This listing includes other nations and territories, numbering 194 countries where there is at least one representation of our churches.

Churches of Christ entered Nepal in the 1980s. Due to the efforts of local ministers like Krishna Gopal of the Kamal Pokhari Church of Christ in Kathmandu, there are about 80 congregations today. Eternal Threads is a ministry that partners with a local organization to assist in their efforts to prevent human trafficking by providing funding for two manned anti-trafficking border units that are able to rescue as many as 200 girls a month.
