History of AWANA

Since 1950, AWANA has grown from a one-church program into a ministry that includes more than 6,500 churches in the United States and another 1,300 in more than 80 countries worldwide. Local churches reach hundreds of thousands of young people every week by using the AWANA program. The goal of AWANA is to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ and to train them to serve Him. The word AWANA stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed, and comes from 2 Timothy 2:15. AWANA is a fun and exciting way for children to learn scripture! Awana(R) and the Awana logo are trademarks of Awana Clubs International. Used by permission.
