Maranatha students actively minister through local churches, ministry teams, and individual initiative. All students have the opportunity to serve in a local church, many in youth and music ministries. Societies also provide a vehicle for community service, outreach, and volunteer work. The Global Encounters program sends students around the world to spread the gospel every summer. Maranatha students also know they are a witness wherever they go--school, their workplace, or handing out tracts on a street corner. The University provides its students many opportunities for leadership, ministry, and winning others to Christ.
