Brubacher served in 1986 as a non-salaried congregational leader. It has been affiliated with the Markham-Waterloo Mennonite Conference since its beginning in 1950. The language of worship is English. The language transition from German began in the 1940s.

The congregation began services at this meetinghouse in 1950. The first building was occupied in 1950 with expansion in 1955. The congregation originated through the colonization of Peel Township by Markham-Waterloo Mennonites. In 1992 the congregation divided into Goshen East and Goshen West.
