In 2003 Harvey and Shirley Janzen and Josinaldo and Shantelle Almeida had a vision to start a church in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan after Regal Heights Mennonite Brethren Church closed in June 1999. The Janzens eventually left for Yorkton, but the Almeidas continued and began hosting a regular gathering in their home. Services began in November 2003.

The church has a plurality of leadership approach to leadership with no senior pastor. The moderator provides leadership to the elder board, comprised of elders and pastor/elder. 

In 2011 the congregation planted the Riverhurst Church beside Lake Diefenbaker.

The pastors in 2010 were Willard Hasmatali and Doug Rempel and the membership was 30.
