What is Awana
Awana is an international, inter-denominational, Bible-centered ministry that provides club programs for kindergarten to high school-aged children through the local church. Awana is an acronym for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed (2 Timothy 2:15). Awana is a full-service ministry that provides training for churches, club evaluations, and special events.
The Awana ministry began in Chicago, Illinois where it was oﬃcially organized in 1950. To date, there are over 1 million children who attend club programs in the United States. An additional 100,000-plus children participate in club programs internationally. The Awana English Club oﬃcially started in Hong Kong in 1998. The Awana Chinese Club started in Hong Kong in 2001.
