Maranatha marching band recognized 20 years after historic walk.
Twenty years ago, the Maranatha Christian Academy marching band made history by playing and marching continuously for 52 miles.
Earlier this year, we shared about MCA graduate Anna Hoduski and her race across the country in support of equality for the unborn. She discovered her pro-life passion as a fifth grade student at Maranatha, and that passion has fueled Project If Life. With more than 1,700 miles run and 800 miles biked, Anna and her team are nearing the finish line. Their 15-month missions trip will culminate October 15, 2017, at the Lincoln Memorial, where they will share their message.
Project If Life launched July 23, 2016, in Kansas City. Anna, along with her sister Sarah-Marie, brother Nick and college friend Megan, ran from Kansas City to California. They shared the Gospel of Jesus Christ and advocated for the unborn every step of the way. Over the course of their journey, they have shared their pro-life message at 60 venues.
“Maranatha did not just teach their curriculum from a Christian worldview, but taught me the importance of possessing and developing a Christian worldview myself,” Anna says. Maranatha is not only an integral part of Anna’s life, but central for her family as well: all Hoduski children are MCA alumni, and Anna’s father Mr. Hoduski is a beloved Maranatha teacher.
Maranatha exists to educate, nurture and train students for Godliness and excellence, so they’re equipped to transform their world for Jesus Christ. Anna is just one example of our graduates who stand strong in their faith and boldly share their Biblical worldview. We’re proud of the example that so many graduates set for today’s students. Please join us in cheering for Project If Life as the team approaches the finish line!Read More

Did Carter Williams play too nice on ‘Survivor’?
…One “Survivor” moment had competitor (and “Facts of Life” star) Lisa Whelchel ruminating that if Jesus played the game, he’d play like Carter.
“That was a great quote,” says Williams, who attended Maranatha Christian Academy in Shawnee and a Christian college in Los Angeles. But “first of all, Jesus wouldn’t play ‘Survivor,’ and second of all, he wouldn’t play like me. But basically she was saying I’ve been nice, I haven’t lied, I gave up my food for everyone, I worked hard. That’s how I wanted to play the game, and it’s how a lot of ‘Survivor’ people would probably tell you not to play the game.”
Carter Williams, a 24-year-old Shawnee resident and one of the 18 castaways selected for “Survivor: Philippines,” has to remain mum when the inevitable questions are asked: Were you the sole survivor? Did you win the $1 million?
An ORU student died while on a mission in Romania.
20-year-old Alexis Nichole Brownlee had been in Medias, Romania, for nearly a month when she died on June 16th of a seizure.
She was doing mission work as part of her studies at Oral Roberts University.
Alexis was expected to graduate from ORU soon with a major in Theology and a minor in Spanish.
According to her father, Timothy Brownlee, Alexis was doing evangelical dramas in street fairs and teaching English to orphan children.
In fact, Mr. Brownlee told KTUL.com that Alexis had picked up Romanian so quickly that she was able to translate for her fellow mission workers.
“Few people ever accomplish exactly what they dream of, or are called to do,” Mr. Brownlee said. “Fewer still give the ultimate gift to the orphans she always wanted to serve and help. She died on the mission field giving her life away for others.”
Alexis was born in Merriam, Kansas, and graduated from Maranatha Christian Academy in Shawnee, Kansas, in 2009.
