HESSTON MENNONITE BRETHREN HISTORY
In the 1970’s the people of Koerner Heights MB Church in Newton had a vision for birthing a new church. That took place in 1978 with 40 charter members. The new group met in the Hesston Middle School band room and moved to the current location in 1981.
During 1999-2000, we participated in a major refocusing process. It led to adding a youth pastor (2002) and a family pastor (2008). In 2006 a new sanctuary was added to the east side of the campus.
MENNONITE BRETHREN HISTORY
We are part of a larger family of believers known as Mennonite Brethren. There are about 400 churches up and down the plains states, the west coast, North Carolina and 37 countries. Our primary educational institutions are MB Biblical Seminary (Fresno, CA), Tabor College (Hillsboro, KS) and Fresno Pacific University (Fresno, CA).
From its small beginnings in Europe, the MB church has grown to include around 300,000 believers around the globe. Today we work in partnership with Mennonite Brethren in 20 other countries to impact our world for Jesus Christ.
