Dominican Republic

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: Dominican Republic

The Church of the Nazarene officially entered the Dominican Republic in 1974.

The Dominican Republic had a population of 10,738,958 in 2019. That same year, Dominican Republic reported 193 Churches of the Nazarene, 182 of which have been officially organized. The Dominican Republic has 17,914 total members.

Located on the Mesoamerica Region, the Dominican Republic has one Phase 3 district and four Phase 2 districts. For more information about the Mesoamerica Region, visit mesoamericaregion.org.

* = The weekly highlighted flag is raised in 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.
