Current Projects

Builders Club

January 2022 Builder’s Club: Old Main Faculty/Staff Workroom Carpet Tiles

The Old Main Faculty Workroom receives heavy traffic, especially during the academic year, with the copying of syllabi, course notes, testing, and other documents, as well as binding and sorting of projects.  The current floorcovering has worked well, but it must be replaced.

The January 2022 Builder’s Club project is to raise $1500 to replace this carpeting with carpet squares which will provide ease of maintenance and a means to replace damaged areas without having to replace the entire floor area. 

Thank you for your support of MBU and the Builder’s Club.  Your gifts, regardless of size, are a blessing to the faculty and students here at MBU.

Beneath the Cross,

Steve Board

Athletics Club

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

January-February Fine Arts Club: Fine Arts Hall Enhancements

At Maranatha, the Fine Arts Hall is used to help train our students as they prepare to use their talents in directing and acting. This month’s Fine Arts Club fundraiser will be used to enhance this area used by acting classes, drama classes, make-up classes, senior recitals, and Maranatha Academy plays. Funds raised will be spent to build new flats, repair the lighting system, and replace some “green room” furniture used by cast members. Would you consider donating to this area and help provide a quality training area for our students?

The MBU Spring play is The Miracle Worker (the story of Helen Keller) April 7-9. We know you would enjoy seeing it. Information on the play is only an email away: guestrelations@mbu.edu 

Thank you for your faithful support. Our last project was a conductor’s chair for Dr. Brown. We have ordered it, but like so many items, the shipping has been delayed. By the time you receive this letter, we should have it. 

May the Lord bless you exceedingly this new year.
