In this small island country off the coast of mainline China lives a people marked by Buddhism and contradicting folk religions. Typically the Taiwanese are closed to the gospel or simply include it as one of their many religions, thereby rendering it useless. However, recent efforts on the part of other Asian ministries have seen open doors. These ministries have worked together in a unified effort to bring Christ to the Taiwanese. Awana Taiwan can help in this; it supports the churches there 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 Taiwan
There are over three million children in Taiwan 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 international Awana club began in Taiwan in 2000, 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 Taiwan reaches 438 children with the gospel in their heart language through 12 clubs.
Equipping Leaders in Taiwan
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 Taiwan, there are two missionary couples serving the churches with Awana clubs. They help the churches to implement the program and train the leaders.
Changing the World in Taiwan
What a powerful combination Awana is for the people of Taiwan 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.
