Maranatha Tours was founded by Richard S. Reilly and Michael S. Reilly to promote Christian group travel. Dick Reilly’s unique background as a missionary in India, director of a mission society for 16 years, pastor, evangelist and a Youth for Christ leader, brought unusual insight into the ways and means of successful group travel. Though Dick Reilly has passed on, his Christian philosophy used in establishing Maranatha Tours lives on.

Dick's son Michael, as President of Fellowship Tours for 16 years, managed one of the best tour operations for Christian group travel in the United States and has been President of Maranatha since its opening.

We are family owned and have his son, Greg "The Chef" Reilly as our General Director along with his Cooking Through the Bible, On the Road Eats, and Traveling Through the Bible Show.  His daughter Jennifer handling all of our operations.   You will be very pleased with our staff's professionalism and our concern for each detail.
