Getting Started

God's vision to multiply leaders has been planted in countless individuals. Awana helps nurture this vision. Local churches and ministries partner with Awana to train leaders who change kids’ lives forever. With more than 60 years of training leaders, Awana has proven resources and relevant training that offer spiritual experiences for kids and help them develop into vibrant leaders at home, church and in their community.

Getting Started is a live training for new and existing leaders. You will learn the foundational principles that make Awana work, how to share the gospel with clarity and confidence, and will participate in a practical demonstration of an entire club meeting.

Whether you're a new leader or have served in Awana for years, Getting Started has something for you. You'll not only get practical guidance, but you'll also renew your passion for children's and youth ministry.
