All throughout the episode, Charlie Brown and his friends consistently misunderstand Christmas. At one point, Charlie Brown looks over at his friend Linus… Read more »

Black Friday Sale: 2016 Edition!

“When I see the name TeenPact on a water bottle, frisbee, or guitar pick, it brings back memories of my entire TeenPact experience. A hoodie from my last state class, the latest color deck of cards just because, a sharpie that signed my bill into “law” at Congress. Having the TeenPact star logo around the… Read more »

Recap: TeenPact Endeavor

A few weeks ago, I was sitting on an airplane in the early hours of a Sunday morning. As people around me dozed, I found myself praying for the 41 young women who would be joining me the following day at Endeavor on Lake Oconee in Georgia. It was during that time that the Lord… Read more »

TeenPact Venture

In a culture that perpetuates adolescence, how do we as Christians navigate what it means to be a “Man”? No doubt this long-asked question is one of the great issues of our time. Yet, regardless of where you turn, society has a different idea what masculinity looks like. In no small way, it seems, our… Read more »
