The Big Picture Project | Alumni National Project

Introducing the 2014-15 Alumni National Project

This year’s Alumni National Project represents another rich opportunity to impact the lives of students, alumni, and community guests of Maranatha. The Big Picture Project will fund the purchase and installation of a large screen projection system and an enhanced sound system for the Dining Hall.

The Need 

Currently, the Dining Hall is the only large-group venue without a permanently-installed audio/video system, yet the space is used for many important gatherings, such as alumni and faculty/staff dinners, community business breakfasts, special banquets, student events sponsored by the Office of Student Activities, and business lecture series.

Meetings held in the Dining Hall are high-profile events that project an important image about Maranatha and what God is accomplishing on our campus. Utilizing temporary and inadequate audio-visual equipment simply sends the wrong message about our core values. Preparation goes unnoticed when a music ensemble cannot be heard. When a preacher or presenter cannot be heard or a presentation cannot be clearly viewed, an opportunity to touch lives is lost. The Big Picture Project facilitates bringing to life the powerful message of God’s Word and sharing the wonderful testimony of Maranatha.

The Goal | $20,000

Quality equipment and installation carries a price. As good stewards, the staff have carefully negotiated a fair and equitable price for the equipment. You can be assured that a balance of cost and quality has been reached and will result in a project that meets a worthwhile need and provides lasting service for many years.
