With Biblical masculinity under attack in today’s culture, TeenPact Venture is a week for guys to explore what it takes to be a man of character in a society plagued with mediocrity. Introduced for the first time in 2011, the event seeks to train young men to be unshakable leaders characterized by their integrity and wisdom.
TeenPact Venture gives young men direct training to equip them to be skilled leaders in a world searching for wise men of character. During the week students have the opportunity to learn valuable life skills such as financial management, interviewing, cooking and grilling, fitness, automotive and home maintenance, public speaking, fashion, social etiquette and more.
In addition to training their minds, students also test their physical limits and teamwork through sports, obstacle courses and other team-building activities. They learn how to take care of their bodies as they are challenged to develop discipline in their daily lives. The climax of the week is the championship game of flag football on the last night. The tournament is played throughout the week and crescendos with the final game under the bright lights of an official football field.
But most importantly, TeenPact Venture provides young men with the opportunity to grow spiritually. Through daily worship, devotions and discipleship, students are challenged to rise above societal standards of masculinity to be men of faith, purity and action. They study the scriptures to see what God has to say about masculinity and wisdom while developing accountability with their peers.
Led by an all-star team, composed of our 2017 Intern Guys, Venture provides young men with a platform for pursuing excellence as they seek to impact their world for Christ.
