Resources and Links for Leaders

There was open discussion breakout rooms and a time of encouragement. If you would like to see the presentation that was given, click the logo to download the Keynote/PDF presentation.

If you and your leaders are struggling to connect with one of our Canadian Field Team members to set up training for the fall, consider checking out this online US training site. These Awana Basics e-learning modules can be done at your own pace and remotely. This is a good option for leaders that cannot attend training or just need a refresher on the traditional Awana structure.

Round Table Presentation/Discussion Recording
