McCurdy Ministries is 103 year old United Methodist National Mission Institution in Espanola, NM. For 100 years McCurdy was a mission school but in 2012 McCurdy Charter School opened on the McCurdy campus which is a public K-12 school and McCurdy Ministries became a community center whose purpose is to help students and their families in this community succeed in school and in life. McCurdy programs include preschool, after school, summer camp, mental health counseling, Volunteers in Mission and we are the breakfast and lunch provider for the charter school. We welcome hundreds of volunteers 12 years and older to our campus each year. Some volunteers work with the charter school and McCurdy Ministries' programs and others do painting, grounds work, office work and maintenance jobs. We have 40 acres and 40 buildings and so our volunteers are essential part of maintaining our campus and sharing the good news of God's love through our programs!
