Start of Summer Ministry Team Training








Summer Ministry Team

At Maranatha, you may come to serve, but you will leave with something more valuable; community. Working at a non-ministry job can be very difficult and draining. It is hard to find like-minded people. Working on the Maranatha Ministry team, we invest in you. We cultivate leadership skills while living out what it means to be a part of something bigger. Working for the Kingdom is a treasure worth more than all the riches in the world. We desire to be a team who values Christ over currency. People who want more in their life than just “good” or “acceptable”. Good is the enemy of great. We strive to be great for the Kingdom while giving biblical truths to stand firm in your faith. Are you ready to be great?
