Maranatha Shabiba Conference is a one of the most exciting and largest national Christ-centered gatherings of Christian young adults of predominantly Arab & Middle Eastern origin in North America.
Hundreds from around the USA, Canada and other parts of the world gather each year to worship, pray, hear the word of God, meet old & new friends, and have an amazing time; making Maranatha a popular conference & vacation destination for the young adults.
A unique cultural experience at the 4-day/3-night Maranatha conference helps bridge the gap between the 1st and 2nd generation of Middle Easterners.
Many programs and activities are offered at Maranatha Shabiba; including:
  • Worship, Messages, Prayers & Discussions,
  • Nightly Programs with games, talents and skits,
  • Bonfires (Nightly at the beach),
  • Sports Tournaments (Soccer, Volleyball, Basketball, Ping Pong & others),

The conference is held every year in September on the weekend after Labor Day at the breathtaking sandy beaches of Lake Michigan at the Maranatha Bible & Missionary Conference Center in Muskegon, Michigan, USA.
In 2015, Maranatha Shabiba hosted over 270 attendees.
