What is Awana?


For nearly 60 years, Awana has been a leader in awana1881children’s ministry, helping churches and parents worldwide raise children and youth to know, love and serve Christ.

Based in the Chicago area, Awana is the only organization with fully integrated evangelism and discipleship programs for ages 2 to 18 that actively involve parents, church leaders and mentors. Each week, more than a million children and youth, 250,000 volunteers and 300-plus field staff take part in Awana in over 18,000 churches in the U.S. and internationally.

The founders of Awana derived the Awana name from the first letters of Approved Workmen are not ashamed as taken from 2 Timothy 2:15 of the Bible.

Awana helps churches and parents work together to develop spiritually strong children and youth who faithfully follow Jesus Christ.  Our programs offer a proven approach for evangelizing and discipling kids in church and community.
