About Maranatha Ministries

camp maranatha baja california sur missionary

Welcome to Maranatha Ministries in Mexico! We are established and active in reaching out to support Christian congregations both in Baja California Sur and mainland Mexico. In turn we partner together with them in outreach to others. Jesus’ command was to go into all the world and make disciples, teaching and baptizing them in His name. This is the basis for all that we do.

Here you will find information about the different aspects of our outreach, our background, and our foundations in faith. 

Maranatha Ministries in Mexico is a not-for-profit organization based in the United States. It was formed in 2002 in order to support the activities of Maranatha Ministries south of the border.

Maranatha Ministries in Mexico focuses in three distinct areas:

1. Ministering to the Indigenous Cora People of the Mexican State of Nayarit

High in the remote Sierra Madre Mountains in the Mexican state of Nayarit are the villages of the Cora. In 1962, Cecil and Faye Byers landed their Cessna airplane on the high mountain meadow of Santa Teresa. Fast forward to today, and there are believers throughout many of the surrounding high mountain villages where the work of Cecil and Faye Byers continues to this day!

2. Subsidizing the operation of a Christian campground in Southern Baja

Campestre Maranatha, SA de CV, is Maranatha Ministry's sister charitable organization in Mexico.  A devoted team of staff members and volunteers enable Maranatha Ministries in Mexico to operate and grow.

Campestre Maranatha is a Christian campground located in La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico. As the only camp in the area, it is used by local churches, schools, and families for many different activities. It is also the base for Maranatha Ministries in Mexico.

3. Assisting Mexican Churches Grow and Flourish

Maranatha Ministries in Mexico supports churches that it has established. The organization takes the approach of “walking along beside,” in which it assists the churches that are typically pastored by someone from within the group. 

Please consider partnering with us in prayer or by giving to our cause. If you are one of the many who have been doing just that over the years, thank you! We hope you have been blessed as we have been by your support.
