This year TeenPact will hold dynamic, hands-on government and leadership 
This year TeenPact will hold dynamic hands-on government and leadership classes in 39 states. We are excited about the opportunity to help students become active citizens and grow stronger in their walk with God. Our mission is to train youth to understand the political process, value their liberty, defend their Christian faith, and engage the culture. Missouri's TeenPact class will be held March 4-7, 2013 in Jefferson City, Missouri. A Political Communication Workshop (optional) will follow on March 8.
TeenPact is a comprehensive leadership experience that brings teens closer to Jesus Christ, makes them better leaders, and positions them to impact public policy in their state. During the week, students meet important officials, interact with other like-minded students, and have more fun at the Capitol than they could have ever imagined. Students leave inspired and challenged with an intensive desire to change America for Christ!
Your child will leave TeenPact with a clearer understanding of government than most college graduates. There is no better way for high school students to earn their high school civics credit!
Students enjoy worship & devotions and meet important officials, interview lobbyists, view campaign disclosures, improve their public speaking skills, write their own bills, and conduct their own TeenPact legislature. They analyze public policy from a Biblical worldview and learn to "take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ" (2 Corinthians 10:5).
Other activities include: Reading actual bills that are being worked through the legislature
    •    Researching how political candidates spend their campaign money
    •    Analyzing media content with an emphasis on worldview
    •    Participating in student elections
    •    Learning about the structure and content of our nation's Constitution
What about children under 13?
The TeenPact One Day Class is an abbreviated version of the Four Day, designed specifically for ages 8-12. This class focuses on
    •    The biblical responsibility to pray for our leaders
    •    The principle of "higher authority"
    •    The "bill-to-law" legislative process
    •    Public speaking for young students
Date: March 8, 2013

This is TeenPact Leadership School's 11th year in Missouri. I am thrilled at what God is doing in my generation as He raises up youth to "stand in the gap"! (Ezekiel 22:30)

Hope to see you at TeenPact in March!
