As Awana missionaries, they serve the Lord in the following six areas in Ohio:
Starting New Awana Programs, by meeting with interested Pastors and making Awana presentations to churches and parents.
Training Leaders, by conducting basic training, meeting with Commanders and Directors, and through the annual Fall Leadership Conferences.
Strengthening Churches, by counseling with Commanders and Pastors, speaking at Leaders' meetings, and evaluating clubs as we visit.
Building a Ministry Team, comprised of Event Coordinators, Commanders and other leaders with a broad vision for reaching boys and girls across the state.
Conducting Special Events for clubbers, including Bible Quizzing, Olympics, Grand Prix Racing, and Scholarship Camp.
Communicating with our churches, clubs and support team, through personal meetings, monthly pray & praise letters, and the Awana Newsletter.
Awana missionaries are available for club visits, training seminars, conferences, presentations, and pulpit supply. We will consult with Pastors and children's ministers to share our vision for reaching more boys and girls with the Gospel of Christ, and training them to serve Him.
Our Missionary Roles responsibilities are as follows:
Development Missionary (helping new churches get started)
Church Care Missionary (helping existing churches with lots of ideas)
Our visit to the MIddle East was blessed by the Lord! We trained workers, presented the gospel at clubs, made new friends, met with pastors, encouraged the missionary staff, and visited sites in Egypt and Israel. We encourage your clubbers to adopt a club in either country; we can make connections with the commanders so that your club can learn more and get involved in missions. Your prayers and financial support will make a tremendous impact for eternity. Email Steve for more info: SteveS@Awana.org
