Hillsdale Mennonite Fellowship (Hillsdale, Pennsylvania, USA)
Hillsdale Mennonite Fellowship in Hillsdale, Pennsylvania, USA was started in 1992. The mother church was Gospel Light Fellowship in McVeytown, Pennsylvania. The Gospel Light Fellowship was running out of space, and it believed the best option was to establish a "plain" Anabaptist witness in another community.
On 1 July 1991 eight families were chosen by lot to move to a new ministry. Minister Sylvan Stoltzfus and Deacon Daniel K. Beiler were among those chosen.
The first Sunday morning worship service was held 22 March 1992 in Daniel Beiler's garage.
In 2018 the church had 055 members and was a member of the Mennonite Christian Fellowship. The ministerial team included Bishop Daniel K. Beiler, Ministers Nathaniel Stoltzfus and Sylvan Stoltzfus, and Deacon Luke E. Kurtz.
