The Conservative Mennonite Churches of York and Adams Counties, Pa., consisted in 1986 of six congregations: Hanover, Hershey, Kralltown, Mummasburg, North Hartman Street in York, and Winterstown. They were formerly a part of the York-Adams District of the Lancaster Mennonite Conference(MC) and asked to be released in 1975 because of certain trends in the Lancaster Conference. In 1986 Elmer H. Kreider was the bishop. There were nine ministers, seven deacons, and a membership of 221.
In 2005 there were five congregations with 222 members. The bishops were Elmer H. Kreider and Elvin Z. Rohrer. In 2010 membership had increased to 241. At that time the group also operated two schools, Hanover Mennonite School and Kralltown Mennonite School. Their periodical was The Inspirational Informer, edited by Jacob Shank.
