This is Art Rorheim, founder of Awana Clubs Intl. This man loves the Lord and knows how to have fun! I just spent four days with him and other friends at Awana Summit weekend in Denver, CO. This is a national competition where over 1,200 teens get together and test their acheivements in the area of scripture memory and athletics/teamwork. It is an extremely exciting weekend where friends reunite, life decisions are made, and God is glorified.
I was able to go with my good friend Dave Meyers, Director of Development at the New Tribes Missionary Training Center in Missouri. We spent the weekend representing New Tribes Mission and talking with teens and adults about tribal people who are still isolated from the reach of the gospel.
