God has given Maranatha a wonderful heritage.
The men and women who have graduated from MBU have gone on to serve the Lord in ministries around the world. We keep in contact with many of our more than 4,000 graduates and a number of other former students through our Advantage Magazine, The Arrow (our parent resource), and the Internet—via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and monthly emails like The Messenger. We invite you to send us an update on your life and ministry, so we can share your news in the next Advantage Magazine.
You may also join our alumni association, view our alumni directory, check out our alumni resources, attend one of our events, or give to the National Project. Also in this section is our career placement information.
Your membership donation will help provide for alumni gifts, alumni communications, Alumni of the Year awards, and alumni gatherings on campus and off.
Membership is available for any former student who attended at least two semesters! Blue and Gold memberships expire at the end of August and need to be renewed each year. Lifetime (Platinum) memberships never expire. If you have missed one or more years, you do not need to pay for those years in order to become an active member.
Visit our Alumni Association page for further information and to join our alumni family.

Join us on campus for some of our signature alumni events. Our favorite is Alumni Weekend. The annual gathering of graduates includes a Friday night dinner with special musical entertainment and recognition of the Alumni of the Year. On Saturday, many alumni enjoy the annual soccer and football scrimmages, whether as spectators or participants.
We were honored to present Alumni of the Year Preaching Ministry awards to two alumni couples. Alumni of the year awards were presented to Keith (’85) and Diane (Williams, ’84) Warren, as well as to Michael (’77) and June (Smith, ’78) Backhaus. The awards were presented during the Alumni Weekend Dinner in August.
Visit our Alumni Awards page for more information and to read the recipient bios.
Each year the Alumni Association adopts a national project to provide an addition to the campus of Maranatha. This year’s Alumni National Project, Ring the Bells, has two parts. We wish to fund an outdoor sound system to play Christian music outside around the main part of campus. We also wish to refurbish and display a large bell that belongs to the University. The total cost of the Ring the Bells project is $15,000. Please pray about participating in this year’s Alumni National Project.
