North Bronx Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church USA) in Bronx, New York, was founded in 1988, and joined the Lancaster Mennonite Conference shortly thereafter.

In 2016 the church had 20 members. The leading minister was Ruth Yoder Wenger.

In October the church made a unanimous decision to leave the Lancaster Mennonite Conference and join the Atlantic Coast Conference of Mennonite Church USA in order to remain in Mennonite Church USA. The church stated that they valued the wider denomination as a diverse community of believers and was also attracted by the Atlantic Coast Conference's welcome of women and men equally into all levels of leadership.
