Administrative history

Mennonite Church of Vernon was founded in 1980 in Vernon, B.C. with 13 charter members. They purchased and renovated their own meeting house in 1980. In 1991 they moved to a new meeting house.

The congregation was a member of the Conference of Mennonites in Canada until 2000 and Mennonite Church British Columbia until 2006. The congregation left both conferences following a decade of discussions on the issue of homosexuality.

In 2008 the congregation merged with the Cornerstone Evangelical Free Church in Vernon to form Grace Bible Church of Vernon, a non-denominational church.
