AWANA program for children
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 60 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, more than one million kids ages 2 to 18 participate in Awana. Over 12,000 churches in the U.S. and more than 9,000 internationally run Awana programs that change young lives through biblical truth.

One to One Discipleship
Allen and Pat Jones
We disciple with the essentials of the faith in a practical and relevant way as soon as possible after a person accepts Jesus as their Savior. Just as a newborn has needs, the new believer has needs that have to be addressed quickly and expertly. A discipler is equipped to mentor a new believer in a one-on-one relationship using a workbook, which deals with the topics of assurance, priorities, overcoming temptation and sin, and the spiritual disciplines of prayer, Bible study, fellowship, and evangelism and discipleship.
Gayle is willing to take pictures of new attenders and keep the Attender Photo Board up to date to allow us to learn the new folks.
