Morocco

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

The Kingdom of Morocco is the most westerly of the North African countries. It is bordered to the east by Algeria. The capital is Rabat, and the largest city is Casablanca. Morocco claims the non-self governing territory of the Western Sahara as the “Southern Provinces”. Morocco annexed the territory in 1975 and a guerrilla war with indigenous forces was brought to a cease-fire in 1991.

Religion

99.9% Muslim. There may be as many as 8,000 Christians.

Stone-Campbell Presence

Juan Monroy (see the profile on Spain) was converted in Tangier in 1951 and immediately made other converts and began Churches of Christ. However, by the late 1970s there were no congregations in Morocco. However, local evangelists have established five small congregations as of 2004.
