Making the Difference


At TeenPact, we teach a different kind of leadership. This leadership is counter-intuitive and counter-cultural. In short, Jesus doesn’t just call us to be leaders but to be servant leaders. “For even the Son of Man,” he taught his disciples, “came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a […]

Stand Fast. Run Well.


This post was written by TeenPact Student Body Representative John Clayton of Texas.   Last May, I was elected as your Representative of the TeenPact Nation, and I am honored and blessed to be in this position. I never knew that my own slogan of #StandFastRunWell would apply so much to my own life and […]

Celebrating 25


Twenty-five years of changing lives to change the world! This is more than a slogan, a vision statement or a tagline – it is the legacy of TeenPact Leadership Schools as we look forward to the 2019 State Class season. What started in 1994 as a single class of 18 students in the Georgia State […]

Worthy


This post was written by TeenPact Student Body Senator Hannah Freeland of Tennessee.   Back at the beginning of this year, I had the incredible opportunity to share my message of “WORTHY” with the TeenPact Nation. But I didn’t get to share everything I wanted to say – a minute and a half on stage […]

The Magnitude of Mercy


This post was written by TeenPact Student Body Senator Joel Myers of Nebraska.   This is not the story I wanted to tell.   When I began to write this post, I thought I knew exactly what I was supposed to share. I thought I had a message that was not only worth spreading but […]

God’s Tapestry


This post was written by TeenPact Student Body Senator Maggie Megelsh of Tennessee.   I recently saw a woman making a tapestry. She worked from the back of the tapestry, weaving in a new piece of colored thread every few minutes. The back of the tapestry was a tangled mess of thread, tied off in […]

On Things Above


This post was written by TeenPact Student Body Senator Isaac Richardson of Missouri.   I was an easily distracted child. I can’t count the number of times my mom gave me a school assignment to then ten minutes later find me outside jumping on our trampoline and not doing school. As I have grown older, […]

Stick With It


This post was written by TeenPact Student Body Representative Libby Robinson of Georgia.   As with any event, it’s easy to go through the motions at National Convention. You can become so emotionally invested in what you’re experiencing that you often get what some might call a “spiritual high.” I find myself falling into this […]

Escaping the House of Fear


This post was written by TeenPact Student Body Representative Seth Martin of Virginia.   It was election night at National Convention. I anxiously awaited for the results to roll in, full of fear instead of peace. I didn’t realize it at the time, but I had hung a lot on who would win. More than […]

We Do Not Lose Heart


This post was written by TeenPact Student Body Representative Laura Gosz of Oklahoma.   “I’m so excited to go home!” I told my Rendezvous leader at a TeenPact event several years ago. My leader gave me a puzzled look…tonight was the last night of the event, and my statement clearly caught the sniffly group by […]

By Faith, Not Feeling


This post was written by TeenPact Student Body Representative Anna Claire Williams of Mississippi.   Sometimes the Lord takes us though a spiritual desert in order to reveal that He is the only one that can quench our thirst. The dryness won’t make sense. At least, it didn’t make sense to me. About three years […]

I have the privilege to represent the TeenPact student body for the 2018-2019 year. During election night, I tried to focus my efforts on […]

Like Playing with LEGOs


This post was written by TeenPact Student Body Representative Patrick Sullivan of Florida.   Something that really helps me to understand God’s word and my faith are analogies. That’s what Jesus did with His people. To get his point across, He would tell them a parable in order for them to understand what He was […]

Hope During Hardship


This post was written by TeenPact Student Body Senator Micah Burk of Oklahoma.   A few weeks ago, my Church began a study on the book of Habakkuk. Through this study it became so apparent to me just how many people are suffering in my community. The fact is that we will all face low […]

Dear TeenPacter,   Three months and three weeks ago I was elected, alongside my good friend Toby DeMoss and 13 congress members, to represent the TeenPact student body for the 2018-2019 year. I still get chills as I think of all the excitement and nervousness I felt that Friday night, trying my best to focus […]

The Impact of TeenPact


“I’m not sure I can do this,” I thought, my red pen aimed at the crisp, white pages. Summer was winding down; the semester loomed ahead. I knew I couldn’t finish this project with college classes and work. I considered postponing the project until Christmas, but the more I thought and prayed about it, the […]
