Guatemala 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: Guatemala

The Church of the Nazarene officially entered Guatemala in 1904.

Guatemala had a population of 17,581,472 in 2019. That same year, Guatemala reported 782 Churches of the Nazarene, 685 of which had been officially organized. Guatemala has 96,721 total members.

Located on the Mesoamerica Region, Guatemala has twelve Phase 3 districts and four Phase 2 districts. For more information about the Mesoamerica Region, visit mesoamericaregion.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.
