The Missionary

The Awana Missionary in the National Capital Region since 2004 is Bill Bianco.  The region consists of Montgomery, Prince George’s, Charles and St. Mary’s counties in Maryland; Fairfax, Prince William, Stafford and King George Counties in Virginia and Washington DC.

Bill is the father of two adult sons Nic and Noah.  His wife, Judi, of 31 years went to be with the Savior in September of 2016 after a two year battle with Ovarian Cancer.  He was born and raised in Ohio before moving to Bowie, Maryland, where he currently resides.  Before becoming an Awana Missionary, he served as an associate and senior pastor for 15 years in Leavittsburg, Ohio. He started an Awana Club in his church in 1997 where he  also served as the Awana Commander.  He also served on the Northern Ohio Awana Ministry Team for two years. God has shown Himself to Bill in so many wonderful ways during his time as a  Missionary with Awana Clubs International.

The Ministry

Ministry is not accomplished in a vacuum. Along with Ministry Team Members, Ministry Partners are a welcome asset as prayer and financial supporters. These faithful volunteers help change lives and make a difference for children, youth and families in  Maryland, Virginia and Washington DC. Their impact  is immeasurable . . . eternal.  If you are considering taking the next step in the  fulfilling ministry of working with young people at a regional level please contact Bill for more information.  Through the ministry of Awana here in the National Capital Region, boys and girls are blessed with the knowledge and the power of God, and many develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It is a gift that will last forever.

Funding is critical to accomplish the mission.   As stated, Ministry Partners are a blessing to help accomplish ministry goals in the region. If you have a passion for Awana and children’s ministry here in the National Capital Region and desire to share a portion of the abundance God has blessed you with, then consider being a Ministry Partner.   Any dollar amount is appropriate but a monthly donation of $50.00, $75.00, $100.00 or higher would be such a blessing to you.  If your preference is a special non-monthly gift it is also encouraged. Please go to the donate page for more information.
