Faculty

Having a personal impact

Faculty members have been an important part of Maranatha since the college's opening in 1968. From its 27 original members, the faculty has grown steadily to accommodate the University's majors, minors, and graduate programs.

Maranatha students enjoy a low student-to-faculty ratio--1 to 14.7 in 2010-11. They also enjoy a valuable personal relationship with godly mentors who are committed to passing on biblical truth to the next generation of local church leaders.
