Blumenhof Mission Hall (Blumenhof, Manitoba, Canada)

Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Blumenhof Mission Hall began services about 1949 in Blumenhof, Manitoba. It originated through division from the Blumenort Evangelical Mennonite Church.

Blumenhof was begun by members who were interested in progressive change and revivalism, influenced by Pentecostal ministers at Alternative Service camps. All the members of the congregation were excommunicated by the Evangelical Mennonite Conference in 1951, probably because they held communion outside the church. The group moved to Steinbach in 1958 and became known as the Bethel Pentecostal Chapel.
