Among the victims are members of 21 denominations (the majority of victims were members of the Inter-American Church of Colombia, the Association of Evangelical Churches of the Caribbean (AIEC) and the Foursquare Church) and victims accompanied by the Mennonite Church of Colombia. In cases with individual victims, there were 17 homicides, including the cases of three pastors and two church leaders.
As in previous editions of A Prophetic Call, in 2009 the majority of homicide cases against Protestant and evangelical church members were attributed to paramilitary groups. This could be explained by the fact that the majority of documented cases occurred in provinces with high levels of paramilitary presence and activity, such as Córdoba, Antioquia, Meta, Bolívar, and Atlántico, among others.
