Ministry Partners

Awana has a long history of developing great-long term discipleship programs. We have been sharing the Gospel and equipping others to share the Gospel for over 65 years. But this does not mean we can effectively serve or reach all people groups. To do that, we need to rely on others that are serving and have expertise in areas we don't.

God has blessed many other ministries and people all over the world. It is Awana's goal to parter with like-minded ministries to Reach Kids, Equip Leaders and Change the World.

Awana is very blessed to have partnerships with the following ministries. Each of them providing needed advice, support and expertise in their area of speciality. Please check out their websites and continue to pray that God's ministries will come together to share the Gospel.
