The mission of Awana is to equip leaders to reach kids with the gospel and engage them in lifelong discipleship. Since 1950, Awana has been a leader in children's ministry, helping churches and parents worldwide raise children and youth to know, love and serve the Lord Jesus Christ. Awana is the only organization with fully integrated evangelism and discipleship programs for ages 2-18 that actively engages parents, church leaders, and mentors. Each week over 4.9 million children and youth, 427,000 volunteers, and 200 field staff take part in Awana in over 66,000 churches in the U.S. and around the globe. In 2020, leaders of Awana co-authored Resilient: Child Discipleship and the Fearless Future of the Church a book that looks beyond the tactics of everyday ministry and focuses energy on the few key factors that truly contribute to effective, long-term discipleship. Awana also released a digital weekend curriculum packed with biblically sound and Gospel-centered lessons, called Brite.
