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.

Morning alarms were snoozed with disbelief all across campus, as the sun burst into our dorm rooms.

In a heartbeat, everyone was up and at it, heading to the Conn Center to watch Mr. Burst and Ms. Kiss […]
Sunshine and cool temperatures brought students out of their dorms early this morning to grab donuts and enjoy deep conversation together. Lots of students now sit with friends during their time in God’s Word, and encourage one another by sharing stories of small groups and rendezvous from the day before. From the excitement of the […]
Competition certainly ramped up this Wednesday as frisbee teams returned from the fields with soiled shirts, leaving a muddy trail. Meanwhile, on the volleyball courts, the rain provided a momentary diversion from the competitive spirit, as students celebrated by doing handstands in several inches of water and teams splashed each other to prove their […]
Most students made it only a few steps outside of their dorms this morning before turning around and grabbing a rain jacket. For many, that moment may have been the last mundane moment the day had to offer. Opportunity, activity, and new beginnings abounded on this lively Tuesday. Students caught their first glimpse of the […]
Shouts of exuberance and a cascade of signs announced the entrance to the grandest TeenPact gathering of the year, greeting each van, buggy, semi, and campus police vehicle that drove past.

Dear friends, You will find in these words no unsuspected revelations or magic courses of action. All I offer is a call to reawaken ourselves to the infinite God who has called us together for the week of National Convention, and I pray that we will do far far more than read these words. […]

Every one of our students is different than the next, but in our diversity we find unity in Christ. When you attend National Convention, you’re joining a common pursuit, a common aim. This year, join us as […]
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.

God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him. – JOHN PIPER, DESIRING GOD Standing in the middle of a sea of faces, I looked up at the words on the screen once again. This time I read them more closely. I stopped singing for a moment and listened. But those around […]
