When you think of Indonesia, think of the fields being white for harvest. With the sheer number of children here—more than 66 million!—there are many opportunities for Christian ministries to take root and spread the gospel to people who are desperately in need of the hope it can bring. Awana Indonesia can help; it 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 Indonesia
There are 66.5 million children in Indonesia today under the age of 15, the time of life when they will be most open and receptive to the message of the gospel. Many are at risk of abuse. Nearly three million are child laborers, and every year thousands of others are trafficked. These children desperately need to know the love and hope that only a life in Christ provides. Since the first club began there in 1990, 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 Indonesia reaches 32,644 children with the gospel in their heart languages through 453 clubs.
Equipping Leaders in Indonesia
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. 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 Indonesia, there are six missionaries or missionary couples and an associate missionary serving the churches with Awana clubs. They help the churches to implement the program and train the leaders.
Changing the World in Indonesia
What a powerful combination for the people of Indonesia 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.
