The acronym comes from 2 Timothy 2:15 and stands for: Approved Workman Are Not Ashamed
Awana uses a method of Resilient Child Discipleship Resilient Child Discipleship
The process of a Christ follower committing meaningful, intentional, and consistent time and space to a child or a group of children so that they may know who Jesus is and are known by a body of believers (Belong), to place their faith in Jesus and apply the Word of God (Believe), and to reproduce their own discipleship (Become) so that a third spiritual generation can lead and love like Jesus Christ.
