Mission Statement for the TEC Movement

Believing that the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the core message of our Christian faith, we offer to youth and young adults the opportunity to encounter and integrate this Paschal Mystery at a time of passage through young adulthood.

Teens Encounter Christ (TEC) is a recognized movement of the Roman Catholic Church, offering to youth and young adults an experience of the Paschal Mystery of Jesus. Through evangelization and catechesis, this intergenerational movement facilitates spiritual growth of youth and young adults with a community of adult mentors. TEC calls forth one’s goodness for service in the Church and world.

Purpose of the TEC Conference

The TEC Conference is committed to provide formation and education of adult leaders, quality resources, and a network of support and communication. The TEC Conference remains committed to the development of TEC as an integral part of the vision of total youth and young adult ministry.

Lord Jesus, help us to die, rise and go forth in Your love!
