San Estevan del Rey Mission Church is a Spanish mission church that was founded in 1629 at Acoma Pueblo — in present day Acoma, New Mexico. It was named for Saint Stephen I of Hungary.

The large adobe mission, first built in circa 1641, was part of colonial New Spain establishing a northern presence in Santa Fe de Nuevo México province.

The Mission Church was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1970,[1][3] and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
