The Ëglise Ëvangélique Mennonite du Burkina Faso has roots in early missionary efforts of the Christian and Missionary Alliance (CMA). The CMA began its work in 1937, but in 1976 invited the Africa Inter-Mennonite Mission (AIMM) to take up the work in Kénédougou.

AIMM work began in 1978 and by 2018 the Ëglise Évangélique Mennonite had over 20 places of worship with 16 trained pastors. Almost all congregants are first generation Christian of either animist of Muslim background. Young people make up a majority of the nation and the churches.

In 2009 a center for basic biblical training opened for persons who used the Jula language. The church has also worked with Mennonite Central Committee to fight AIDS.

In 2018 Église Évangélique Mennonite du Burkina Faso had 21 congregations with 668 baptized members.
