SOF stands for 'Step of Faith'.

Through this program, children, teens, and young adults are trained as 'Special Forces', to develop excellence in faith. 'Awana SOF Training Center' desires for all trainees to take a "step of faith" forward in their spiritual journey through these training programs. 

One of Awana Korea's 4 Visions for 2018 is to establish the Asia Center for ministry, to meet the needs of the global era. To meet this goal of training the next faithful generation, SOF training center was established.

Through the gospel of Christ, SOF wants to challenge this generation to become believers whose lives are based on Biblical standards, develop them into leaders of the faith who have a Biblical worldview, and equip them with the linguistic skills necessary for international ministry.
