Bruderthaler, a name once used by a number of congregations in the former Evangelical Mennonite Brethren Conference, (now Fellowship of Evangelical Bible Churches) viz., at Mountain Lake, Minnesota; Marion, South Dakota; Aberdeen, Idaho; Chinook, Montana; Steinbach, Manitoba; Dallas, Oregon; and Langham, Saskatchewan. The Bruderthaler Church in Minnesota was one of the two groups which formed the conference later called the Evangelical Mennonite Brethren. For a time the conference was popularly known as the Bruderthaler Gemeinde. The name was dropped and the congregations commonly called themselves the Evangelical Mennonite Brethren Church with the name of the location.
