Pastor’s Scholarship

studyingMaranatha is thankful for the many students who come from godly pastors’, evangelists’, or missionaries’ homes. We also understand that often, the ministry can be financially difficult, but we believe God provides through a number of different means when He wants a student at Maranatha. One such means is the Pastor’s Scholarship.


The potential $6,000 scholarship (up to $1,500 per year for four years) is intended for those students whose father is a full-time fundamental Baptist pastor, pastoral staff member, evangelist, missionary, or Christian camp director.
