Welcome to Navajo Ministries
Navajo Ministries was founded in 1953 with a single children’s home to care for disadvantaged Navajo children. Today, Navajo Ministries operates four programs on our beautiful 16-acre campus in Farmington, New Mexico. Those programs include the Four Corners Home for Children, the Navajo Ministries School, KNMI Vertical Radio (FM 88.9) and Navajo Nation Outreach.

A Few Inches Can Make a BIG Difference
More than 40 anglers competed Aug. 21-22 in the San Juan River Bi-Fly Fishing Tournament to raise more than $55,000 for the Four Corners Home for Children, a program of Navajo Ministries Inc., during the 22nd annual San Juan River Bi-Fly Fishing Tournament.
The Bi-Fly Tournament, considered the premier trout-fishing event in the Southwest, raised just short of $1 million for the childcare program at Navajo Ministries since its first year in the mid-1990s. A large portion of the funds raised are generated by the anglers, who gather per-inch pledges for the largest fish they catch during the two-day, catch-and-release tournament.
