Flags of the Nations: Paraguay

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: Paraguay

The Church of the Nazarene officially entered Paraguay in 1980.

Paraguay had a population of 7,044,636 in 2018. That same year, Paraguay reported 36 Churches of the Nazarene, 26 of which had been officially organized. Paraguay has 1,232 total members.

Located on the South America Region, Paraguay has three 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.
