Administrative history
The Glenbush Mennonite Brethren Church, near Medstead Saskatchewan, is a member of the Canadian Conference of the Mennonite Brethren Churches. The first organizational meeting of settlers from Russia, led by Nikolai Pauls, was held in 1928. At this meeting Pauls was unanimously elected as the church leader and the group decided to join the Mennonite Brethren Conference. Also in 1928 the group erected a log building in which to worship and to conduct Sunday school. In 1931 the group built a more permanent church building.

For many years the church was led by local unpaid pastors.

Church leaders have been Nikolai Pauls (1928–1956), Abe Pauls (1956–1962 and 1966–1980), Abe J. Klassen (1963–1965), Victor Nickel (1982–1987), Lawrence Redekopp (1988), Lorne Willms (1989–1991) and Gord Willison (1992–1998), John D. Klaassen (1998-2008), Terry Wicks (2008-2010).

In 1997 the church had 64 members.
