Title and Physical Description
Mennonite Church Alberta fonds. — 1928-2012, predominant 1955-1995. — 4.8 m of textual material. — 99 photographs.

Administrative History
The Conference of Mennonites in Alberta was formed in 1929 largely by Mennonites who had immigrated to Canada from Russia in the 1870s and 1920s. It was affiliated with the Conference of Mennonites in Canada and with the General Conference Mennonite Church. By 1998 it grew to 21 congregations, including several in urban areas. In 2000, several congregations withdrew from the conference over issues of congregational discipline. In 2003 the conference adopted a new constitution and changed its name to Mennonite Church Alberta. It affiliated with the newly-organized Mennonite Church Canada. It has supported institutions such as Menno Bible Institute, Swift Current Bible Institute, Rosthern Junior College, Camp Valaqua, and Coaldale Home for the Aged. It supports auxiliary organizations such as Alberta Women in Mission and Alberta Mennonite Youth Organization.

Custodial History
The records have been created by various committee and non-committee members of MCA and transferred to the Mennonite Church Alberta. Records transferred to MHSA in 2002 were in the custody of Henry Goerzen, Conference of Mennonites in Alberta Archivist.
