Crossway and Awana Announce New Alliance: Awana to Release ESV Bible Curriculum

Crossway is pleased to announce a new partnership with Awana that seeks to extend the reach of the gospel of Jesus Christ to young people throughout the world. Awana will begin to make its core Awana Clubs and Awana Youth Ministry curriculum available in the ESV (English Standard Version) Bible by the fall of 2013.

Awana President Jack Eggar says, “Our two ministries have a mutually strong history and passion to reach the world with the good news of Jesus Christ, while also equipping local churches. By making our curriculum available with the ESV Bible, we are committed to expanding our opportunities to serve and connect with churches across denominational lines.”

Awana is a not-for-profit ministry that helps churches and parents raise children and youth to know, love, and serve Christ. Each week, nearly two million kids take part in Awana worldwide. “We believe our Awana alliance will help a whole new generation of young people learn and love the truth of God’s Word,” says Dr. Lane Dennis, Crossway president and Bible publisher.
