Club Purpose

Development clubs move Maranatha departments forward by helping meet specific inter-departmental needs. Club members and other faithful donors have sacrificially given toward these projects for many years. We appreciate friends who have partnered with us to help in the Lord’s work.

Builders Club November – December 2022

Faculty and Staff Christmas Banquet

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government will be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6)

God provided His son that we might be redeemed and become His adopted children! Christmas provides an opportunity for us to reflect on this great gift provided by a loving Father.

As we reflect on God’s great gift, we recognize that giving to others who are dear to us is also a focus of the Christmas season. Please consider giving this year to the November/December Builder’s Club and make our annual Faculty/Staff Christmas Dinner a little more special.

This year has been a good year at MBU. We rejoice in those who have continued with us, and the marvelous ways that God has provided those individuals and families that we needed to continue the ministry here. Our faculty and staff have, and demonstrate, a great servant attitude and compassion for our students, and others, and we rejoice in how God has blessed each of these choice servants of His.

Maranatha experiences the Lord’s blessings as we continue our mission of “Developing leaders for ministry in the local church and the world ‘to the praise of His glory’”. We do this in part through wise stewardship and the generosity of others.

Each year we set aside the November/December Builder’s Club to recognize and thank our wonderful faculty and staff for the sacrifices they make for these students and our mission. This month’s Builders Club project is an appreciation gift that will help provide a very special Christmas dinner for all Maranatha employees and their spouses.

Gathering together at Christmas is a family tradition, and that is also true of the Maranatha family. Your gift will help provide a memorable evening of a wonderful meal, singing, lots of laughter, and praising the Lord for His great blessings to us. A generous gift to the November/December Builders Club project will show members of the Maranatha family they are appreciated.

Be assured that you are also deeply appreciated. Thank you for your Christian love and generosity.

Beneath the Cross,

Steve Board

Athletics Club

Athletic Club Project | November 2022 – February 2023
Athletic Event Staff Apparel| $1500

The Athletic Club project for November 2022-Feburary 2023 is to provide MBU/Sabercats branded wear for the Athletic Event Staff. This apparel will include indoor & outdoor shirts and jackets. Having a sharp, professional appearance promotes a positive, professional atmosphere to our own student-athletes, opponents, spectators, and live-stream audiences across all sporting events.   

The current project goal is $1500.

On behalf of the student-athletes of Maranatha, we thank you for your support through 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 Coever (flat) goals for soccer, lightweight volleyball poles for the FCG, basketball defender dummies, and bat testers for the softball and baseball teams.   

Go Sabercats! #Snarlstrong

Fine Arts Club November-December 2022

Reburshing Handbells | $3000

One of the hallmarks of Maranatha’s heritage is the Madrigal and Handbell Choir. Mrs. Cedarholm began this tradition, Dr. Budahl continued and expanded it, and now Dr. Brown has taken it to a new level. Many of you had the privilege of traveling with the Madrigal and Handbell choir under one of these three directors.

Like most things, handbells require periodic refurbishing. This summer, the Department of Music plans to refurbish the bells and thus carry on the long-standing handbell choir. The anticipated cost to refurbish roughly 48 bells is $3,000.

You can enable the next generation of Madrigal and Handbell Choir members to continue serving by contributing $65 to refurbish one bell.

God bless you,

David Ledgerwood



Whether it’s classrooms or character, the Builders Club maintains the tradition of building Maranatha. Members have supplied the university with technological upgrades, furniture, equipment, and office renovation.


The Athletics Club provides support to the mission of the athletic department and the overall needs of student-athletes. Members have provided the athletic department with training and weight room upgrades, conditioning equipment, coaching apparel, and statistical software.


The Fine Arts Club gathers donations for projects specific to the music and dramatic needs of the university. Members of the Fine Arts Club have presented the university with classroom and performance instruments, stage flooring, wireless microphones, and inventory software.


The impact of the club donations has been priceless in the lives of our students on campus. Athletic Club donations have provided new training and game equipment, Builders Club has provided much-needed renovations and upgrades to our campus facilities, and the Fine Arts Club has offered our students new instruments, teaching tools, and so much more.
