John & Mirjam Curry
We are the Curry family: John, Mirjam, Elea, & Finley. Our family has been living and serving in Germany since 2017. For the first five years we were living and working in Wüstenrot alongside a church there. In August of 2022 we moved to Southern Germany close to the France/Swiss border.
John grew up in the area of Omaha, Nebraska and Mirjam in southern Germany. We met in 2004 at a church camp while Mirjam was a foreign exchange student in Clay Center, Nebraska. John studied pastoral ministries at Nebraska Christian college from 2005-2009. Mirjam moved to the U.S in 2008 and got her associates degree in photography from Metro Community College. We got married in 2009. In 2010 John and Mirjam moved to Salt Lake City, Utah where John worked primarily as a youth minister, and where Elea and Finley were born.
In 2017 we felt God calling us to go to Germany as missionaries. John had taken a trip to Germany with KontaktMission in 2007 during his time at Bible College, and we decided to become full time KM Missionaries.

Germany: The poster-child of post-Christian
Although Germany is known as the birthplace of the Protestant Reformation, it is a country in need of the Gospel. Germany is what many would refer to as "post-Christian".
The German news channel Deutsche-Welle has reported record numbers of Germans leaving the Lutheran and Catholic state churches over the last three years. Deutsche-Welle also reports that out of those who do still belong to the church, extremely few actually attend services. Only 4.3% of Catholics report going to church most sundays. Germany needs Jesus.
We seek to build the Kingdom of God here in Germany by:
1. supporting and strengthening existing churches in their minitries.
2. equipping and assisting churches in church planting.
3. equipping churches and existing ministries to serve their communities.
4. making disciples of Jesus through personal relationships.
In all of the work that we do, our ultimate goal is to make disciples of Jesus. We believe that achieving this goal will also lead to future church plants and reform in the community.
Support our ministry
It is no secret that from the very beginning of the church Christians have taken an active role in being missionaries and sending missionaries. Yet not all are called to be missionaries. (We are all called to make disciples)
Being a missionary is a calling, but have you ever considered that sending missionaries is also a calling? So what is your calling? Are you the missionary or a missionary sender?
All Kontaktmission staff live on support, meaning we believe that God will provide for his mission, through his church.
Please consider joining our sending team by partnering with us in prayer and partnering with us financially.
1. Please pray for God to connect us with further partners in ministry.
2. Please pray for opportunities to share our faith.
3. We are expecting our third child this fall. Please pray for our family as we enter into this new season of life.
