What IS Awana?
   Awana has been variously described as: a message; a tool; an experience; and a way to reach around the world. The co-founder of Awana, Art Rorheim, perhaps best describes it:
   "The very heart of Awana is the Word of God. As young people learn that Jesus Christ died on the cross for their sins, and arose in victory from the dead, they believe in Christ as Savior and accept His wonderful gift of salvation. The Great Commission is being accomplished in young hearts."
   Awana is a Christ centered, Bible based ministry committed to reaching children and youth with the gospel of Christ. Weekly programs promote an atmosphere of fun and excitement as young people learn at a local church. The acronym Awana stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed. The key verse of Awana is 2 Timothy 2:15: "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be shamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."
