About NCC

In the winter of 1983, eight families met and believed that God was calling them to plant another church in Vanderhoof. They believed God called for:

  • a celebration, with uplifting and encouraging worship;
  • positive, practical teaching from God’s word;
  • an atmosphere of love, acceptance, and hope;
  • quality ministries to and for the whole family;
  • a decision making process in which all believers have an opportunity to speak and be heard;
  • an opportunity to reach those who, over the years, have  either dropped out of church, or have never been interested in matters of faith.

From April 1983 until December 1989, NCC met at Evelyn Dickson Elementary School.  On December 3, 1989, we moved into our own building,  and in March of 1995 went to two Sunday morning services.

An associate pastor responsible for family ministries, evangelism, and discipleship was added to the pastoral team in December 1995.  Our first meeting in the new Worship Centre — an extention to the original building — was on October 10, 2004; since that time we have met together in one Sunday service, at 9:30 a.m.

Nechako Community Church is a member of the Mennonite Brethren Denomination, which presently has about 105 churches in British Columbia.
