What's Included


Blue Mountain Academy (PA) Project 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.

Blue Mountain Academy is a fully accredited Seventh-day Adventist boarding school for grades 9-12. This is Maranatha’s seventh year assisting Blue Mountain Academy with dorm renovations. We are almost finished and hope to complete the girls dorm, rooms this year. On this project, Maranatha volunteers will continue the renovations, including the installation of new flooring, closets and furniture.

Skilled workers and helpers welcomed! We hope you can join us!
