All Things New aired an exclusive interview Pastor Shawn Thornton conducted with Awana Clubs International CEO Valerie Bell on May 26, 2017.

Awana is a biblically based discipleship program that spans early childhood into the teenage years. The end goal is to create life-long followers of Christ. Awana reaches more than 3.7 million children across 47 thousand churches … in over a hundred different countries. 

Pastor Shawn attended an Awana Club when he was a child, and he’s so passionate about this ministry that he serves on the Awana Board of Directors.

In this interview with Pastor Shawn, Valerie Bell shares how the Awana ministry can go to places where missionaries cannot go. The ministry trains nationals who then take God’s Word into their hometowns to reach some of the poorest of the poor in the world.

Join Pastor Shawn for this compelling and inspiring testimony, demonstarting how Awana is answering Jesus’ call to reach the children of the world.
