Jump to: navigation, search

Wildwood Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church), located at Curtis, Michigan, began in 1939 as a mission under the Indiana-Michigan board until 1956, when it became an independent congregation, with a sum­mer Bible school conducted by Chester Osborne. Clarence Troyer (1907-1997), a minister, came in the spring of 1940. The Beulah School was purchased in 1945 and converted into a meetinghouse. From this con­gregation the work at Naubinway and Brimley was started. Clarence Troyer was ordained bishop in 1948; in 1952 Lloyd R. Miller was ordained as assistant pastor of the congregation. They were still serving in 1959, when the membership was 32.
