What is Awana?
Awana stands for “Approved workmen are not ashamed.” Awana is an international, Bible-centered children’s and youth ministry providing thousands of local churches with weekly clubs, programs and training for students in preschool through high school. Their goal is to equip churches to reach children and teenagers, and their families, with the gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him. (Learn about the prayer, vision, mission and values of Awana.) The acronym Awana comes from the first letters of Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed as taken from 2 Timothy 2:15.
Awana began in 1950 as a youth program at the North Side Gospel Center in Chicago, Illinois. Lance Latham, the church pastor, worked with Art Rorheim to develop a program that would appeal to young people, reach them with the gospel and train them in the Lord’s work. Other churches heard about the success of the Awana program and asked if they could use it. By 1960, Awana had registered 900 churches to start Awana.
Today, more than 12,000 U.S. churches run Awana. There are clubs in all 50 states. Awana can also be found in over 4,100 churches in over 110 other countries and six continents.
