“Verse-a-Thon will be the best thing you do in club…ever! The magnitude of what kids do in Verse-a-Thon will be with them forever.” - Janet Schweizerhof, MT

< back to Fundraising Main


Children ask family and friends to sponsor them for reciting Bible verses during the Verse-a-Thon event.

Verse-a-Thon empowers kids to actively participate in the Great Commission in your community and around the world.

Every $10 reaches a child with the gospel and engages them in lifelong discipleship by fully trained Awana leaders.

What others are saying about Verse-a-Thon

“I stand amazed at how God used the small amount of prep work leading up to our Verse-a-Thon, and how He multiplied that to reach so many more kids than our club ever thought was possible!”

– Jen, Taylor Creek Church, WA

“Verse-a-Thon was the most memorable part of our GO experience. It was truly emotional to watch the kids sit and recite verse, after verse, after verse. But even more moving to watch was the extra adults we had pulled in for that night who sat with their mouths wide open in disbelief. It changed the hearts of many who had never been a part of Awana before.”

– June, Salem Baptist Church, GA
