The Reward of Seeking Christ


This post was written by TeenPact Student Body Representative Caleb Shirk from Connecticut. At National Convention this year, God showed me countless reasons of why we should be so excited to praise His name.

Is Trust Even Possible?


This post was written by TeenPact Student Body Senator Anna Claire Williams from Mississippi Honestly, I have no idea what it means, and I don’t think that any of us will until we reach Heaven.

God’s Gift of Being Unique


This post was written by TeenPact Student Body Representative David Gosz from Oklahoma “Leadership” is a word we hear frequently in TeenPact. My eyes used to glaze over at the mention of leadership because it seemed repetitive and unnecessary for people to talk about it so much. But the truth is, TeenPact, our parents, and […]

Pizza Parties and Wisdom


This post was written by TeenPact Student Body Representative Nathan Furlough of Ohio. Of all my experiences in TeenPact, one of my favorites is staffing the one-day class. For those unfamiliar, the one-day class takes 8-12-year-olds on a fast-track of the basic TeenPact elements. Every one-day class builds up to the grand finale; TeenPact legislature. […]

True Light


This post was written by TeenPact Student Body Senator Logan Hancock of South Carolina. As a former Florida kid, I’ve spent a fair amount of time at the beach. A few times a year, sections of the beach were roped off to keep people out. Naturally, as a young kid, the best place to play […]

Valleys, Mountaintops, and In-Between


This post was written by TeenPact Student Body Representative Meredith Durham of South Carolina. This life is not all sunshine and roses. There are so many outlets for us to see the highlights of others’ lives while only seeing the messy, difficult aspects of our own. We fall into the trap of thinking, “Well, I […]

Without My Abilities, Am I Worthless?


This post was written by TeenPact Student Body Representative Chloe Carlson of Texas.   I was driving down the road on a blazing hot summer day a few months ago, listening to a podcast when the speaker of the show asked his guest two questions that I desperately needed to hear. He said, “if you […]

By His Power


This post was written by TeenPact Student Body Representative Kylee Brandon of Florida.   It was electrifying. I felt such an energy and passion for Christ while standing in the midst of hundreds of other believers at National Convention. It was absolutely electrifying.

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 […]

When Losing Hurts


TeenPact National Elections are right around the corner. This has given me nearly a year to reflect on my own experience with the election process.   Wow. What a journey.
