    History

    The first 45 members in Colombia were mostly North Americans who met in congregations in Cali and Bogotá. In May 1966, the first missionaries arrived. Five years later, 27 congregations were established in 10 cities.

    Church education for youth began in 1972. By 1976, 900 students were enrolled in educational programs to prepare them for future leadership positions. Colombia's first chapel for Sunday worship was built in Cali in 1975. In 1983, Church members united to help those affected by the earthquake in Popayán. Today, Church membership is nearly nineteen times that of 20 years ago.
