WHAT IS AWANA? We’re glad you asked!
AWANA (Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed), is an acrostic derived from 2 Timothy 2:15.
“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (NKJV).
The vision of AWANA is to help churches and parents raise children and youth to know, love, and serve Jesus Christ. This is achieved through and exciting, bible-based, weekly children’s program for preschool thru 6th grade.
AWANA began as a children’s program at the North side Gospel Center in Chicago in 1941 by Senior Pastor Lance Latham and the church’s your director, Art Rorheim, who both collaborated to develop weekly clubs that would appeal to churched and non-churched children, lead them to
trust Christ for salvation and grow them in enduring faith and service to God. Now it is an international ministry with over 12,000 churches in the U.S. and nearly 13,000 clubs worldwide.
Each week more than 1.5 million children participate in AWANA.
