GMC Flags of the Nations: Nicaragua
Tuesday, March 11, 2014
Global Ministry Center
Since September 1, 2009, each week the Church of the Nazarene's Global Ministry Center (GMC) proudly flies a flag 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: Nicaragua

The Church of the Nazarene officially entered Nicaragua in 1937.

Nicaragua had a population of 5,788,531 in 2013. That same year, Nicaragua reported 189 Churches of the Nazarene, 182 of which had been officially organized. Nicaragua has 15,240 total members.

Nicaragua has two Phase 3 districts, one Phase 2 district, and one Phase 1 district. It is a part of the Mesoamerica Region.
