Niverville Community Fellowship began on 1 January 2009, the result of a merger between Niverville Mennonite Church, a member of the Mennonite Church Manitoba conference, and Elim Mennonite Church, a daughter congregation of Niverville Mennonite Church that after a number of years had joined the Evangelical Mennonite Mission Conference.

Discussions began in the fall of 2007 between Niverville Mennonite, Elim Mennonite, and Fourth Avenue Bible Church (MB) to explore how the three congregations could work together more intentionally. In the summer of 2008 the Fourth Avenue congregation requested leave of the process. Eventually the leaders of the Niverville Mennonite and Elim Mennonite congregations recommended a merger of the two churches, and on 30 November 2008, 85% of the members of both congregations approved the proposal to merge.
