World Convention is currently building a global reference for the  countries and territories where we know there are Christian – Churches of Christ – Disciples of Christ Congregations. Of the 193 United Nations States, the Stone-Campbell Movement exists in 174. This listing includes other nations and territories, numbering 194 countries where there is at least one representation of our churches.

Rather than waiting for comprehensive, complete information we are putting up the details we have available. If you can correct or add to this information, please contact the World Convention Office with details at gary@worldconvention.org.

Stone-Campbell Presence

Missionaries from the Community of Disciples of Christ from the Democratic Republic of the Congo planted churches in the Republic of the Congo (Congo-Brazzaville) in 1995, resulting in the Church of the Disciples of Christ of the Congo with 2000 members today.

International Churches of Christ have congregations in Brazzavile and Pointe Noire.
