekly prayer meeting at the State Capitol in Georgia. As we said “Amen” after a lengthy time of intercession, I shared that I believed God wanted me to bring young people to the Capitol to learn more about the political process. The others agreed wholeheartedly and suggested the name TeenPact.

The very first class had just 18 students. We brought back outstanding students to “staff” each of the following classes.¬†TeenPact was an instant hit. The ministry grew to South Carolina in 1995 and we officially incorporated in 1996.

The rest is history.
