It was organized by Bishop Daniel Brundage in 1873, who also organized the three other churches, namely, the Catlin Mennonite Church near Peabody in 1876, the West Liberty Mennonite Church near Inman in 1883, and the Pennsylvania Mennonite Church near Newton in 1885. Brundage also organized the Kansas-Nebraska Mennonite Conference in 1876, which later came to be the Missouri-Kansas Conference but now is called the South Central Conference. In 1957 Charles Diener was pastor, with a membership of 59.
