My Friend, Jimmy Brazell


Jimmy Brazell continues to inspire me.   I met Jimmy when we were volunteering with TeenPact for the first time. We were both attending the ministry’s inaugural Staff Training event and quickly became friends. Providence would have it that we would staff together not once, not twice, but three times that year.

TeenPact is Like a Deck of Cards


It was only last week that I drove away from TeenPact Survival Northwest.   Survival was absolutely amazing, and I’m coming to realize that words don’t quite express the things you experience at TeenPact.
