What's Included


The Castle Valley Academy (UT) Project, previously Daystar 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.

Castle Valley Academy is located on 320 acres off of I-70 in the beautiful canyon lands of northeast Utah, 20 miles east of Moab. This self-supporting school was established in 1970 to provide a boarding academy in the Nevada-Utah Conference. The purpose of the school is to provide a curriculum and campus life that enhances students’ opportunities to intimately know God and make Him known.

Volunteers on this project will assist with renovations taking place in the 5,000 square foot boys dorm. Projects include new flooring, painting, plumbing, electrical, siding, bathroom and kitchen cabinet remodeling, as well as some landscaping.

Please consider joining us on this project!
