Santiago Curling: MCA Administrator
Today, I minister in education because God has given me a passion for discipling young people. A child’s school years are the best time to deal with heart issues that determine the kind of adult he or she will become. As an administrator and teacher, I get to work with young people every day. What a privilege! While serving at MCA, I know that I have learned more than my students. God continues to change the hearts and lives of both students and staff. I thank God that He allows me to do this every day!
“I love that Christ is able to use me to help our students. Christ has been so gracious to me and to be able to serve Him in any way is a blessing. I love our students and enjoy being with them. What a joy it is to serve my God!”
Juan Curling: Director of Development
I attended MCA for 10 years and graduated in 1997. That fall, I began my education at Bob Jones University in Greenville, South Carolina. After I finished my first year of college, my brother Santiago and I returned home to find our mother bed-ridden. We were shocked and heartbroken to see that cancer had gone into overdrive throughout her body. My mother passed away on October 3, 1998. When Santiago and I took over the ministries of Missionary Evangelism, we were only 21 and 19 years old. Santiago took care of the educational side of the ministry, and I was in charge of the summer missions programs.
The following spring, I returned to Bob Jones University to continue my education. I met my wife, Rachel, in 2000. We were married on December 13, 2002, and I graduated in May, 2004. We moved to the Rio Grande Valley in 2005, and have been serving under Missionary Evangelism, Inc. since then.
I consider myself fortunate to work with the families and staff of Macedonian Christian Academy. It is hard to believe that God would allow me to be a part of this ministry. I realize that, apart from Him, I am incapable of accomplishing the goals set for me at MCA. I pray that, through God’s strength, I can help build His kingdom and accomplish His good work.

“My current rolls at MCA include music lessons, elementary choir, and event planning. There are few experiences more fulfilling than seeing the excitement on the faces of the children as they are performing for their parents and loved ones. It is an honor and a privilege to be used by God in developing young Christian leaders at MCA.”
