Colombia Flag

Since September 1, 2009, the Church of the Nazarene's Global Ministry Center (GMC) proudly flies a flag each week of one of the many nations in which the denomination is present in ministry. Leaders were invited to send a national flag to be flown at the GMC alongside the flag of the United States*. The national flags rotate weekly, and photos of them raised are sent to the church leaders of that country.

This week: Colombia

The Church of the Nazarene officially entered Colombia in 1975.

Colombia had a population of 49,084,841 in 2020. That same year, Colombia reported 95 Churches of the Nazarene, 88 of which had been officially organized. Colombia has 23,621 total members.

Located on the South America Region, Colombia has one Phase 3 districts, two Phase 2 districts, and four Phase 1 districts. For more information about the South America Region, visit samnaz.org.

* = The weekly highlighted flag is raised on the middle of three poles in compliance with U.S. government protocols. It flies to the left of the GMC host-nation United States flag, which flies above the host-state flag of Kansas. The Christian flag flies on the third pole.

The Global Ministry Center is the mission and service hub of the Church of the Nazarene.
