Typical for countries in the former Soviet Bloc, most Czech people consider themselves non-religious. However, small congregations, house churches and cell groups are emerging in new expressions of Christian faith. Awana Czech Republic can help traditional churches and newer, smaller groups alike. It supports the Czech churches by reaching kids with the incredible news of the gospel, equipping leaders with discipleship, courage, and proven training methods, and changing the lives of many who wonder if life can provide something more.
Reaching Kids in the Czech Republic
There are over 1.5 million children in the Czech Republic today under the age of 15, the time of life when they will be most open and receptive to the message of the gospel. Well educated, children here need the kind of Biblically solid, age-appropriate Christian materials Awana Czech Republic is able to provide. Along with program materials, mentorship is also a huge need that Awana Czech Republic helps to meet. It comes alongside local churches in ways foreign organizations cannot. Since the first club began there in 1999, 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 Czech Republic reaches 449 children with the gospel in their heart language through 19 clubs.
Equipping Leaders in the Czech Republic
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. 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 the Czech Republic, there is one missionary couple serving the churches with Awana clubs. They help the churches to implement the program and train the leaders.
Changing the World in Czech Republic
In Europe, people tend to see Christianity as “old” and uninteresting. Awana debunks those myths! 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 the Czech Republic with the gospel and equip more leaders there.
You can join Awana in changing the world!
