Two families in La Honda, Zacatecas, Mexico in 2005 or early 2006 asked the Calton Conservative Mennonite Church in Aylmer, Ontario, Canada to begin a church in La Honda. Initially the Calton church encouraged the families to Ontario, and one of them did. However the other family was unable to move, and again called for a church to be planted in Mexico.

The Calton congregation decided to move ahead and in late 2007, eight families from Calton were chosen to move to at La Honda. This followed the colonization pattern of church planting used by Nationwide Fellowship churches. The ordained leaders chosen were Herman Bergen and Wilhelm Bergen.

In 2018 the church had 42 members and was a member of the Nationwide Fellowship Churches. The ministerial team included Bishop George Wall, Minister Herman L. Bergen, and Deacon Wilhelm M. Bergen.
