The primary goal of training at The Expositors Seminary (TES) is to teach, disciple, affirm, and boldly commission men of God whom He has called to shepherd His flock. This is accomplished by a combination of formal instruction in the classroom with a comprehensive mentorship program, which incorporates increasing levels of student involvement in the hands-on learning of practical ministry skills in the context of a local church. Maranatha Bible Church is one of several church campuses comprising TES, commissioning faithful men to ministry here and around the world.
Camp Ao-Wa-Kiya, Shelby, MI
Our mission is to provide Christ-Centered Camping that will enrich the lives of men, women, boys and girls mentally, physically and spiritually. This is accomplished by providing year round retreats and summer resident youth and family camps. “Ao-Wa-Kiya” means “Banded Together for a Purpose”. The camp organization is made up of churches in and around West Michigan. They have come together to see their students know Jesus Christ in a very real way. The members of supporting camp churches are given the opportunity to use their talents and gifts from God as they come together to minister in our all-volunteer, Christian youth camp. Thousands of volunteers have “banded together” for over 55 years and worked alongside others to give campers a Christ-centered camping experience.
