Through the Leader-Based Strategy, AWANA invests in effectively equipping large groups of local leaders around the world by igniting their vision for children’s ministry and providing in-depth training. Leaders return home ready to reach kids year after year. These leaders spread this vision in their churches, raising up additional leaders, reaching neighborhoods of children, and impacting an entire community. Through this method, AWANA has seen incredible expansion. Local leaders, embedded in their own communities, can bring the Gospel to children in any context or culture. By investing in training, this worldwide ministry is sustainable long-term.

This May Be a Good Tool For Your Community If:

  • You have a heart to reach the children of your community with the Good News.
  • You want to be thoroughly trained in how to run a children’s program.
  • You want to partner with churches or people from other parts of the world.
