At AWANA, we believe that there is no greater calling than being the hands and feet of Jesus to children. For over 60 years, AWANA has partnered with the local church, both in the U.S. and around the world, equipping local leaders and laborers to reach kids with the Gospel and walk with them as they grow to create the church of tomorrow today.
The name “AWANA” is an acronym for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed, based on the Bible verse, 2 Timothy 2:15: “Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
AWANA’s prayer is that all children and youth throughout the world will come to know, love and serve the Lord Jesus Christ. Our prayer each year is that we will reach into the surrounding neighborhoods and find children who have not heard the good news that God loves them and sent His Son to die for their sins.
Statistics show that children who participate in AWANA through High School are 3.6 times more likely to read their Bible several times a week, and 92% still attend church weekly or more often. The proven formula of games, Bible memorization and Bible lessons, along with spiritual training from parents, reaps long-lasting results. We are thankful to be able to offer AWANA through 12th grade at South Holly.
