Overview

Join Maranatha in the fascinating country of India! There is a great need for churches and schools throughout the entire country of India, and volunteers on this project will be able to help answer prayers.

The exact job scope of the project is still to be determined, but will most likely include the construction of One Day School classrooms. These classrooms are constructed with insulated panels. This type of construction involves a team that will peel protective sheeting off of the panels and prepare the edges as well as a team that will assemble the structure and attach the prepared panels. In addition, the group of volunteers will reach out into the local community to conduct outreach projects such as children’s ministry programs and health education.

The exact details of the project are still to be determined. To be notified when more information is available and registration is open, add your name to the interest list.

Travel Information

Volunteers will purchase their own plane tickets to India. The dates posted are the arrival and departure dates from the project, but due to travel time, you may need to leave a day or two before the arrival date. Maranatha representatives will meet volunteers upon arrival. Please wait for confirmation before purchasing your airfare to ensure that there is enough space on the project. More information including arrival and departure airports and time will be available in an information packet once registration is available. Booking outside these windows could result in additional fees and missed portions of the project. Maranatha may add an optional excursion to this project, which would extend the dates for participating volunteers.
