Northside Baptist Church

Elkhart, Indiana




In 1967 the people at Northside wanted a way to teach the children more about Jesus Christ in a fun and different way and Awana was the answer.

There is a time for Bible stories, Bible verses to be memorized and game time. Awana's goal is to train others to serve Him and this is being done with clubbers being saved each year.

Awana Youth Ministries has launched a new 3 year middle school curriculum. This new program challenges students to wrestle with the three most important questions they're asking in middle school:

  • Who am I?
  • Why am I here?
  • Who's with me?

By allowing students to dive deep into the Scriptures and answer these questions for themselves we allow them to own their faith and discover what they actually believe.

We are very excited about the new Trek and can't wait to show it to you. If you have used Trek before, you will find the new Trek a welcomed update. If you have never used the Awana Middle School program with your church before, now is the perfect time to jump in.


Journey® establishes high school students as lifelong disciples through a deep study of God's Word, mobilizing them to live with godly perspective and evident faith. Four complete years' worth of material supports your 9th-12th grade high school ministry. Additional products, training materials, and awards are available.

Journey is a multi-year high school ministry curriculum with 4 main studies. Learn more about first three studies, Disciples with Josh Griffin, Advocates with Sean McDowell, and Witnesses, and get a sample lesson of each to see how the lessons can be adapted to fit your youth ministry.
