This site is dedicated to the Approved Workman Database (AWdb), a software program designed to meet the recordkeeping needs of Awana* clubs.

Why use the Approved Workman Database in your club?

Eternally significant opportunities abound as we minister to children in Awana clubs. Our ultimate goal is to help kids to know God and His Word and encourage their spiritual growth by learning and applying Scripture. Unfortunately, the myriad records we keep track of to help our clubs run smoothly can take a lot of time and energy and distract us from this important goal. Becoming more efficient with our recordkeeping allows us to invest more time and energy into the spiritual lives of the children we serve.

The Approved Workman Database helps club secretaries reduce their recordkeeping burden, and helps leaders spend more of their precious time in ministry to the children instead of completing paperwork. Use the links above to learn more about the program's functionality and read some of the testimonials we've received.

You're invited to download a free, fully-functional 30-day trial version of the Windows application and explore the comprehensive functionality and see for yourself how user-friendly the software is.

Are you interested in a web-based recordkeeping system?

We are pleased to report that our new web app is ready for production use. If you would like an opportunity for a hands-on demo let us know and we'll set that up for you. For more information click here.

Thank you for your interest and support of the Approved Workman Database project. We look forward to continuing our work and striving toward our common goal of reaching kids for Christ.
