The Jansen Mennonite Brethren Church, now extinct, was organized in 1890 by Elder J. J. Regier. At that time Isaac Wall was chosen minister and leader. An old saloon was purchased and remodeled into a meeting place. Later a church was built. Through revivals the congregation grew and for some time numbered more than 100 members. Later most of these members moved to newer settlements, and the congregation in 1950 consisted of only two families. Other ministers who served the church were Adam Ross, G. H. Jantzen, Waldo Hiebert, and P. V. Balzer.
