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: Peru

The Church of the Nazarene officially entered Peru in 1914.

Peru had a population of 32,510,453 in 2019. That same year, Peru reported 992 Churches of the Nazarene, 802 of which had been officially organized. Peru has 71,567 total members.

Located on the South America Region, Peru has 10 Phase 3 districts, one Phase 2 district, and five 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.
