The Altoona Mennonite Gospel Mission was established in 1910, under the Southwestern Pennsylvania Mennonite Conference. In 1926 a meetinghouse was built at 2504 Fourth Avenue and named the First Mennonite Church. About one half of the congregation of 68 members in 1949 lived in the city. With the exception of the staff of workers, all the members were converts of the mission. J. M. Nissley was superintendent and pastor 1919-1949.
