What is Awana? And what will it do for
our church/ministry?


AWANA is a Bible based ministry that provides a systematic program for children and youths, researched
and developed for over fifty years. The name AWANA is an acronym that stands for: Approved Workmen Are
Not Ashamed taken from 2 Timothy 2: 15. It is a weekly church program, highly attractive to young people
and evangelistic outreach. The materials present Bible truths in a doctrinal, sequential order. AWANA
provides a broad base for visitation contacts and many parent-oriented activities have reached entire
families for the Lord. AWANA clubs are an excellent training ground, not only for AWANA leaders, but for
other leadership positions. The clubs also provide a place of service for teenagers and new Christians
