San Jose Mennonite Brethren Church, initially located at 1195 Clark St., in San Jose, California, 45 miles from San Francisco, was organized on 20 October 1940, with 20 charter members. Five pastors had served the congregation up until the late 1950s: D. J. Gerbrandt, J. J. Gerbrandt, A. Nickel, J. K. Warkentin, and William Neufeld. The congregation has used five places of worship. It began in a small Legion Hall until a small building on Montgomery Street could be purchased. Later a larger building was secured on Delmas Street. After this building was sold and until the present church was built (1951), the congregation met in Germania Hall. The membership in 1957 was 365.

The church later changed their name, first to Lincoln Glen Mennonite Brethren Church, and eventually to Lincoln Glen Church.
