With an impact far greater than its size, Hong Kong generates much good from its Christian believers. Despite its fairly low Christian percentage, those Christians are noted for building hospitals and schools and being involved in government. Beyond its borders, Hong Kong sends out many Christian missionaries and functions as a ministry hub to the rest of the Chinese-speaking world. Awana Hong Kong supports the churches by teaching kids 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 Hong Kong
There are close to one million children in Hong Kong today under the age of 15, the time of life when they will be most open and receptive to the message of the gospel. It’s a perfect time for them to be mentored through a solid Biblical program like Awana. Since the first club began there in 1996, 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 Hong Kong reaches 5,562 children with the gospel in their heart language through 87 clubs.
Equipping Leaders in Hong Kong
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 with courage and joy in spreading the gospel. One of Awana’s specialties, leadership training is one of the highest needs in the Hong Kong church. 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 Hong Kong, there is one missionary serving the churches with Awana clubs. She helps the churches to implement the program and train the leaders.
Changing the World in Hong Kong
What a powerful combination Awana is for the people of Hong Kong and the rest of the Pacific Rim: solid, Biblical teaching for kids with trustworthy discipleship for adults. Many are coming to know the Lord and be discipled in a progressive manner through the Awana program. It’s a program that works across many demographics and denominations. Together, this combination can change the world within a church, a community, and a country.
