Volunteer Insurance

Explanation of Volunteer Travel Insurance

Updated February 2019

Maranatha mission projects are construction projects where people can get hurt. It is not possible for Maranatha to analyze everyone’s insurance policy to see whether his or her insurance is current and the coverage is in effect at the location of the project. The Maranatha Board of Directors decided that the safest route was to require everyone to purchase the insurance coverage through Maranatha’s carrier.

  • The policy that covers volunteers depends on project location and the residency of the volunteer. Both policies are primary with no deductible. As with all insurances, some exclusions apply.
  • For volunteers who are extending travel before or after a project, the insurance starts and ends on the advertised project dates, unless extended prior to the project through Maranatha.
  • Maranatha does not carry or maintain general medical health, workers’ compensation, or disability insurance coverage for volunteers.
  • Both policies also include a Travel Assistance Program.
