Macau is the Las Vegas of the Asian world. The major hindrance to evangelism and breakthrough is the strength of the gambling industry, which has a reciprocal relationship with the government. As a result, corruption is intense as money changes hands. Thankfully, the Christian church is growing in Macau, in spite of all of the corruption, and ministering to those left empty from gambling addictions. Awana Macau can support the churches in multiple ways. It provides them with a way to teach kids the incredible news of the gospel, equip leaders with discipleship, courage, and proven training methods, and change the lives of many who wonder if life can provide something more.
Reaching Kids in Macau
There are over 80,000 children in Macau today under the age of 15, the time of life when they will be most open and receptive to the message of the gospel. The Awana program, with its high-quality materials and solid, Biblical message, is a powerful tool for churches to reach out cross-culturally to children of diverse backgrounds. And unlike mainland China, Macau enjoys religious freedom, so evangelism is not illegal. Since the first international Awana club began in Macau in 1984, 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 Macau reaches 66 children with the gospel through 3 clubs.
Equipping Leaders in Macau
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 with courage and joy in spreading the gospel. 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 Macau
What a powerful combination Awana is for the people of Macau and the rest of the Pacific Rim: solid, Biblical teaching for kids with trustworthy discipleship for adults. Many are coming to know the Lord and be discipled in a progressive manner through the Awana program. It’s a program that works across many demographics and denominations. Together, this combination can change the world within a church, a community, and a country.
