Why Am I Here?

Two weeks ago, 100 students, parents, and TeenPact staff arrived in our nation’s Capital. Students came by planes and trains, short car rides and multi-day caravans.

We gathered for Back to DC, an event chock full… Read more »

TeenPact is Like a Deck of Cards

It was only last week that I drove away from TeenPact Survival Northwest. Survival was absolutely amazing, and I’m coming to realize that words don’t quite express the things you experience at TeenPact. As I was thinking over what happened at this event, a sort of story started to form in my mind. Maybe you’ll appreciate reading it. TeenPact is… Read more »

I entered this organization at thirteen, and now five years later, the time has come to enter a new stage of life. I honestly cannot even express how thankful I am… Read more »

A Vibrant Community

A TeenPact Judicial Student Story Last summer, I had the opportunity to attend Judicial, my first TeenPact Alumni Event. It was such a full week––spiritually, intellectually, and relationally. Throughout the program, we were all stretched in different ways, and it was incredible to see people excel as they stepped further and further out of their… Read more »

Undone in the Presence

I have never been able to say this truthfully until tonight. I am undone in the presence of Christ. The other two TeenPact classes I staffed left me changed because of things God did to me and in me. This class left me changed because of things I watched God do in others. I saw… Read more »

Over 17 years ago, I attended my first TeenPact State Class at the Florida Capitol. As a 12-year-old student, I was not of age for the Four Day Class so, with the help of my mom, I wrote a letter requesting a waiver to attend the class. A few weeks before the class, I broke… Read more »
