Founded by the Northwest Texas and New Mexico Annual Conferences in 1923, McMurry University continually strives to maintain and enrich its connection to the United Methodist Church.
The Office of Alumni Relations informs United Methodist churches about McMurry University, encourages support from our United Methodist constituency, and furthers the enrollment of United Methodist students. These students who receive a McMurry education are equipped to lead, serve, and understand the responsibility of being an educated Christian.
One way in which McMurry promotes itself within these regions is through the McMurry Ambassador Program. Each church in the New Mexico and Northwest Texas Annual Conferences elects a McMurry Ambassador to serve their local church on an annual basis. The Ambassador promotes McMurry through a variety of activities. The guiding objective of the program is to enhance the relationship of the University with the United Methodist Church as expressed in the strategic plan of McMurry University.
