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 […]

The World Will Know

This post was written by TeenPact Student Body Senator Chad Fryer of Georgia. If I’ve heard it once, I’ve heard it a hundred times. “The relationships you make at TeenPact are incredible.” What is it about TeenPact relationships that mean so much? How is it that you can meet a total stranger on Monday of […]

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. It was as though we were in the throne room, bowing in […]

Stop Romanticizing Love

This post was written by TeenPact Student Body President Toby Forehand of Georgia.   And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.  This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love […]

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). When my mom, Wendy Thomson (TeenPact New Mexico’s State Coordinator since before New Mexico was a state… basically), told me and my siblings about the #alumnimatch, it immediately […]

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. Over a year ago, I had decided that running for President would be an adventure and a challenge that God wanted me to boldly embrace. […]

To Celebrate or Not to Celebrate

Maybe it’s you. Maybe it’s a friend. Maybe it’s someone on television or a viral video on the gram.   There’s a lot of hate for the President of the United States.   Everyone has their favorite and least favorite presidents. President Reagan is adored by conservatives, while President Obama is heralded as one of […]

Showing Honor Where Honor is Due

Some thirty-eight years after declaring independence from King George’s reign, a thirty-five year old lawyer observed the bombardment of Fort McHenry in Baltimore Harbor by the British Navy. It was the height of the War of 1812.   From miles away, the sights and sounds of destruction were felt by many. And as the “dawn’s […]

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 […]

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 […]
