Pleasant View Mennonite Church (formerly Pleasant View Amish Mennonite), located near Berlin, Holmes County, Ohio, a member of the Conservative Mennonite Conference, was organized in May 1912 with about 20 members under the leadership of Bishop John B. Zook. Ministers who have served the church are P. V. Yoder and Dan Miller. Ministers who have been ordained by this church are John Swartzendruber, Joe Schlabach, Abe J. Schlabach, M. J. Swartzendruber, and Harry Stutzman. In 1933 there was a split in the church and the congregation began again with 21 members. In 1945 the congregation organized another wor­ship service in Wayne County, Ohio, north of Tragy Station on U.S. 30. In 1955 the combined member­ship of the two groups was 250, with Bishop Harry Stutzman and ministers Moses M. Miller, David L. Stutzman, and Andrew Stutzman in charge.

In 2011 the leading minister was Dennis Hostetler and the congregational membership was 182.
