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: Nigeria

The Church of the Nazarene officially entered Nigeria in 1977.

Nigeria had a population of 200,963,599 in 2019. That same year, Nigeria reported 71 Churches of the Nazarene, 49 of which had been officially organized. Nigeria has 12,549 total members.

Located on the Africa Region, Nigeria has one Phase 3 district and one Phase 2 district. For more information about the Africa Region, visit africanazarene.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.
