Current Projects

Builders Club

Builder’s Club Project October 2021 | Treadmill

 One of the most widely used piece of athletic equipment is the treadmill. It is used daily by athletes, non-athletes, faculty, and staff at Maranatha! As usage continues to increase as more and more people are committed to their physical fitness and overall health, the life of each piece of equipment diminishes. The need is for an additional commercial level machine.

 We currently have two treadmills and need to purchase an additional model for continued student use.

 Our goal for this project is $3000. Your continued support and giving benefits the student-athletes, as well as the entire campus population. Thank you!

 In HIS service,

Athletic Club Project: October 2021-January 2022
NCAA Softball Bat Tester | $950

Thank you to all who have faithfully contributed to the Athletic Club. Your contributions have enabled us to purchase much needed equipment and to provide for the “extras” in support of the student-athletes and coaches of Maranatha Baptist University in areas that go beyond the current funding allocations.

Recent support has provided funds to help with the purchase of video equipment for the softball and volleyball teams, and a bat tester for the baseball team. This equipment will aid the teams in their ability to provide game analysis on performance and processes, resulting in adjustments to training, implementation of advanced systems of play, and the development of our student-athletes. Additionally, recent funds have been used purchase customized outdoor tents.

The project for October-January is to provide a “bat tester” for the softball team for the Spring 2022 season. The tester will register the compression of a bat used for games. The NCAA has delayed the implementation of the bat tester due to COVID-19, but as of January 1, 2022 it will be required for every team to test every bat for every game.

The current project goal is $950.

On behalf of the student-athletes of Maranatha, we thank you for your support through the Athletic Club.

Fine Arts Club

 September-October 2021 | New Camera for Humanities

As I write this, summer is winding down and we are making preparations for the 2021-2022 school year. We have lots of exciting things planned including guest recitals, three Music on Mondays concerts, student senior recitals, and an arranging showcase.

Thank you for your faithful support for the Fine Arts Club. We will be purchasing the black Wenger chairs from last month’s project for our recital hall very shortly. We could not have done that without your help.

 This month’s project will be introduced by Angela Morris, chair of the Humanities Department.

Give our photography students high caliber hands-on experience as they build and improve their skill sets through the Fine Arts Club September project. Enable students to gain knowledge, grow in experience, and garner a strong portfolio.

The chosen camera brings with it state of the art technology and significant upgrades. It has the capacity to capture ultra-high-resolution images suitable for large-scale printing and extensive, creative cropping. The camera features advanced video capability and a Time Lapse movie function.

Access to this superlative camera will be a huge blessing to the Humanities Department!

Cost: $1500.00

The Lord Bless you.
