Lileva Mennonite Church (Rivnens’ka oblast’, Ukraine)

Jump to: navigation, search

Lileva Mennonite Church, Ostrog district in the province of Volhynia, is listed by Heinrich Dirks, with Johann Janz as leading minister, Johann Nachtigall as co-minister, and Johann Dekkert as deacon. No particulars are given about membership, etc. Peter M. Friesen also lists the congregation without any additional information. Both sources state that this congregation was a branch of the Alexanderwohl Mennonite Church of Russia. This fact indicates that these two congregations had a common background.
