Overview

Join Maranatha in the fascinating country of Kenya! There is a great need for churches and school in this eastern African country, and local church leadership have requested Maranatha’s assistance.

While the exact job scope is still to be determined, volunteers will build a new church, school classrooms, or a school dormitory. Stay tuned (and join the interest list) for more information. In addition to the construction aspect of the project, volunteers will also reach out into the local community through outreach projects. More information will be available shortly.
