Our Church Partners


Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship - Dallas, TX

"Awana has revolutionized our children's ministry. It has brought excitement, fun and spiritual growth not only to the kids who participate, but their families as well. I praise God for how Awana has impacted the African American community at OCBF."

-Dr. Tony Evans, Senior Pastor

Willow Creek Community Church - South Barrington, IL

After leading the children's ministry at Willow Creek for roughly 20 years, Pat Cimo, then the children's ministry director, was tired of watching kids who'd grown up in the church walk away from their faith as young adults. Pat knew they needed a change in their ministry philosophy and the programs they used to disciple kids. She and her team chose Awana because it unites the key elements of discipleship - biblical education, application and memorization - all wrapped in relationship.


Auditorio De La Fe - Miami, FL

Running the ministry bilingually on Friday nights and twice on Sunday, Auditorio de la Fe has implemented the Awana program with a distinctly Latino flair. By pairing a student discipleship program with opportunities for students to lead younger kids, Auditorio leverages Awana to not only reach their community, but to equip and deploy the next generation of Christian leaders.

Brown Baptist Church - South Haven, MS

Brown Baptist is a generous church with a heart for racial reconciliation. Senior Pastor Bartholomew Orr chose to start on Awana program 15 years ago, becuase he firmly believes in the power of Scripture to transform hearts and minds and set kids on a new trajectory for life.


The Rock - San Diego, CA

With a vision to reach the military families in their community, The Rock uses Awana as an outreach tool to minister to the kids and families of those who serve our country.
