The roots of Moravian ministry in Cuba go back to the late 1990s when Rev. Robert Sawyer (then Southern Province Provincial President) received a letter from a small group of brothers and sisters in Cuba, asking if they could “be Moravians!” Eventually, the group was designated as a Mission Area of the Moravian Church under the supervision of the Moravian Church in Jamaica and the Cayman Islands. It is now a Mission Province of the Moravian Church and is accompanied by the Southern Province in America and the Board of World Mission.
On January 11, 2013, the Cuban government gave full legal recognition to the Moravian Church in Cuba. This was a very important and significant step for the Church and they consider January 11, 2013 to be their official founding date.
There are now Moravian congregations and fellowships located in the Cuban provinces of La Habana, Matanzas, Villa Clara, Camagüey, and Guantánamo.
