Our Mission

Our Prayer: That All Children will come to Know Love and Serve Christ

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 the church and community.

As a ministry leader for 70 years, Awana is making an impact. A recent national survey found Awana to be as important to our alumni’s spiritual foundation as all other church activities combined. Among alumni who participated in our programs for at least six years, 92.7 percent still attend church at least weekly as adults!

Each week, over 4.5 million kids ages 2 to 18 participate in Awana. almost 9,000 churches in the U.S. and nearly 54,000 internationally run Awana programs that change young lives through biblical truth.
