TeenPact in 2017

Greetings from Richmond, Virginia!


One year has just drawn to a close and we are now embarking on the new year, and a new season for TeenPact Leadership Schools.  Every year we spend a lot of time preparing for the upcoming year and transitioning from one year to the next.  Documents need to be updated, supplies need to be ordered, reservations need to be made, and much more.  This fall and early winter have brought additional, and more personal change, as we have said goodbye to several long-term employees and welcomed others.


The vision of TeenPact is changing lives to change the world, so this is not something new to any of us.  Our ministry is built on change – the changed lives of students attending a Four Day State Class for the first time, the changes as new staffers, Interns, and Program Directors take on new and exciting responsibilities, the changed relationships between students and parents, and the changed hearts as some of these students are introduced to Jesus Christ for the first time.


We see change all around us and we desire change in our home, our work, our country, and around the world, but what gives me comfort and peace is to know that we serve a God who never changes.  In the book of Hebrews we are told to remember our leaders and to imitate their faith, particularly our one true leader, Jesus Christ.  And the reason is given in Hebrews 13:8 – “Jesus is the same yesterday and today and forever.”  Whenever I begin to worry about the future, whether tomorrow or anytime this year or next, I remind myself that God is faithful and true to His promises.


One of the greatest promises is that He hears the prayers of His people.  As we begin a new year and as I asked you to do last year, would you commit to pray for the ministry of TeenPact in the following areas?



May God continue to bless TeenPact in 2017!



Peter Martin, President
