The Wildwood Mennonite congregation in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan began services in 1975, and formally organized in 1976. The first building was occupied in 1980. John Kroeker is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through outreach by the Conference of Mennonites of Saskatchewan and other Saskatoon churches.
