Jeffrey Hunt, Director of Process and Delivery

I have many fond memories of my time in Awana as a kid. It gives me great joy to be working directly for the goal of seeing as many kids as possible have the opportunity I had: to hear the gospel clearly, to experience the joys of knowing His Word, and to be spurred on by a community to memorize more of the Word. What a blessing that here at Awana, I can glorify God not only by working with excellence, but also by participating in the Romans 10 sending of those with beautiful feet to preach the gospel.

Joel Fulkerson, Art Director, Elementary Ministry

The free coffee and the fact that I get to draw cartoons all day for Jesus are awesome. I do truly love that I get to work in my strengths to create products that are designed to disciple kids and fulfill the Great Commission.


Linda LeClaire, Mailroom

The exciting part of serving here, at Awana, is not only am I supporting the churches around the world with reaching kids for Christ, but I am able to minister and serve my fellow staff. The discipline of memorizing Scripture and engaging God's Word is rewarding and exciting. I always feel useful and loved.
