Six-Year Outcome Effects of Former Timothy-Award Recipients

From: Volume 7, Issue 1: Spring 2010, Experiential Learning Pages 52-69


We conducted 24 interviews in a phenomenological qualitative research study in as part of appraising the perceived residual outcomes of the AWANA program. Our sample consisted of individuals who were Timothy award recipients 6 years prior to the data collection. Two prominent themes were evidenced through analysis of the participantsâ?? transcripts. The first centered on the former Timothy recipientsâ?? cognitions concerning the people with whom they interacted during their AWANA experience. These related to the relationships they recalled from their AWANA days. The second theme focused on the memorization that was accomplished in order to receive the Timothy award. Overall, participants believe it was a worthwhile endeavor and profitable for their long-term spiritual development.
