Adrian Amish Mennonite Church (Nobles County, Minnesota, USA)
Adrian Amish Mennonite Church, which is now extinct, was located in Nobles County, Minnesota, about 15 miles (24 km.) northwest of Worthington. On 19 November 1893, Jacob Gascho was ordained to the ministry in this congregation, the first members of which came from Canada in 1891. Beginning in March 1893 the congregation held services every two weeks. In early 1894 the community numbered 12 families and 30 members. The Family Almanac of 1900 names Joseph Gerber as an Old Order Amish bishop, and Jacob Gascho, Joseph Grieser, Joseph Jantzi, John J. Miller, John Rupp, Joseph Schantz, and D. D. Schlabach as Amish ministers. In 1913-1916 these ministers were listed as Conservative Amish Mennonite. In 1917 no Amish preachers were listed in Minnesota, nor these men named in any other Amish or Mennonite lists.
