Dave and Joyce Kinsey grew up in the Chicagoland area. Saved in Awana Clubs at a young age, Joyce has had many years of experience as a clubber, LIT, leader and director.
With a degree in Christian education, Dave learned about Awana while serving on the staff of a local church. Eventually, Dave and Joyce served as area co-ordinators in Western New York before moving to Ontario to work full-time as Awana missionaries.
God has used the Kinseys' many experiences to prepare them for their present ministry. Dave and Joyce have served as Awana missionaries since 1982. They have four grown children and make their home in Powassan, near North Bay, Ontario.
Both Dave and Joyce are well versed in the Awana program. They are available to counsel with church leaders regarding their youth ministry, and to present the Awana ministry to boards, committees, and congregations. They are also ready to conduct leadership training, operate area AwanaGames and Sparks-a-Ramas, and speak at your special events, such as award presentations, banquets, church services, and missions conferences. Please feel free to contact them directly.
