10 Reasons We’re Thankful for Awana Leaders
November is the time of year when we all reflect on what we are thankful for in our lives. We ponder our gratitude for the family and friends we surround ourselves with, employment, our faith, and the abundance of food presented on our tables.
Awana likes to also take part in this pastime of reflection and giving thanks. We are thankful for many things, including the children that we reach with the gospel, the mission work being faithfully done internationally, and all of the partners working with us in children’s and youth ministry. We are also extremely grateful for Awana leaders, and here’s why:
1. You have a vision to engage your kids in a lifelong discipleship program.
2. You are partners with us in our vision and mission.
3. You pray with kids and know that no request is too small or too large for God to hear.
4. You are fun! You encourage and let each kid know they are special.
5. You see the value of investing in the spiritual lives of children. Beyond helping them memorize verses, you help them understand the Bible so that truth can change them and bring life!
6. You join God where He is working to help build His Kingdom.
7. You trust Awana to guide and direct you along the way.
8. You care deeply for the lost, their families and community, and encourage kids to invite friends to church.
9. You are creative and patient.
10. You join in conversations, listen, and give high fives.
From us at Awana to all of you who volunteer your time and energy to build relationships with the kids in your ministry, thank you.
As it says in Matthew 9:37-38: Then He said to the disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field.”
You are doing the work of the Lord by investing in His children so that they may come to know, love, and serve Him. Thank you for answering the call to work the harvest.
