Missions / Missionaries
COVENANT CHURCHES are individual churches in the New Mexico Annual Conference supporting specific missionaries. Any church, no matter how big or small can participate in this ministry. A church pledges to support a United Methodist missionary with $5 per member per year contribution or $2,500 per church. This covenant must be renewed annually.
Missionaries assigned/related to a covenant relationship with New Mexico Annual Conference Churches are:

Young Adult Missionaries
We are excited that 29 young adults are beginning their training for mission service as US2s and mission interns. We ask that you hold them in prayer as they live in community over the next three weeks and prepare for two years of service in the US and around the world. Please save the date: Monday, August 12 at 11:30 a.m. (ET) when the young adult missionary commissioning will be webcast live at www.umcmission.org.
