In late summer 1960 the first service was held outside of Tom Downey’s home. Later, town halls were rented. In 1961 the EMC Board of Missions purchased the Red Cross Outpost Hospital, and carpenters turned the previously unfinished upper floor into a chapel. By the end of 1962 the Wright family had moved to Endeavour to work full-time in the church. By 1963 it had a record Sunday School attendance of 104. A youth group began. Endeavour Fellowship Chapel, with 13 members, was accepted into the Evangelical Mennonite Conference at its annual convention in 1965.
In 2012, the average Sunday School attendance was 40 and the worship service attendance was 70. The language of worship was English.
