Address-No.: 1352 / 4240

Mission work on the island of Sumba started in 1881 (cf. Gereja Kristen Sumba no. 21). In 1938 one of the GKN missionaries was suspended, but most Christians in East Sumba remained loyal to this person and seceded from the GKN mission. After World War II a relationship was established between these congr and the GKN(V).Conflicts in the Netherlands (within the GKN(V)) and on Sumba led to a new schism. In 1976 the relation between GKN(V) and part of the Sumbanese congr was consolidated, the latter taking the name GGRI. The church has an agricultural center and a theological seminary at Wai Marangu (Melolo). There are also congr on the island of Sawu and in the provincial capital, Kupang.
