James 4:6 shares a familiar passage from Proverbs 3 – “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”  Do you feel that God is teaching you a lesson every time you open your mouth? I have had that feeling often this past week. As you know, we have just completed a banner year… Read more »

Why do we “love” TeenPact? What is it about TeenPact that fills our faces with smiles? Over the last few weeks, we’ve been asking the people who love TeenPact most – our students – to share why they love TeenPact at #sharetheteenpactlove. Here are some of the reasons TeenPacters shared:

Hey there! My name is Noah.

Hello. My name is Noah, and TeenPact is my life. You think I speak in jest, or maybe that I just really love this ministry? No. TeenPact is my life. I want to talk about what I’ve learned from this ministry over the last decade or so. I first met a TeenPact staffer when I… Read more »
