Though we are only a little over halfway through 2017, much of the attention in the TeenPact office and around the TeenPact Nation is on the 2018 season.   Over […]

Entering a New Season

I’m struck with a loss for words. How do you describe the blessing and the impact something like TeenPact has been and has made? I entered this organization at thirteen, and now five years later, the time has come to enter a new stage of life. I honestly cannot even express how thankful I am […]

Join the Brotherhood

Who are you? Think deeply on these three simple words. Sure, you might answer quickly with your name, where you’re from, or your hobbies. But is that truly answering the question? Are these surface level facts the defining makeup of who we are? Is it our past; the decisions we’ve made, the people we know […]

Friday – Returns

  Morning alarms were snoozed with disbelief all across campus, as the sun burst into our dorm rooms. The excitement for election results following the previous night’s voting hardly allowed time for deep sleep. In a heartbeat, everyone was up and at it, heading to the Conn Center to watch Mr. Burst and Ms. Kiss […]

Thursday – Digging In

  Sunshine and cool temperatures brought students out of their dorms early this morning to grab donuts and enjoy deep conversation together. Lots of students now sit with friends during their time in God’s Word, and encourage one another by sharing stories of small groups and rendezvous from the day before. From the excitement of the […]

Wednesday – The Race

  Competition certainly ramped up this Wednesday as frisbee teams returned from the fields with soiled shirts, leaving a muddy trail. Meanwhile, on the volleyball courts, the rain provided a momentary diversion from the competitive spirit, as students celebrated by doing handstands in several inches of water and teams splashed each other to prove their […]

Tuesday – Beginnings

Most students made it only a few steps outside of their dorms this morning before turning around and grabbing a rain jacket. For many, that moment may have been the last mundane moment the day had to offer. Opportunity, activity, and new beginnings abounded on this lively Tuesday. Students caught their first glimpse of the […]

Monday – Arrival

Shouts of exuberance and a cascade of signs announced the entrance to the grandest TeenPact gathering of the year, greeting each van, buggy, semi, and campus police vehicle that drove past. Likely, the love of TeenPact could be heard throughout Cleveland, Tennessee.  The joy of each reunion was eclipsed only by the joy of the […]

Preparing Your Heart for National Convention 2017

Dear friends,   You will find in these words no unsuspected revelations or magic courses of action. All I offer is a call to reawaken ourselves to the infinite God who has called us together for the week of National Convention, and I pray that we will do far far more than read these words. […]

The End of the Season

James 4:6 shares a familiar passage from Proverbs 3 – “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”    Do you feel that God is teaching you a lesson every time you open your mouth? I have had that feeling often this past week.   As you know, we have just completed a […]
