It has been said that “all heroes are shadows of Christ.” Every year, hundreds of such shadows of Christ come through this ministry. Through hours of volunteer work by individuals all over the nation, many lives are served every year. One such group of servants is our traveling intern team. This is a group of 21 young men and women who give up six months of their life to travel full-time with TeenPact and run our State Classes in soon-to-be 42 states. Through their passion and devotion, lives are changed and change the world.


We want you to get to know these heroes along with us this season. So, without further ado, meet your 2018 traveling intern team!

While he now lives in Columbus, Ohio, studying at Ohio State (O-H-I-O), he claims it was growing up in Tampa that filled his heart with love for people, sports and all the other amazing things in life. In 2012, Jeremiah attended his first TeenPact Four Day Class. During the Wednesday night Evening Session, he surrendered his life to Christ.

Brent Vastbinder grew up midst the warm sunshine and Disney magic of Orlando, Florida.
