Administrative history

Mennonite immigrants from Russia settled in the Winnipegosis and Fork River areas in the 1920s. They organized a congregation there in 1933. In 1935 they built their own meeting house. Ältester J. Bückert who remained a resident of Gretna served as their intitial leader. In 1953 C.C. Janzen became their 'resident' Ältester. Because of its geographic isolation from the rest of the conference congregations, it did not become too involved in conference activities but rather concentrated its efforts on a local camping programme. The leaders of the congregation were: C.C. Janzen (1953-1979), Abram Bergen (1933-1965), Henry Klassen (1959-1996), Jake Wiebe (1959-1998), Gerhard Goertzen (1934-1936), Jacob Martens (1933-1941), Glenn Nickerson (1981-1984), D. Rempel (1984-1989), George Oosterveld (1989-1990), David Wiebe (1993), Don Read (1994-1999), Abe Krahn (2000- )
