Hi! I am Bill Bianco. I have been an Awana Missionary since 2004 where I serve on the Central Atlantic Missionary team, specifically in the Greater Maryland region which is Central/Southern Maryland, the Maryland panhandle and Washington DC.
I was formerly married to my wife Judi for 31 years before she went to be with the Savior in September of 2016 after a two year battle with Ovarian Cancer. I have two adult sons Nic and Noah. I was born and raised in Ohio before moving to my current home in Bowie, Maryland. Before becoming an Awana Missionary, I served as an associate and senior pastor for 15 years in Leavittsburg, Ohio. We started an Awana Club in our church in 1997 and Bill served as the Commander and Judi served, first, as a Sparks leader and then as the JV Director. She also earned the Awana Timothy Award as a child. We both served on the Northern Ohio Awana Ministry Team for two years.
God has shown Himself to our family in so many wonderful ways as we have been obedient to the calling of Missionaries with Awana Clubs International. I am often humbled as I see how God worked and continues to work through me to share the Awana Ministry with churches in our area.
I can not do this ministry alone. Along with Ministry Team Members we need Ministry Partners to be prayer and financial supporters. You can change lives and make a difference for children, youth and families in the State of Maryland and Washington DC. The impact you can have is immeasurable . . . eternal. Through Awana, you can bless others with the knowledge and power of Christ, so that they may come to have a personal relationship with Him. It is a gift that will last forever.
To meet our budget I need to raise about an additional $2,000 a month. Any dollar amount is appreciated. We are looking for some to accept the challenge and support us at $100 a month.
