Every year, a theme is prayerfully chosen for all who attend to contemplate the Lord and His Word more deeply. This year’s theme, Beholding, encouraged teens and adults alike to consider what they regularly gaze upon: “What you look at shapes who you are. Maybe what you’re looking at disappoints you or is draining, full of comparison and busyness.. Perhaps what you are beholding hasn’t produced the kind of joy and life you long for. Pick up your head and look to the only One who is worthy of beholding.”



Building Social Skills and Christ-centered Community

This week is not only designed to foster an increasing relationship with Christ, but to provide a myriad of opportunities to connect and deepen relationships with others. Teens frequently report that TeenPact experiences help them become more confident in their social skills, allowing them to have a greater impact in their personal and professional lives.



What an amazing week that was blessed by God in so many wonderful ways. God answered many prayers throughout the week, changed lives for eternity, and equipped lives for the future. We are so grateful for the blessings that He gave us. Thank you to all who have faithfully prayed and given so that this impact was possible.” 


With Gratitude and Blessings,
