About the Steinbach Mennonite Church

The small congregation which later became Steinbach Mennonite Church held its first service on July 17, 1938. In 1942 the 53 member church was accepted into the General Conference.

Our Church

Church Building Projects bring out the best and the worst in people. This project must have brought out the best in our congregation. — John Kroeker


SMC has enjoyed the services of seven leading ministers:

The youth have always been an integral part of congregational life at Steinbach Mennonite. In 1951 the Youth Group was organized and Frank K. Isaac was one of its first leaders. The position of Youth pastor began in 1985 with Paul Dyck, then Craig Friesen, and presently Randy Hildebrand. From 2000 to 2005 Marvin and Tanell Wirzba served as Pastors of Family Life. Sunny Friesen served as Pastor of Young Families from October 2006 to mid-2010. Isbrand Hiebert was lead Pastor of the German service from 2006 to 2009; in September 2009 Ewald Goetz was hired as his replacement. Then in 2012 Ronald Wiebe took over as Pastor of German Ministries when Ewald Goetz resigned.

SMC has also been blessed by the services of many lay ministers who have served in both English and German services. There has been a strong emphasis on Christian education for all who attend Steinbach Mennonite. The aims and goals of SMC have been to obey the words of Jesus to proclaim the gospel and to make disciples at home and abroad. Many have heard the call and have gone to serve in an MCC assignment or term of mission outreach.
