Administrative History

Mennonites from Russia arrived at the Erb Street Mennonite Church, Waterloo, in July 1924. That year these Mennonites met for worship in homes in the area including New Dundee, St. Jacobs, and Baden. In 1925, the congregation was organized as the Molotschna Mennonite Brethren Church of Kitchener with 18 charter members. They met to worship alternately in St. Jacobs and at the Bethany Mennonite Church in Kitchener. Later in 1925 they settled in rented facilities in Kitchener.

In 1935, the congregation purchased their own meeting house in Kitchener. The membership was 178 in 1942. This building was used until 1953, when the present meeting house was built in Kitchener. In 1953, the membership stood at 356. This building was expanded in 1956. During the 1950s, it absorbed members from the Hespeler and New Hamburg congregations that dissolved. From 1955 to 1964, the Ontario MB Bible School was located in the new education wing added to the new meeting house. In 1961, the Zion MB Church was an outgrowth of this congregation. The membership was 427 in 1961 and 394 in 1967. In 1967, the Waterloo MB Church was another outgrowth. In 1971, they again expanded the meeting house building. In 1980, the membership was 450. In the 1980s, another congregation was formed in the Kitchener area, the Glencairn congregation. In 2000, the membership stood at 427.

The leaders of the congregation were: Jacob Friesen (1925–1932), Henry H. Janzen (1932–1944), Jacob A. Kutz (1944–1945), Henry Thielman (1945–1949), Frank Peters (1949–1954, 1965–1973), Isaac Ewert (1954), Jacob Toews (1954–1959), William Schmidt (1959–1964), Isaac Thiessen (1964–1965), Henry Dueck (1973–1974), John Froese (1974–1985), John Wall (1986–1989), Ron Toews (1990–1994), Allan Labun (1995–2000), Grant Gordon (2000–2002), Vidya Narimalla (2002– ).
