Ministry Need

If you have desire to build the local church through children's ministry, then this is the opportunity for you.  Awana in Arkansas and Louisiana is looking for interns who desire to train more leaders to reach children and youth with the message of Christ and place them on a path of long-term discipleship that will grow them into people who will follow Jesus Christ and make an impact for Him for a lifetime.  You will have multiple opportunities to learn and grow in your ability to train leaders who will continue to impact children and youth in their communities long after your internship is over.  The local church is the focus of this internship - with a specialization in children's ministry.

  • Train church leaders in the Awana ministry, giving the church an avenue to disciple children for a lifetime.

  • Lead seminars, growing in your ability to present and lead leaders who are looking to grow in their ability to reach children.
  • Provide essential behind-the-scenes assistance to the missionary team as they plan and prepare for the events over the course of the internship and in the future.

Housing and Food: You will be living with the missionary team and volunteers, who will provide you all necessary accommodations and food.

Transportation:The missionary team and volunteers will provide you with the necessary ground transport for your ministry assignments.  Airfare to and from training and your internship start and end point will be covered by your fundraising effort.
