John D. Friesen (1921-2004)

1899-2004

Biographical sketch

John D. Friesen was born in the village of Chortitz, 10 km. west of Hague, Saskatchewan, on 6 October 1921, the oldest child of David (1900-1987) and Katharina (1874-1947) (nee Neudorf) Friesen. In 1940, he married Mary Gerbrandt (1917-2004), the daughter of Thomas and Helena Gerbrandt. In the winter of 1943-44, he attended the Hochfeld Bible School operated near Hague, Saskatchewan, by the Western Children's Mission, a missionary arm of the Mennonite Brethren church. He completed the two year course in one year.

In July 1940, John D. Friesen was ordained as one of the first two ministers of the first Rudnerweide Church in Saskatchewan, located at Chortitz. In 1952, Rev. Friesen was ordained as the bishop of the Saskatchewan Rudnerweide Church. When the Rudnerweide Church was transformed into the Evangelical Mennonite Mission Conference in 1959, Rev. Friesen was elected as its first moderator. He continued an active ministry both as a pastor in several of the EMMC churches and as an itinerate evangelist. He also became well-known for his radio broadcasts in the Low German language, "The Gospel Message," which he produced for over 30 years.

Scope and content

The John D. Friesen fonds consists of the church records and registers of the Saskatchewan branch of the Rudnerweide Church (1944-1956). The fonds also contains much material related to the various other ministries of Rev. Friesen, including sermon notes, personal reminiscences, ministry records, and church bulletins. Also related to his family and ministry are numerous photographic slides from his travels in North and South America.

A portion of John D. Friesen's library of English and German books is also contained in the collection, including a number of rare or short-run publications related to Mennonites. A considerable amount of correspondence and official records of his grandfather, Isbrand Friesen, from 1899 to 1944, is also included. The genealogical material in the fonds consists of two binders of Friesen/Schapansky and Gerbrandt/Kroeker family records, and an abundance of obituaries (1946-2004).

Custodial history

The materials in the John D. Friesen fonds were donated to the MHSS shortly after Rev. Friesen's death in 2004, according to his instructions.
