CHAPEL MESSAGES

Maranatha views chapel as an integral part of the educational process and requires students to attend chapel sessions on Monday through Friday. Students enjoy learning from Bible faculty and special speakers in chapel, which usually meets from 9:15 to 10:00 a.m. Society, student body, department, and workshop chapels also provide variety to the normal chapel schedule.

TRAVEL ITINERARIES

Musical ministry at Maranatha takes place on and off campus. Approximately 30 percent of our student body participates in Maranatha’s vocal/instrumental groups. Whether it be for a just a Sunday out or a week-long tour, our university’s music groups go on tour each year. The groups have the opportunity to see new places, meet new people, and enjoy the ministry of sharing Christ.
