I can learn and grow


In each of our programs you'll study under professors who challenge you, mentor you, and help you succeed. With your diploma in hand, you'll be ready to go, serve, and lead in a world that needs all you can give.


You'll find an atmosphere of faith and family on our campus—starting with our biblical worldview, daily chapel services, dorm discipleship groups, and continuing through community outreach and the local churches.


Expand your experience in life through the many opportunities that exist at MBU, in the Watertown community, through local churches, through internships on or off campus.

The mission of Maranatha is to develop leaders for ministry in the local church and the world “To the Praise of His Glory."

Students will explore and expand their talents and be taught how to use them for the Lord, effectively teaching them to say "I can" because of Christ.
