    Consider sharing a gift this Christmas towards the future (and present) church of our nation, represented in our children and youth. Click here to donate now.

    Christmas brings family and friends together. It helps us appreciate the love in our lives and reflect upon God’s love for us. As your family enjoys the blessing of giving this Christmas season, please consider prayerfully and financially supporting the Awana family as we strive to reach boys and girls for Christ. We have a big task ahead of us, but we know our God is bigger. God reveals His glory in using small things, as is evident in the Christmas story. Would you consider donating a small gift this Christmas season? We know it would have incredible impact. Thank you for your love and support for your local Awana Ontario team. I wish you and your family peace, happiness and health this Christmas season. May the awe of Christmas fill your heart and bring joy to your mind.

    –Josh Walsh, Regional Director for Ontario

We are continually looking for people who want to serve. Whether you want to serve a specific ethnic group, in your area locally or accross the whole region, we have a place for you.
