One Step at a Time

This post was written by Riley Skeen, who served as a Traveling Intern for TeenPact during the 2017 State Class Season. This was me. A 9-year-old going to my first TeenPact One Day Class. Wrinkled shirt, clip-on tie, and a nervous smile. Adorable… I know…. Like many, I was so, so nervous as I approached the lectern to… Read more »

Value Their Liberty

TeenPact’s vision statement reads “TeenPact Leadership Schools seeks to inspire youth in their relationship with Christ and train them to understand the political process, value their liberty, defend the Christian faith, and engage the culture at a time in their lives when, typically, they do not care about such things.” Today is Veteran’s Day, a… Read more »

Flickering Light

  It’s not uncommon for lights to flicker. It’s an experience that, many times, goes completely unnoticed. You’ll be going about your business when all of a sudden, just for an instant, the light is gone. We hardly even notice this phenomenon until it’s over because our eyes are so accustomed to existing in the… Read more »

Imagine it is Christmas morning and you are gathered in the living room with your family all around.

We had early mornings and late nights, lots of D.C. METRO rides and hours and hours of training sessions, tours, and small group campaign exercises. We gathered for Back to DC, an event chock full… Read more »

Walk the Talk

An Elected Officials Update At National Convention this past year, I had the opportunity to share a message about forgiveness. Driving home from the event, I knew I needed to work on this in my own life and thought, “Hey, I know a lot about forgiveness. This should be easy.” False. I found forgiveness to be just as… Read more »

Inspiring and Equipping

Endeavor exists to inspire and equip young women to glorify and enjoy God. Over a year ago, when I was invited to step up as the Program Director for TeenPact’s Endeavor programs, I already knew that I loved the vision of Endeavor. The catechistic language was appealing, but, even more than that, such a vision… Read more »

Many of us have experienced life changing weeks at alumni events across the nation! And just think, we are right around the corner from the start of State Class… Read more »
