A Word From Christ In Youth
Christ in Youth specializes in connecting young people with Jesus Christ. We believe that God is opening the door to
some incredible opportunities for CIY to minister to this generation. It is our vision that one million teenagers will
have a life-changing encounter with Jesus Christ through CIY during this decade, as they stand at the crossroads of
their lives. A CIY conference or event is a special place where young people can come and experience God and his
Word in a way that can transform their lives! We are committed to providing life changing experiences that will ef-
fect hundreds of thousands of teenagers during the next few years. Christ in Youth exist to connect young people
with Jesus Christ. Our mission at Christ in Youth is dedicated to providing opportunities for young people to experi-
ence God and his Word in a way that transforms their lives! Our purpose and mission is accomplished through offer-
ing conferences, service projects, and mission trips for young people for young people as they stand at the cross-
roads of their lives; and by providing training and resources for the adults who work with them. We believe that the
Bible is fully inspired Word of God. Faith in Jesus and obedience to his teachings are essential for salvation. Jesus is
fully God. Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died a death of atonement on the cross, was bodily resur-
rected, and is coming again in judgment of all men. Heaven and hell are literal, as taught in the Bible. CIY is com-
mitted to the restoration of New Testament teaching, principles and practices.

What is Know Sweat Service Projects?


Know Sweat Service Projects began in 1995 with a single week in Eminence, MO. At that time it was called Jr.
High Service Projects and was a program designed only for middle school students.
Many things have changed about the program since those early days but the core principles remain. Know
Sweat has and always will be a program which enables students to put their faith in action. Our vision is to
teach students about being a servant and helping them understand that service is a foundational part of being a
Christian. We believe that no matter who you are or what you do with your life, you are called to serve as Christ
would. When we humble ourselves and serve those around us we demonstrate the love of God in a practical
way.
Today Know Sweat has 16 weeks in 9 cities in the U.S. as well as one location in Mexico. Most weeks are open
to both junior high and senior high students and provide a chance for your church to serve those in difficult posi-
tions.
In an attempt to best serve those in need, we have developed these general guidelines for project selection:
*Widows or widowers in need. Those who live on fixed incomes and have no outside help.
*Elderly couples. Those ages 65 or older that live on fixed incomes and have no outside help.
*People with disabilities that do not have access to outside government help.
*Single parent families on fixed incomes.
*Families with an income under $12,000 a year.
These services are offered free of charge to the recipient with no strings attached. Our projects come from part-
nerships with community organizations, referrals and from the local churches. Each recipient goes through a
simple interview process to ensure that the work and experience are as good as possible for each youth group.
Know Sweat gives junior and senior high students an opportunity to take their love for Christ and translate it into
love for a neighbor. CIY service projects are entry-level service trips that include tasks like repairing, painting
and general cleaning up of property owned by the elderly, single parents, or low-income families. During the
evening, students come together for a time of worship and teaching to biblically solidify the principles they prac-
ticed during the day. Individual youth groups are also given time to debrief. Know Sweat is an opportunity for
students to give the gospel hands and feet of service.
Dates & Location
July 14thth - 18th

Cincinnati Ohio
Home to a very diverse people group, Cincinnati is a unique blend of
old and new culture. The city is famous for its chili, sports teams,
and industrial facilities, and yet, the houses are among the oldest in
the state, and the inner city neigborhoods are deteriorating. It's in
areas like these that you will be making repairs to homes of the
elderly and poor and working to meet the many needs within the city.

TESTIMONY

This is my first year of Know Sweat. We have


painted, cleaned up the yard & cleared trash. I have
learned to trust and love other people more. My
view of service has changed by being with other
people & helping them. I had thought about getting
baptized before, but now I have talked with my
youth minister, and now I will, because Jesus has
become more real to me."-- Student,
