Maranatha Ministries is an umbrella organization that grew out of Maranatha Bible Camp. From time to time, fledgling ministries have sprouted and became part of Maranatha. Past examples were the Maranatha Book Room and Pastor Ivan Olsen sermons tape ministry.
Realizing that funding is always needed to meet ministry opportunities, the Maranatha Camp Foundation was incorporated in 1996. SportReach was began as a branch ministry in 2001. Out of the Box was an existing ministry for over ten years and then came under the MM umbrella in April 2010. Continuous Worship in October 2010 became the most recent addition to Maranatha Ministries.

SportReach Inc. began as a ministry in the US which partnered with local churches to do evangelistic outreaches to their neighborhoods. International ministry began in Peru and soon it became clear that the response for Gospel outreach was much greater internationally. In order to insure better follow-up for new believers, SportReach became an affiliate with e3 Ministry. There is still a close relationship including recruiting participants for the ministry which now concentrates on church planting trips. More…
“I just want to thank you and all of those who were behind the scenes of this wonderful food. From the preparing of the food, serving it, and cleaning up after it, all aspects are so wonderful. The time all of you must put into this is beyond thanks, for just another group of high school students. You are all truely amazing people. Thank you for all you do.”Jenna
“Thank you for the gracious way you planned and completed our visit to Maranatha. I wish you could have heard the many positive comments the ladies made on our way home! God bless you each day.”Marjorie
“Thank you Maranatha staff. You have a beautiful camp, we walked around at sunset and enjoyed your waterfront. Your directions were great and the sign on the door was much appreciated. Again, thank you for your hospitality.”Terry & Kathie
“The ‘little things’ at Maranatha are the ‘big things’ that have eternal kingdom impact. Trying to keep up with High School students for an entire weekend can be a challenge. Thanks for keeping the coffee flowing all weekend long and thanks for how clean the camp is kept. For our very important small group break-out time Saturday morning, we were going to meet in the gym, but other groups met in there…so we literally met in the boys bathroom/locker room. It was awesome! We sat on the benches and immediately dived into the questions and it turned out to be a great setting for the Holy Spirit to take all of us deeper with the Lord. Keep up the great work. Lord, please continue to use Maranatha for Your Glory!”Mike

We exist to train, equip, and encourage the next generation of worshipers to fan into flame a passion for the glory of God. Our desire is to come alongside churches and camps to train worship leaders and worship teams to have a biblical view of worship and to effectively lead people before a Holy God.
