Sheridan Mennonite Church, located in the city of Sheridan, Yamhill County, Oregon, about 35 miles from the Pacific Ocean, was originally a member of the Pacific Coast Mennonite Conference. The church was organized in December 1923 with 35 charter members, as the outgrowth of a branch Sunday school started near McMinnville, Oregon, by the Hopewell congregation of near Hubbard, Oregon. The first ministers were Bishop Jacob D. Mishler and Daniel F. Shenk. In 1957 the membership was 302, with Gabriel D. Shenk and Raymond Mishler as bishops, and Daniel F. Shenk, LeRoy Cowan, and Oscar Wideman as ministers.

In 1966 the congregation left the Pacific Coast Conference and in 1967 helped to form the Bible Mennonite Fellowship.
