Through dynamic experiences, TeenPact seeks to inspire youth in their relationship with Christ and train them to understand the political process, value their liberty, defend the Christian faith, and engage the culture around them. “Changing lives to change the world” is more than a vision statement to us. It’s what we do every day.
At TeenPact, we believe students learn best by doing. That’s why our State Classes are comprised of focused hands-on leadership training. With classes offered across the nation and for students ages 8-19, young people will quickly discover how to embrace their call as the next generation of leaders through the unique tools, teaching, and opportunities TeenPact provides.
Our Alumni Events take students deeper in their relationship with Christ as they build lasting community and grow through intentional leadership training. While events activities range from meeting legislators on Capitol Hill to team building in South Dakota, the focus is the same – training students to be influential and servant-hearted leaders.
Two weeks ago, 100 students, parents, and TeenPact staff arrived in our nation’s Capital. Students came by planes and trains, short car rides and multi-day caravans. We had early mornings and late nights, lots of D.C. METRO rides and hours and hours of training sessions, tours, and small group campaign exercises. We gathered for Back to D.C., an event chock full of […]
Endeavor exists to inspire and equip young women to glorify and enjoy God. Over a year ago, when I was invited to step up as the Program Director for TeenPact’s Endeavor programs, I already knew that I loved the vision of Endeavor. The catechistic language was appealing, but, even more than that, such a […]
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. As I was thinking over what happened at this event, a sort of story started to form in my mind. Maybe you’ll appreciate reading it. […]
Saturday afternoon, the golden Georgia air was filled with exclamations of delight and laughter as girls from around the nation arrived for TeenPact Endeavor East. With the door swung wide open on the huge lakeside house, new and old friends were joyfully welcomed to the space we’ll be calling home for the week. While girls […]

Who are you? Think deeply on these three simple words. Sure, you might answer quickly with your name, where you’re from, or your hobbies. But is that truly answering the question? Are these surface level facts the defining makeup of who we are? Is it our past; the decisions we’ve made, the people we know […]
Last summer, I had the opportunity to attend Judicial, my first TeenPact Alumni Event. It was such a full week––spiritually, intellectually, and relationally. Throughout the program, we were all stretched in different ways, and it was incredible to see people excel as they stepped further and further out of their comfort zones. I have […]

There’s something beautiful and insightful about spending time in the wilderness, surrounded by God’s beautiful creation; I can’t think of a better way to appreciate God’s majesty. That’s exactly what ASAP is about, spending the week completely shut off from the rest of the world and surrounded on all sides by beautiful mountains, by trees […]
This week’s installment of the TeenPact Blog is written by Brent Buterbaugh (OH). Brent participated as a student at TeenPact’s Advanced Survival Adventure Program (“ASAP”), held October 24-29 in Del Rio, Tennessee. One of the central tenants of a TeenPact program is the dreaded phrase: “Get out of your comfort zone”. In a State […]
This week’s installment of the TeenPact blog comes from Abby Brumbaugh (WY). Abby attended TeenPact Survival Northwest 2016, September 11-16, in Keystone, South Dakota. While attending my first Four Day State Class this spring, I realized how amazing TeenPact is. Why? I learned that the way I lived that week didn’t matter as much as […]

Kailey attended TeenPact Survival Northwest, one of our TeenPact Alumni Events that was held September 11-16 in in Keystone, South Dakota. A hike in the peaceful woods. Cooking breakfast over an open campfire. Making new friends that are now best […]
This was by far my favorite TeenPact event I have attended. There were many times throughout the week that I felt God’s presence and His peace. Some of those times were through devotions or Rendezvous, while others were simply witnessing His hand in history through the museums I visited. However, worship at the Lincoln Memorial definitely […]
Congress 2016 opened with a bang, as President of the Senate Zach Kaufman gaveled in the first joint session in the hallowed halls of the Florida Capitol. The fifth TeenPact Congress Session was one of largest ever, with almost 90 students from all over the United States. Students came for a real life legislative experience, […]
TeenPact Judicial 2016 was held July 10-16 at Liberty University School of Law. Today we bring you a student testimony written by our friend, Abigail Kent, from Oklahoma. After returning from TeenPact Judicial, many of my friends have asked, “You went to a law school camp, right?” “How was it?” “What was Judicial like?” […]
