Staff Training Begins

Staff Training 2018 has begun! Staff arrived from all across the country, and TeenPact buzzwords were falling like the East Texas rainstorm that hung over the camp in Tyler, Texas today. Staff Training has become a cornerstone event for TeenPact since its inception seven years ago, and on Wednesday, over 170 staff members came together for the… Read more »

Stay Salty

If you’re like me, you probably heard at least one sermon about “salt and light” growing up. And if you’re like me, you probably don’t recall the “salt” part being addressed nearly as much as the “light”. Around nine months ago, I noticed that while I could tell you all about being “the light of… Read more »

Show Me

Since last October God has blessed me with a job as a barista at Starbucks. I love my job because the work environment allows me to be creative. I enjoy getting to know (most of) the regular customers that come in, and I really like working with and getting to know my co-workers. Recently my… Read more »

Through a Lens

  Every day, Alan traveled with his father down to the southern coast a few miles outside the town of Dundee.  His family was entrusted with the task of caring for an old lighthouse that stood out on the rocky coast of Scotland.  There, his father taught Alan how to maintain the equipment, refuel the… Read more »

Irrefutable Love

As a Christian in this culture, it is easy to become lukewarm or even doubtful of our faith. Our school system teaches an absence of God and we are faced with constant distractions.

Named after a brave Army medic who had given his life defending the outpost, Restrepo was considered one of the most dangerous outposts in the entire country. The soldiers stationed there… Read more »

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 »

Share Hope This Christmas Season

Imagine it is Christmas morning and you are gathered in the living room with your family all around. The smell of the homemade breakfast fills the air, the stockings, filled with treats, are hung on the mantle, the Christmas tree is surrounded by presents, and you are all sitting down with your favorite hot drink… Read more »
