Meet Art Rorheim

Reaching Kids for Christ!

You are celebrating your 95th birthday. You co-founded a ministry in 1950 that currently reaches over 2 million children each week around the world. You have led countless children and adults to Jesus Christ. Got the picture? Now, while you are at your birthday celebration, you challenge the attendees with this simple question. In four words or less, what is your primary goal?

Consider your answer? So what did you come up with?

If you are Art Rorheim, your answer in two words is this: "MORE KIDS... Let's reach MORE KIDS for Christ!" That is Art. It's about reaching MORE KIDS for Christ!!

Well that challenge wasn't just left behind at the celebration. Awana has rekindled its prayer statement that all children and youth throughout the world will come to know, love, and serve the Lord Jesus Christ. It is coming across in our curriculum, training, and fresh recommitted attitudes of why we are doing what we are doing.more...

Your Mission should you choose to accept it...

One of the key principles of Awana is that it is based on strong leadership. It is likely time for a Basic Training update...
