Glacierview Christian Fellowship was located in Courtenay, British Columbia. The congregation began services in 1986. Paul Koehler is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through outreach by Black Creek Mennonite Brethren Church and the British Columbia Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches, which it joined in 1988.
In 1996 the congregation lost its pastor and the congregation dwindled to about a dozen persons. Paul Hamilton, a schoolteacher in the Comox Valley School District became a part time pastor in early 1998. The congregation grew, but continued to struggle. In June 2000 the congregation merged with the Comox Valley Alliance Church to form the Living Hope Christian Fellowship, a member of the Christian and Missionary Alliance denomination.
