The Western Conservative Mennonite Fellowship was formed around 1973, when three churches in Oregon that had formerly belonged to the Nationwide Mennonite Fellowship formed a very loosely organized new group. They chose to be recognized as a fellowship for the purpose of identity and to have a larger base for counseling, fellowship, and mission outreach. In 1983 the group started the Hummingbird Gospel Mission in Belize.

In 2010 the fellowship consisted of ten congregations in Alberta, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, and Belize with a total membership of 558. The fellowship was led by five bishops.
