A Special Message from Jeff Pruett:
I am extremely excited to announce a monumental change in the Honor Academy. The Honor Academy, along with the rest of
Teen Mania will be going through a HUGE transformation over the next several months. Teen Mania Ministries will be renamed Teen Mania International, and be moving to Dallas, Texas by the end of the year. You can read more about the Teen Mania International transition here: Teen Mania Moving Forward!
I was a part of the transition of this same property 18 years ago as apart of Last Days Ministries, which owned and occupied the land prior to Teen Mania/Honor Academy. I remember when Teen Mania bought the land, and although I was sad to see that powerful era end, I was also excited for the new wineskin God was bring. As the era in East Texas for the HA comes to a close, I am just as saddened to see it end, but am also looking forward with great hope and expectancy to the fruitfulness God has in store for the ministry.
We are so energized for this new transition and the new era of The Honor Academy. In this time of change we remember that this ministry is about people and not the bricks and mortar or for that matter location…it has been and always will be about people and a vision to win for the Lamb the reward of His suffering. As a ministry we feel that we can accomplish our mission and more in Dallas, Texas. Godspeed!
Here we decided to ask many of your questions that you are probably asking right now:
What are the benefits of moving to Dallas?
Dallas provides huge benefits for The Honor Academy. Ministry partners will be in closer proximity, allowing for greater collaboration. Interns will see expanded ministry opportunities and access to leaders, teachers and resources that are difficult to come by in East Texas. An additional benefit to this move is the enhancement of the intern experience with upgraded housing facilities. Dallas also offers greater opportunities for interns to be plugged into a vibrant faith community.
What does The Honor Academy look like moving forward?
The Honor Academy will continue to provide world-class Christian leadership training. Interns will remain an integral part of a cutting-edge ministry that is reaching their generation in greater numbers around the world. All of the programs, classes, and events will continue to be offered in our new facility.
Will the new location be safe?
Safety has always been important to Teen Mania and will continue to be a top priority. Throughout our 28 year history we have been entrusted with the safety of over 72,000 missionaries and over 6,500 Honor Academy participants. It is for this reason that we are being very selective with the location of our new headquarters.
What will housing look like?
We will rent houses and apartments just as we did when The Honor Academy was located in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Core Advisors and Dorm Managers would continue to live onsite.
What will food and housing look like for interns?
The Honor Academy will continue to provide the full range of benefits currently offered to interns. Food and housing will continue to be paid through the cost of the internship. High caliber classes, discipleship and Life-Transforming Events will continue to take place at the level of excellence that interns, parents and pastors have come to expect.
What will transportation look like?
Interns will not be required to have a vehicle. Our ideal location will be within safe walking distance to classroom facilities. If we are unable to find a location meeting these criteria, we will ensure that transportation is provided to all Honor Academy classes and activities.
Will Life Transforming Events still exist?
Yes! We look forward to the opportunity to improve on our Life Transforming Events with access to greater facilities and sites within the Dallas Fort Worth Area.
Will the cost of the Honor Academy increase?
At this time, no. If the cost does increase, anyone who has already applied to the Honor Academy will be locked in to the current cost.
