Volunteer Programs

McCurdy Ministries looks forward to welcoming teams for our mission season (mid-February until mid-November) and to serving in ministry together!

McCurdy Ministries Community Center loves welcoming individual and volunteer teams to our campus. To learn more about our volunteer programs, see the short overview below or go to the Volunteer tab to download the handbook for each program. To learn more about our current volunteer activity (either before or after your time at McCurdy), please be sure to sign up for our Volunteer Blast Newsletter by emailing eromero@mccurdy.org.

To schedule a time to volunteer at McCurdy or to ask questions please contact Eufemia Romero, volunteer registrar, at 505-753-7221 or email her at eromero@mccurdy.org.

There are three different categories of persons who volunteer at McCurdy. For complete information about all of our volunteer opportunities, please go to the Volunteer Tab.

  1. Long term individual volunteers are volunteers who stay on campus for two weeks to a year. These volunteers become auxiliary staff and we love to welcome our individual volunteers back year after year. We even have some snowbirds who come south to McCurdy to spend the winter. They are truly a blessing to our MMCC staff and students. Individual volunteers must be Safe Sanctuary certified and volunteer 30 hours a week. Individual volunteers stay in our retreat center at no cost. Individual volunteers work in many aspects of our ministries, from maintenance and administration to helping with our after school program and/or summer camp program students. There also are some opportunities to serve as a Dorm Host. We are very grateful for the incredible difference our individual volunteers make at McCurdy!

  1. Volunteer in Mission Teams (VIM) and Emergency Response Teams come to McCurdy usually for a week at a time as a means of making God’s difference in our community. Volunteers help in classrooms with maintenance, construction, administration, and office work or in classrooms with programming. We have tasks for every ability, energy level and interest, and as we update our campus, our volunteers will be even more critical to our ministries. Most importantly, we deeply appreciate the love of Christ our volunteers share with our students, staff, and community every day.
    All volunteer team members must be Safe Sanctuary certified. One of our VIM Team leaders says that McCurdy provides VIM Team LIGHT experiences because you have your own bed in your own room, share a bathroom with one other room and aren’t sleeping on the floor. For those looking for a less arduous VIM experience who want to enjoy Northern New Mexico, McCurdy is for you. Thank you to our VIM Teams and Leaders. We couldn’t do our ministries without your support in administration, maintenance, and programs!

  1. We also appreciate our Local Volunteers who come for a day or afternoon of volunteering or a couple of hours every week or month. Local volunteers are not required to be Safe Sanctuary Trained if you are not working with children. Our local volunteers are special groups that help us with ongoing program needs and special events. We are so very thankful for their support!
