The Belize Council of Churches has the representation of several denominations present in Belize and is one of the country’s social partners.  Their counsel is sought at times by the politicians in several areas particularly when it comes to matters of human rights, national security and others.  While the council is known to be a strong organization although they have not been known to flex their muscles, the media asked the council just how influential they feel they are when it comes to the Belize/Guatemala matter.  Canon Leroy Flowers says it is not so much about influence but more about awareness and solutions.

The current President of the Belize Council of Churches is Bishop Roosevelt Papouloute of the Methodist Church of Belize.
