Guyana


A wonderful map of Guyana.

Guyana

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.

Background

Guyana is bordered by Suriname to the east, by Brazil to the south and southwest, by Venezuela to the west, and by the Atlantic Ocean to the north. Although Guyana is part of the Anglophone Caribbean, it is one of the few Caribbean countries that is not an island. The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) has its  headquarters in Guyana’s capital, Georgetown.

Religion

57% of the population is Christian, 28% Hindu, and 7% Muslim.

Stone-Campbell Presence

In the 1960s Jerry Browning and Delbert Bradley from Churches of Christ worked in Guyana. In 1980 the Spanish Fort Church of Christ in Alabama targeted this nation with World Bible School correspondence courses. Bennie and Kitty Mullins began the Guyana International Biblical Institute in 1985. Since 1980, over 98 congregations have been planted in Guyana. Partners in Progress and others do medical missions on a regular basis.

David and Eliza London, natives of Guyana, worked in the area of Nurney Village from the late 1960’s until 1986, supported by  Christian Churches/Churches of Christ.

The International Churches of Christ have a congregation in Georgetown.

The General Assembly Church of Christ, Disciples of Christ, International has a mission in Guyana.
