Jordan

Unlike most Arab countries, Jordan hasn’t struck oil yet. Unlike its neighbors, the country deals with a high rate of poverty and unemployment. Christians make up 2% of the population there, similar to other countries in which Islam is the official religion. Despite the discouragements, the small Christian church is growing, drawing Christians from other countries there. Awana Jordan supports the Christian church there by reaching kids with the incredible news of the gospel, equipping leaders with discipleship, courage, and proven training methods, and changing the lives of many who wonder if life can provide something more.  

Reaching Kids in Jordan
There are almost three million children in Jordan today under the age of 15, the time of life when they will be most open and receptive to the message of the gospel. These children desperately need to know the eternal love and hope that only a life in Christ provides. Awana Jordan is able to come alongside through local churches in ways foreign organizations cannot. Since the first club began there in 1995, the gospel of Christ has shown each child in Awana that he or she is precious to God and created especially by Him!

Every week, Awana Jordan reaches 169 children with the gospel in their heart language through 2 clubs.

Equipping Leaders in Jordan
Awana is a proven program for reaching kids with the gospel. But it disciples the rest of the church through equipping the Awana club leaders, a need particularly felt in Jordan’s evangelical church. The pressure on Christians to convert to Islam is high. Many Christians emigrate from Jordan in search of a more peaceful existence, leaving the church without mature and trained leadership. To cope with that, each Awana program is built upon leadership that is trained to reach children, like those who use our Leader-Based Strategy (LBS) curriculum.

National missionaries, who understand the complexity of their countries, assist the churches which use the Awana program.

Changing the World in Jordan
Other countries are not like the U.S., where kids have an array of choices for activities. When a church starts the Awana program, children have a meaningful and fun place to go as they learn about the gospel. Adults are discipled and trained to make more disciples. Awana seeks to reach more children in Jordan with the gospel and equip more leaders there.
