The Carrier Mills Amish Mennonite Church in Stonefort, Illinois, USA was established in 1991.

A group from the Hickory Amish Mennonite Church in Mayfield, Kentucky started this outreach in southern Illinois. A few families from the New Boston Amish Mennonite and Locust Grove Amish Mennonite congregations in Paris, Tennessee also soon joined the group. John Milton Yoder, a minister from Hickory, was part of the original group. He was ordained as bishop in 1993 for the Carrier Mills church.

In 2018 the church was a member of the Midwest Beachy Amish Mennonite Church and had a membership of 68. The bishop was John Milton Yoder, and the ministers were James A. Bontrager, John H. Gingerich, and Samuel W. Yoder.
