Richmond Pacific Grace MB Church was a church plant of South Vancouver Pacific Grace MB Church. Their pastor, Patrick Fung, was appointed by the British Columbia Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches in 2004 as a church planter for Ignite Vancouver, a cooperative church planting program of the Canadian and British Columbia Mennonite Brethren conferences. In July 2005 Fung began his work with the daughter congregation, and their first service was held on 3 October 2005 with 136 adults and 40 children. The congregation became independent on 1 January 2006 and in April 2006 the congregation was accepted into the British Columbia Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches.

The languages of worship in 2007 were English and Cantonese. The membership stood at 50 with an average weekly attendance of 180. By 2010 the church had grown to 168 members with an average weekly attendance of 220, led by Patrick Fung.
