The Grunthal Evangelical Mennonite Brethren Church is a Bible believing church located on 84 Oak Avenue in Grunthal, Manitoba. We are a member of the Fellowship of Evangelical Bible Churches. 

Our purpose is to bring glory to God. We desire to faithfully do this by declaring the word of God as the word of God, unapologetically. The bible is to be authoritative in the lives of His people. Therefore we meet as a like-minded body, the family of God, enjoying one another's fellowship ; for mutual edification and discipleship to the glory of God; and to proclaim the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ as a witness to our community and to the world. (Ephesians 4: 11-13; Acts 1;8).

Our aim is to equip the body of Christ through everything we do. Sunday mornings include Sunday School for all ages from 9:30 – 10:15 am, and our church service starting at 10:30 am. Throughout the week we offer Bible classes (Old Testament, Hermeneutics and New Testament), Prayer nights, Men’s Bible Study, Women’s Bible Study, small groups, College & Career, and Youth. We also have various women’s events throughout the year. 

We would love for you to join us!

Reverend Jim Fast


Reverend Jim Fast and wife, Beth have four sons, four daughters-in-law, and 11 grandchildren. They are followers of Jesus Christ having come to faith in Jesus at an early age. Their deep desire is to glorify the Lord.

They both grew up in Christian homes with fathers who were pastors. Their parents held to a high view of Scripture, which brought with it a firm belief in the promises, covenants and plans of God for Israel & the church, the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ, and the call to holy living for the believer.

Jim has studied at different theological institutions over the years: Winnipeg Bible College, with seminary studies at various Theological Schools under various Biblical Scholars.


Together they have served for over 40 years in pastoral ministry at various places in Canada. Both Jim and Beth have a deep love for the Scriptures. They have a deep concern for expounding the truths of Scripture.

“The growing burden of our hearts over the past years is to give ourselves to prayer and the ministry of God’s Word.”
