Tuleta Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church), a member of the South Central Mennonite Conference located near Tuleta, Bee County, in southern Texas, between San Antonio and Corpus Christi, was founded in 1905 by Peter Unzicker, a minister from Illinois, who acquired considerable property here and laid out the town site. A few years later other families moved in. Early ministers were J. M. R. Weaver, D. S. King, D. Y. Hooley, C. L. Ressler, and Adolph Nick 1923-1925, Daniel Kauffman and Amos S. Horst 1928-1929, and E. S. Hallman 1929-d. 1950. A severe drought in 1917 and other reasons caused most of the families to leave. The highest membership was 104, and the lowest 9, which was the membership in 1957.
