Did you know that young people today are in spiritual danger? Only about 10-15 % of youth raised in the church have a biblical worldview when they finish high school. Heading into the world on their own 70-94 % of young adults will walk away from the church. According to an independent study, an amazing 92% of AWANA alumni surveyed, (teenagers and adults) who participated in AWANA clubs as kids for more than six years say they still attend church once a week. Those surveyed said they felt their participation in AWANA contributed as significantly to their faith, values, and character as all other church programs combined. What a testimony to what AWANA contributes to children. AWANA works.
The name AWANA is an acrostic for: "Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed." It comes from Paul's final letter in which he appeals to young Timothy: "Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth" (2 Timothy 2:15).
