Grace Ethiopian Evangelical Church was accepted as a church plant by the British Columbia Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches Board of Church Extension in 2001. At that time, Asfaw Bekele, who grew up in a Meserete Kristos (Mennonite) congregation in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, began serving as the congregation's pastor. The congregation was involved in church extension work in Ethiopia and was exploring an Ethiopian church plant in Victoria, British Columbia. The congregation joined the BC Conference of MB Churches in 2002. In that year the church had 60 members. By 2008 membership had grown to 85. In 2010 membership was 50 with an average attendance of 100. Services were in the Amharic language.
