AWANA-More Than A Strange Name

What is AWANA besides a club with a strange name? AWANAs, this is an organization that has been active in the Jansen Bible Church for several years. But other than a youth organization related to church, exactly what is it?

AWANA stands for Approved Workers Are Not Ashamed which is taken from 2nd Timothy 2:15. It is founded as a parachurch organization. That is to say that is a non-denominational organization that is designed to work with any church. It has been in existence for sixty years and currently has 1.5 million children and youth involved in the organization. This requires 250,000 volunteers with 170 plus field staff. AWANAs is placed in 22,000 churches nationally and internationally. It works with children and youth ages 2-18 years.
