Administrative History

The McIvor Ave. MB Church grew out of the North Kildonan MB Church. In 1974, the North Kildonan MB Church decided to form a new congregation. A new meeting place was built at 200 McIvor Ave. and the new congregation was officially formed in 1976. The congregation grew quickly. There were 248 charter members. In 2010, the membership stood at 546.

The leaders of the congregation were: Allan Labun (1976–1994), Wes Dahl (1995), Herb Kopp (1996–1998), John Epp (1999–2000), Doug Enns (2000–2006), Gerald Hildebrand (2006–2016).

The language of worship is English.
