Maranatha is about changing lives. Our purpose is to glorify God by introducing people to Jesus as Savior, training them in Christian living, and sending them out to represent Christ to the world.

In the course of a year, we serve thousands of campers and guests in a Christ-centered environment we create. As a result, many will hear God speak and make decisions about salvation, discipleship and Christian service.

It takes an army to keep camp running! If you have a desire to change lives for Christ and to serve for the Glory of God, then check out the different job opportunities below and apply through our application.
