What's Included


Rio Lindo Adventist Academy is one of our many efforts based in North America. Each year, Maranatha works with organizations in the United States and Canada to provide volunteer labor for various construction or renovation projects. Rio Lindo Adventist Academy is located in Northern California about 60 miles north of San Francisco. It has 365 acres nestled in a bend of the Russian River. It’s about three and half miles off of Highway 101. The location makes for easy access and an ideal retreat for volunteers. Maranatha volunteers will be assisting with painting the outside of 30 staff houses and remodeling the boys and girls dormitory rooms.
