The Rouge Valley Mennonite Church in Markham, Ontario began services and formally organized in 1986. Steve Drudge is considered the founding leader of the merged congregation. The congregation originated through the merger of Cedar Grove Mennonite Church and Steeles Ave. Mennonite Church. The congregation used the building of the former Cedar Grove Mennonite Church, built in 1861 and renovated several times. A new building was erected in 1996.
