In January of 1965, Harold Funk, Alfred Klassen, Arndt Funk and Herwin Derksen--missionaries from the Friesland colony--arrived in San Estanislau to lead vacation Bible schools that lasted around eight to 10 days. Later, in 1966, Pastor Juan Pankratz carried out the first evangelistic campaign. In that campaign Filemón Duré and his wife Julia Pacce de Duré converted, and they later served as the pastoral couple of the “Iglesia Tapiracuai.” In July 1967 the church held its first worship service on the church's own premises. During this time, pastor Alberto Enns held an evangelistic campaign. The first missionary who worked permanently at the site was Harold Funk, and the first pastor was Alfred Klassen, who led the church from 1967 to 1972.

The initial ministries focused on children and young boys. Later a women's ministry and the evangelistic ministry were started. The church’s growth strategy consisted of house-to-house visitation, distribution of brochures in the neighborhood, evangelistic campaigns, camp-outs, home gatherings, and vacation Bible school.

In 2019, Pablo Efraín Ortiz Alonso, served as pastor of the congregation along with a team made up of Elder Maciel, Eliezer Yellow, Cristian Duré and Vidal Gómez. Church attendance averaged about 70 people. The congregation’s ministry program included: youth; praise, intercession, women; and children.

The “Iglesia San Estanislau,” created several church plants including the congregations of Tacuara, Republicanano, Calle Seis Mil, Bertoni, and Arroyo Guasu. The last church was in the process of becoming independent.
