National Appeals

Reaching more kids,  Equipping more leaders,  Changing the world for Christ

Interns as Future Leaders – Partner With Us

Awana International Canada has recently been denied funding support for summer interns because we have not checked the government attestation box. We did not check this box because we did not agree to all the points within the attestation statement that was required for successful application to the summer internship program.

Reach Kids Equip Leaders Change the World for Christ

Awana International Canada has a vision for all kids to come to know, love and serve Jesus through hearing the gospel. We are currently working alongside 461 churches in Canada to reach over 30,000 children every week. But our vision doesn’t stop there. We also want to multiply the number of Christian leaders across Canada through ongoing training and leadership courses for ministry workers and volunteers. In 2018, 750 new church leaders were trained and over 1,500 leaders took part in a variety of different training courses.

When we journey with kids through long term discipleship programs and provide leaders training and service opportunities, we equip the next generation to serve locally, nationally and internationally. Through their service and ongoing engagement with local churches and ministries they have the capacity to change their communities, our nation and our world for Christ.

Meet Rebekah – Awana student, volunteer, summer intern, long term advocate

“I grew up in the Awana ministry from Cubbies to Journey I have read through the Bible 3 times and memorized thousands of verses because of my involvement in a midweek programs. I never thought I would have the opportunity to pour back into the ministry that poured so much into me. When I had the chance to apply for summer internship I did and it turned out to be a fantastic experience. Awana staff and the churches I worked with helped me to discover the things that I am passionate about and good at. They also provided a long-term role for me to reach for.

"The internship provided me with some experience and exposure to different responsibilities within the ministry, and assurance that Awana was a match for me. Since I have now been an Awana student, volunteer and summer intern, I can be sure in the knowledge that I have the heart for full-time ministry. I am now coming into my third year of being on staff with Awana and I love my job as Advocate of Church Care for Ontario."

Rebekah’s journey into ministry is not unique to her. Over the past three summers Awana International Canada has hired 20 interns of which four have become Awana Advocates who fill critical ministry roles in the areas of church care, volunteer training, design and administration.

Consider Partnering with Us

This summer positions exist for interns to coordinate High power gospel sports camps, to promote, plan and staff Awana scholarship camps, and as well to provide training for church volunteers who will be running Awana mid-week programs next September.

Please consider partnering with us to sponsor an intern or a portion of an intern’s salary this summer.

Our goal is to raise $45,500.00 which will support 7 summer interns.
