First Day of the Season


Can you believe that the 2017 Season begins today?   At last year’s National Convention we began interviewing hundreds of students who applied to staff our 2017 State Classes. A number of last year’s staffers were accepted to serve as Traveling Interns. Four of last year’s Intern Guys have stepped up to be Program Directors.   Ever since […]

Changing Lives to Change the World


“Why not? Why not believe that one day the most critically acclaimed director in Hollywood could be an active Christian layman in his church? Why not hope that the Pulitzer Prize for investigative reporting could go to a Christian journalist? Is it really too much of a stretch to think that a major exhibit at the Museum […]

Amazed and Humbled


Alumni Stories – Bryce Melvin Over 17 years ago, I attended my first TeenPact State Class at the Florida Capitol. As a 12-year-old student, I was not of age for the Four Day Class so, with the help of my mom, I wrote a letter requesting a waiver to attend the class. A few weeks […]

All Glory Be To Christ


Over the past several months I have experienced a growing conviction which I believe to be from the Lord. Perhaps you can relate to what I’ve been going through. Paul writes about this very thing in Galatians 1.   “I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of […]

That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.


    Have you watched A Charlie Brown Christmas? It’s a personal favorite to watch every holiday season. I thought I might use this 1965 classic to remind us of what Christmas is really all about.   All throughout the episode, Charlie Brown and his friends consistently misunderstand Christmas. At one point, Charlie Brown looks over at […]

Hearing God’s Voice Over the Noise


There’s something beautiful and insightful about spending time in the wilderness, surrounded by God’s beautiful creation; I can’t think of a better way to appreciate God’s majesty. That’s exactly what ASAP is about, spending the week completely shut off from the rest of the world and surrounded on all sides by beautiful mountains, by trees […]

The Foundation of My Faith


This week’s installment of the TeenPact Blog comes from Danny Pearson (FL). Danny attended TeenPact Venture 2016, held October 16-21 in Dayton, Tennessee.     I came into the week with big expectations, and still they were exceeded.  I had never attended Venture before this year, but I had heard from several friends that it was great.  […]

Trusting God


Tomorrow we vote to elect the next President of the United States.   If you are a current TeenPact student, you are likely saying to yourselves, “I am too young to vote in this election.” And that is true. However, as is often communicated at the State Class and other Alumni Events, you are not […]

With My God I Can Scale a Wall

Endeavor 2016 Recap


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 […]
