MBU friends and alumni around the world
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 communications, alumni gifts, alumni gatherings on campus and at regional locations, and receptions at Christian education conventions. The Alumni Association fund also provides the Alumni of the Year awards.
Membership is now 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. Platinum (lifetime) 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.
This year we are honored to recognize Dr. Robert Lehn (’75) as the Preaching Ministry Alumni of the Year and Richard (’82) and Marlene (Mayo, ’83) Post as the Christian Ministry Alumni of the Year.
Dr. Lehn and his wife Kay planted Westside Baptist Church in Augusta, GA 30 years ago. They are still serving there while Dr. Lehn is the secretary for the Board of Trustees for Baptist World Mission and the baseball Chapel Leader for the San Francisco Giants. Dr. and Mrs. Lehn have 3 children and 2 grandchildren.
Richard and Marlene Post are currently serving the Lord in Mechanicsburg, PA at Emmanuel Baptist Christian Academy. Rich has been teaching for 31 years and is teaching high school mathematics, Bible, and anything else that comes along with each new year’s schedule. Marlene is the bookkeeper for both the church and the school. Rich and Marlene both serve in many different capacites at Emmanuel Baptist Church, and they have been blessed with 4 children.
Two alumni awards are given to alumni regularly recognizing those who have served with distinction in ministry and those who have shown character and outstanding ability on the athletic field.

Help us finish our new handicap-accessible restrooms on Old Main’s first floor. Steve Board, who teaches in our Business Department and is the Director of Development, has an architectural degree. He has identified space to add easily accessible public restrooms near Old Main’s west entrance.
The project goal is $30,000. This will provide for the needed structural changes, fixtures, tradesmen’s labor, and finishing work. Although this is not a glamorous project, no one can dispute that it is a necessary one. Hundreds of people visit Old Main daily; the convenience of first floor restrooms will be greatly appreciated.
