Biographical history

The Alberta District Mennonite Conference was established on July 27, 1903. Initially there were only three congregations in the conference, all of which were founded in 1901: West Zion Mennonite Church in Carstairs, Mayton Church northeast of Didsbury, and Mount View Church northeast of High River. Amos Bauman, pastor of the Mayton church, was chosen as the interim bishop. The conference was affiliated with the Mennonite Church (known as the "old" Mennonite Church), which was largely composed of descendants of Swiss and South German Mennonites who had settled in western Pennsylvania and in Waterloo County, Ontario. The conference was renamed the Alberta-Saskatchewan Mennonite Conference in 1907; it became the Northwest Conference of the Mennonite Church in 1971; and the Northwest Mennonite Conference in 1993. By 1997 it consisted of 22 congregations, including a few in Alaska and Montana. In 2003, following the integration of the Mennonite Church and the General Conference Mennonite Church, the conference voted to discontinue its relationship with Mennonite Church Canada, thereby becoming an independent branch of the Mennonite faith.
