The Mountain Valley Mennonite Churches is a group of five Mennonite congregations in Virginia and West Virginia that were formerly part of the Virginia Mennonite Conference. In 2002 when Mennonite Church USA was being formed from a merger of the Mennonite Church and General Conference Mennonite Church these congregations declined to join the new denomination and withdrew from the Virginia Conference to form the Mountain View Mennonite Churches.

In 2010 the Mountain Valley Mennonite Churches had five congregations with 392 members.
