Jesus changes everything

The Event

What happens when Jesus breaks into our everyday? How do we live with the pulse of heaven in our hearts and the dirt of earth between our fingers?

What happens when the God who changes everything steps into the room? That’s what we’re asking this year at National Convention.


When you attend National Convention, you’re joining a common pursuit, a common aim. National Convention is the climax of the TeenPact year, drawing hundreds of TeenPacters from across the country — every attendee is different than the next, but we’re unified in a common pursuit, a common aim.

The National Convention experience is full of engaging speakers, passionate worship, dynamic small groups, hands-on activities, leadership opportunities, like-minded friends and life-changing memories. Don’t miss it.

National Convention 2018 will be held at Lee University, located in Cleveland, Tennessee.  Just 30 miles from Chattanooga, this beautiful campus is the ideal location for TeenPact’s largest event.

 

For those driving

Please arrive at Lee University between 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. on Monday, May 21. You can plan on leaving Lee by 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, May 27. If you are interested in organizing a carpool, we would be more than happy to connect you with other students from your area. Please let us know by contacting the TeenPact National Office at office@teenpact.com.

 

For those flying

Please book your flight into Chattanooga, TN (CHA). Please arrive between 1:00 p.m. and  4:00 p.m. on Monday, May 21. TeenPact staff will meet you at your baggage claim when you arrive. Please wear a TeenPact shirt to help us find you! You should plan to depart Chattanooga after 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, May 27. We will deliver you back to your ticketing counter when you depart.

NOTE: Due to scheduling, all National Convention attendees will be dropped off at the airport by 1:00 p.m. If your flight is later in the day, be prepared to wait in the airport until your departure.

We are not able to make airport runs to Nashville, Knoxville, or Atlanta, but we may be able to connect you with someone driving through these cities. If you would like to assist with student pickup, please let us know. Contact the TeenPact National Office at office@teenpact.com for more details or for any other travel requests.

There is no homework for this event.

  • Please review the dress code before packing.
  • Dress is casual for the week, but some people like to dress up a little bit in the evenings.
  • If you’re a candidate, consider dressing in a way that tells people “take me seriously,” especially during primaries, open forum and election returns.

Thanks for your interest in National Convention! If you are unable to attend this event, we invite you to join us via live stream (please check back for more information). Our goal at TeenPact is to create a distraction-free environment where each person can have a full and rewarding experience. In order to meet these ends, the following policy is in place for visitors, guests and parents at National Convention:

 

Students

We have an “all or nothing” policy for students wishing to attend National Convention. Students must register and participate in the entire event; no commuters or partial registrations are allowed.

Non-Student Siblings – While we love everyone’s brothers and sisters, National Convention is not set up to accommodate them. Exceptions are rare, but to inquire about a special circumstance you can email National Convention Program Director, Quinton Cools.

 

Parents

Parent chaperones play a huge role at TeenPact events and we love having them involved! Because we count on them during the week, we generally have an “all or nothing” policy for parents as well. Special requests can be directed to the National Convention Program Director, Quinton Cools.

 

Other Guests

Because we guard the focus and experience of our students very carefully, we have a strict visitor policy. All requests should be directed to the National Convention Program Director, Quinton Cools, for approval.

 

Every year, National Convention hosts high-energy, nation-wide elections for a single Presidential/Vice Presidential ticket, four Senate seats, and nine Representative seats. Campaigning at National Convention takes elections to the next level as candidates find creative and ambitious ways to spread their name recognition, making for a fun, exciting, and competitive environment!

Each candidate will first have to secure their party’s nomination in order to continue into the general election, making that first primary election a key part of the race! Continue checking in for more information on the 2018 National Election as NatCon gets closer.
