The Bukiroba Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church), located six miles (10 km) east of Musoma, Tanzania, is the central station of the Mennonite Mission, serving several small tribes. Work was begun there on 4 December 1935 by the Clinton Fersters and the Elam Stauffers. The 1953 membership stood at 62 members. John Leatherman had the pastoral oversight of this church during its early years. The work was under the Eastern (Lancaster) Mennonite Board of Missions and Charities.
