Ybor Mennonite Mission (Ybor City, Florida, USA)

Jump to: navigation, search

Ybor Mennonite Mission (Mennonite Church) began in 1930 among the Spanish-speaking people in Ybor City, Florida. It was sponsored by the Lancaster Mennonite Conference.

In the mid-1960s the Ybor City Mennonite Mission and Ida Street Mennonite Church merged at the Ybor City location. The congregation moved to new location in 1972 and took the name North Tampa Christian Fellowship. It became a multi-cultural congregation, with particular outreach to second and third generation Hispanics living in the United States. The congregation became part of the Southeast Mennonite Conference in the 1970s after congregations in the southeastern United States formed their own regional conference and left their founding conferences like the Lancaster the Conference.
