Set in the heart of Pasadena in the historic district, Logos Church joined Awana Clubs International in March of 1998. For the past decade, Logos Awana has had the honor of serving so many precious children of God. With His abundant blessings and the support of all the leaders and parents, we’ve seen children grow up from being a Spark to becoming an adult Leader!
We currently offer Sparks (K-2nd Grade), Truth & Training (3rd-6th Grade), Trek and Journey (Jr. & Sr. High) at Logos Awana. We are not only open to the members of Logos Church but also to the local community.
Our vision is to equip and empower the next generation of Christians to face social and spiritual challenges of tomorrow while having tons of fun. Our mission is to chase after God’s own heart so that we would truly become approved workmen who are not ashamed.
What is Awana?
For nearly 60 years, Awana has been a leader in children’s ministry, helping churches and parents worldwide raise children and youth to know, love and serve Christ.
Based in the Chicago area, Awana is the only organization with fully integrated evangelism and discipleship programs for ages 2 to 18 that actively involve parents, church leaders and mentors. Each week, more than a million children and youth, 250,000 volunteers and 300-plus field staff take part in Awana in over 17,000 churches in the U.S. and internationally. Awana works with churches from nearly 100 different denominations. It began as a children’s program at the North Side Gospel Center in Chicago in 1941. Lance Latham, North Side’s senior pastor, collaborated with the church’s youth director,
Art Rorheim, to develop weekly clubs that would appeal to churched and unchurched kids, lead them to trust Christ for salvation and grow them in enduring faith and service to God. Other churches learned about the success of the program and inquired about its availability. In 1950, Latham and Rorheim founded Awana as a parachurch organization. By 1960, 900 churches had started Awana programs. By 1972 Awana had begun its first international club. Today children and youth in more than 100 countries participate in Awana programs, and millions of adults are alumni.
The founders of Awana derived the Awana name from the first letters of Approved workmen are not ashamed as taken from 2 Timothy 2:15 of the Bible.
Today, 12,000 U.S. churches run Awana with programs in all 50 states. Awana can also be found in over 5,100 churches in 109 other countries and six continents. Jack Eggar is our President/CEO. Art Rorheim serves as our Co-Founder.
