A Ministry of Excellence

Count Me In

The following is written by TeenPact graduate Fuzz Thomson of New Mexico. After attending as a student, Fuzz served as a staffer, Traveling Intern, and Program Director (2009).

Who is this kid?

Who is this kid and what has happened to my son?   Discovering that no TeenPact State Class was available in the state of Arkansas was a blow to our son, Mitchell. Moving to a new state was challenging enough, but no TeenPact? What even….   That year, 1999, Mitchell asked Mr. Echols if he could […]

Without a Limit

This post was written by TeenPact Student Body Representative Skylar Babin of Florida.   Dear World Changers,   Recently, I was invited to a film festival called “Mountainfilm Fest”.

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 […]

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.

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.

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, […]
