The states of Illinois and Wisconsin stretch over 700 miles north and south along the eastern side of the upper Mississippi River. Geographically, they contain the forest, hills and bluffs of the Shawnee National Forest in Southern Illinois to the moraines, lakes and woods of Wisconsin. Spread in between is some of the most fertile farmland on earth, that when crops are harvested, provide food for people all over the world.
More beautiful than landscapes in the Lord’s eyes, are the 18.6 million people that make our two states home. Over 600 churches use the Awana ministry to share the Gospel with children, youth and their parents. Over 45,000 kids are being discipled every week through Awana in our region. By God's grace, and with His help, we hope to reach 100,000 kids by the year 2020. We look forward to seeing what God is going to do as we equip more leaders, to reach more kids, so they can change the world for Jesus!
