Karo Batak Protestant Church
The first Christian envangelism was conducted among the Karo people in 1890 by the Netherlands Missionary Society. Due to the perceived association with the colonialism of the Dutch East Indies, only a minority of the Karo converted initially, and it was not until after Indonesian independence in 1945 that Christianity acquired significant support among the Karo people.
The church has 276,000 members (as of 2006) in 398 congregations with 196 pastors.
