The three leaders elected in 1934 were Gerhard A. Warkentin (moderator), Isaac K. Epp (assistant), and Frank J. Peters (secretary and treasurer). While all three were also called to be lay ministers, Peters was the foremost of the three. He officiated the first baptism on 26 July 1936.
Brad Wall, the Premier of Saskatchewan (2007- ), was a member of this congregation.
