Columbia Union Ministries and Services: Columbia Union Revolving Fund (CURF)
Thanks to the leadership of director H. Candace Nurse and her team, many churches, schools and ministries across the Columbia Union territory were able to obtain cost-effective financing to support their ministry endeavors. Through a CURF loan, Potomac Conference’s Seabrook church in Lanham, Md., is renovating their sanctuary, bathrooms and floor- ing throughout the facility.
During the last five years, CURF approved some 230 loans, totaling more than $115 million, and celebrated the 153 organizations that paid off their loans. Now in their 52nd year of minis- try, CURF has 291 active loans that are helping fund church and school construction and renovation plans in every conference of our union. During the pandemic, CURF made special efforts to accommodate churches with interest-only and deferment plans, enabling them to focus on immediate needs.
