GMC Flags of the Nations: Aruba
Monday, June 11, 2012
Global Ministry Center
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: Aruba

The Church of the Nazarene officially entered Aruba in 2000.

Aruba had a population of 106,113 in 2011. That same year, Aruba reported one Church of the Nazarene, which had been officially organized. Aruba has 136 total members.

Aruba is part of the Suriname District, a Phase 1 district on the Mesoamerica Region.
