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 »

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 »

Inspiring the Next Generation

This year I was introduced to TeenPact for the first time. When I arrived at the New York State Capitol for my first Four Day Class, I really had no idea what to think. Would these be a bunch of strict people who only use thee’s and thou’s? Was I going to listen to stodgy lectures… 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 »

Don’t Follow Me.

It’s been a crazy few months for me, serving as a Traveling Intern with TeenPact, and getting to see the nation as part of the experience. I visited seventeen states, met hundreds of people and traveled thousands of miles. Numerous people have asked me what the best part of my season was. There’s so many… Read more »

Thursday – Digging In

Sunshine and cool temperatures brought students out of their dorms early this morning to grab donuts and enjoy deep conversation together. Lots of students now sit with friends during their time in God’s Word, and encourage one another by sharing stories of small groups and rendezvous from the day before. From the excitement of the week’s… Read more »

The End of the Season

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 »

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 »

Living a Life Worthy of the Gospel

Jesus never said that living a life worthy of the Gospel was easy––rather, He reminds us again and again in scripture to consider the cost of such discipleship. He has promised though that it is worth it  and that He will be the one to do all the work in our lives––we simply need to be willing… Read more »
