Let’s face it, AWANA is an awesome program for students ranging from kindergarden to six grade. However, if your like me, I have junior high and high school students that desire for the program to be over and on to something else. They are tired of doing their books, running around “the circle”, or even wearing the vest. It seems like junior high and high school students are a whole different ballgame when it comes to AWANA.
The truth is, they are.
AWANA finally “gets it”.
For the longest time I was looking for AWANA to reach out and create something “different” for junior high and high school students. A lot of times I get from people who are in small churches who are running an AWANA program for young people but the junior high and high school students always get left out due to their “peaking” in sixth grade. Since a lot of small churches can’t afford a youth pastor for the junior high and high school students so they are left scratching their heads on what to do with these teens.
AWANA has developed a program called “Who Me?” Who Me is a training product from 24-7 Ministries (the junior high and high school branch of AWANA) designed to help you develop a healthy youth ministry for Junior High and High School youth. If you don’t have a youth pastor currently at your church and you feel like the junior high and high school students have “peaked”, Who Me? is for you. The resource comes complete with a book, DVD, resource CD and access to online resources. The training package also includes online access to “All About Trek and Journey (AWANA programs for junior high and high school)” where you can get needed information about program specifics and awards, as well as how to use them in your church.
Note: Who, Me? is the first of three parts in the new line of 24-7 training resources. Preview Who Me?
