Come share in the excitement of Maranatha through the Destination MBU Road Trip! Destination MBU, a cost-effective and time-efficient experience, offers high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors an opportunity to see college life first-hand. Over the course of the visit, Road Trip guests will live life as students of Maranatha without the academic responsibility.

Destination MBU will allow guests to see for themselves that MBU might be where God is leading them. Prospective students will find Maranatha to be a university which values the importance of a God-centered worldview in education and a high academic standard.

To reserve seats on the Destination MBU bus, please complete the registration below by November 18th. Upon completion of registration, you will receive a call from one of our Guest Relation Team members.
