Mennonites from Russia arrived in the Herschel area in the winter of 1924-1925. They organized their congregation in 1925 as the Ebenfeld Mennonite Church and joined the Conference of Mennonites. The congregation had 34 charter members under the leadership of Elder Jacob B. Wiens and Gerhard Wiens. In 1926 there were 117 members. A meeting house was built in 1927. By 1936 the membership was 278. Following the death of J. B. Wiens in 1939, J. J. Thiessen served the church until 1943, when Cornelius J. Warkentin was elected and ordained elder. A number of different meeting places were begun over the next decades. In 1945 a new meeting house was built in Superb, one of the four meeting houses of this "Gemeinde." The other meeting places were Fiske and Glidden, along with Herschel.

The Ebenfeld Gemeinde was divided into four congregations in 1958 and in 1973 these congregations became independent. In 1980 the Ebenfeld congregation changed its name to the current Herschel Ebenfeld Mennonite Church.

The leaders of the Ebenfeld church were: Jacob B. Wiens (1925-1939); J. J. Thiessen (1939-1942) on a visiting basis; and Cornelius J. Warkentin (1943-1957) [and he remained bishop of the four congregations (1958-1970)]. Since 1990 the leader of Herschel has also been the leader in Fiske.
