cc301_logo_watchCommander College 301 is not for the faint-hearted. You will be challenged to evaluate what you have implemented from 101 and 201, things like — how well your directors and leaders share the gospel with clubbers; how well you have built relationships with your children’s or youth pastor; and, how stories using a vision statement have transformed your club and church. You will consider what kind of legacy God might be calling for your life during this season – to leave a spiritual heritage for your children and grandchildren, to expand God’s work in your church by raising up a co-commander, or to look beyond your Awana club and pursue a missionary or ministry team experience locally or in another part of the world.
