Church Relations

McCurdy Ministries welcomes you and invites you to explore the many opportunities to serve God and God’s ministries at our 100 year old United Methodist ministry. We are a program of the United Methodist Women of the United Methodist Church and our Advance number is 581479.

In 2012, we celebrated the 100th anniversary of Mellie Perkins, a United Brethren deaconess, arriving in the Espanola Valley by train and starting the school at Verlarde. At that time McCurdy was the ONLY school in the valley. This year we remember Mellie and the thousands of other missionaries, teachers, staff members and volunteers who have worked sacrificially to keep our ministry strong and we are strong!

Rev. Diana Loomis, Director of Development and Church Relations  




Our Volunteers in Mission will continue to support the work of McCurdy Ministries and will continue to be an integral part of our ministry and mission.  If you are interested in coming to McCurdy as a volunteer with a team or as an individual please click on this link, which will take you to the Volunteers tab on our website for more information and for an application.  We host over 1,000 volunteers every year and greatly appreciate the difference they make in God’s name at McCurdy!

We also deeply appreciate all the United Methodist Churches that support use with their prayers, their presence, their gifts, their service and their witness to the difference McCurdy makes in God’s name!  The primary responsibility of McCurdy’s Office of Church Relations is to interpret the work of our mission to United Methodist churches, organizations and individuals. To get on our mailing list or ask a question about our ministries please email Diana Loomis or call at 505-723-7221, ext. 352.

To find out more about our Volunteers in Mission program please email Eufemia Romero, our volunteer manager, or call her at 505-753-7221, ext. 268. We are prepared to travel in order to share our ministry with your congregation, Sunday School class, UMW unit or mission conference. Just give us a call!

May God richly bless you as you have blessed McCurdy,

Rev. Diana Loomis, Director of Development and Church Relations
