Administrative history

The Warman Mennonite Brethren Church had its beginnings in 1932 when Isaac P. Friesen of Rosthern conducted a two-week evangelistic crusade in the Warman town hall. Thereafter, ministers form the Langham Bethesda Church (General Conference) conducted Sunday services. After 1939 the Mennonite Brethren churches from Saskatoon and Dalmeny took charge. The first church building was erected in 1940. John Gunther was the first full-time worker (1944-1947). Other leaders were Menno Lepp (1947-1952), Norman Fehr (1952-1957), Frank Froese (1957-1968), Elvin Penner (1968-), Ben L. Heppner (1975-1982), Dave Esau (1983-1986), Rudy Lemke (1987-1996) and Conrad Neudorf (1997-). In 1967 the Warman M.B. Church was accepted into the Conference with 44 members. The church became self-supporting in 1969.
