God at Work Quote
In the midst of the great recession, God has incredibly and marvelously provided for Shiloh.
C.I.T., or Christians In Training, is an intensive, three week discipleship program for teens at Shiloh. 10 teens and two young adult cabin leaders provide much of the necessary maintenance and service work while summer camp is going on. However the real value of the CIT program is in the emphasis on prayer, personal quite time and in-depth Bible study. Each day starts with a devotion, given by one of the teens regarding what God is teaching them; after that, personal quite time and Bible study. At breakfast, and each subsequent meal, the CIT'ers will serve tables and clean up both the kitchen and bathrooms. After Breakfast, there is a short lesson on prayer and the kids break up into groups or individually and spend time in prayer. After lunch, there are several work projects from trimming weeds or chopping wood to large projects like helping raise a new swing set. After dinner, the teens take part in a study of the book of Romans; then an organized game, a raid of the kitchen to clean up any leftovers (especially desserts!) and then the cabin leaders lead a night devotion. On weekends we might be traveling out to some adventure like a nearby waterfall to cool off. Participants must be Christian teens who are actively following the Lord and have a recommendation from a church leader to participate. We are still taking applications for Session 2 CIT Boys; if you want a life-changing three weeks, apply now!
