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

In 1969 Dan Coker, Church of Christ missionary to Guatemala, came to Honduras and began a church in Tegucigalpa. In 2013 there were at least 200 congregations in the country with over 7000 members, as well as several schools and orphanages sponsored by Churches of Christ. Dr. Robert and Doris Clark in 1986 founded Predisan to do medical mission work in Honduras. Predisan provides primary healthcare to 21,730 people in the mountains east of Catacamas; provides the only school-based healthcare available to more than 2,000 children; and through CEREPA addiction center provides the most respected Christian, comprehensive, in-patient addiction treatment center in Honduras.
