Our Ministry

Possibly one of the most beautiful landscapes in the country, our area comprises the 35 counties that we call Central and Southwest Virginia, or simply "home".  It is here that we have been serving in Awana for over 25 years.
Wendy is originally from Illinois, where she grew up in Awana as the daughter of an Awana Missionary.  A true California surfer, Wally began working in Awana as a freshman in college. We both have served as leaders, directors, and commanders in various clubs and by fall, we will both have earned our Citation Awards.

Our Need

Already in our ministry, we have witnessed how tremendously God answers the petitions of those who faithfully support us with prayer.  We will always welcome new prayer supporters to our team knowing that through their ministry, ours is strengthened.  Part of what we ask prayer for is the opportunity to develop Ministry Teams so we will be able to reach all of the clubs in our area while starting new ones.  While we are raising our financial support, we know that God will provide and that He will meet our needs through the generous commitments of His people. If you feel called to support us please do so here
