I have been fortunate enough to visit Awana Headquarters in Streamwood, IL three times. Even after being at HQ three times, I have not yet had the privilege of meeting and having a conversation with Art Rorheim.
For those who would like to have a conversation with Art but can’t make it to Awana HQ, or like me, your paths just haven’t crossed, Awana has provided a new book called Art Rorheim – Mr Awana which when you read it is like having a conversation with Art.
The description from the Awana Store On-line reads:
“Through personal stories and testimonies, Art shares many of the amazing moments in which he has seen God work in his life and in Awana. This collection of memories from our Co-Founder and President Emeritus is a treasure for all who serve in ministry.”
In the book Art shares memories, talks about the importance of people involved in Awana, gives practical advice for having an effective Awana ministry and more. So I encourage you to get the book, take some time and have a conversation with Art Rorheim.
When you order from Awana, tell them Commander Bill sent you (note I do not receive any compensation for promoting the book or from any sales made by Awana)
