Overview

Maranatha’s annual teen-only project, the Ultimate Workout, is entering its 30th year, and we’re headed to Peru! Each year, high school aged teens from around the world join the Ultimate Workout and find opportunities to get out of their comfort zone, serve others, connect with Christ, and grow physically, socially, and spiritually.

This year we are expecting more than 150 volunteers to make a difference in communities outside of Lima, Peru. The exact job assignments are still to be finalized, but teen volunteers will have a chance to participate in church construction, children’s ministry, community outreach, and medical and dental clinics.

This project is Maranatha’s teen-only project. Maranatha provides all project leadership. In fact, adults are not allowed on the project unless they are leadership pre-selected by Maranatha.

More information will be available the first part of 2020. For now, add your name to the interest list and we’ll be sure to notify you as soon as registration is open.
