Mexico

The largest Spanish-speaking country in the world, Mexico has increased opportunities for freedom of religion and church growth. Even the government relies upon the church for help with urban violence and drug usage. The evangelical church is steadily growing, but it needs solid Biblical materials for children and good training for leadership—two hallmarks of the Awana ministry. Awana exists in Mexico to reach kids with the incredible news of the gospel, equip leaders there with courage and proven training methods, and to change the lives of many who wonder if life can provide something more.  

Reaching Kids in Mexico
There are over 33 million children in Mexico today under the age of 15. Many are illiterate. They benefit from Awana program materials that are easy to read and accompanied by eye-catching visuals. Because of high unemployment, many children do not have fathers in the home as the men have sought work out of the country. In Mexico City alone, some estimates put the number of street children at 600,000. Women need their churches to help them in teaching and discipling their children. Awana Mexico is able to come alongside through local churches to help with these needs. Since the first club began there in 1985, 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 Mexico reaches 5,148 children with the gospel in their heart language through 107 clubs.

Equipping Leaders in Mexico
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 Mexico’s emerging evangelical church. 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.

In Mexico, there are two missionary couples and three coordinator couples serving the churches with Awana clubs. They help the churches to implement the program and train the leaders.

Changing the World in Mexico
Other countries are not like the U.S., where kids have an array of choices for activities. Children in Mexico may have few safe outlets for enjoyment. 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 Mexico with the gospel and equip more leaders there.
