Clearview Fellowship, Montezuma, Georgia.

Clearview Fellowship is located in Montezuma, Georgia. The church was organized in 1989.

Because of overcrowding, in the late 1980s the Montezuma Amish Mennonite congregation began erecting another meetinghouse in the community and made plans on distributing its membership. However, some members expressed dissatisfaction with the standards enforced within the congregation. An outside bishop committee made recommendations, but they were not accepted by the dissidents, who then began to meet in the new facility.

Noah Yoder was ordained minister in 1992 and bishop in 1997; Dennis Swartzendruber was ordained minister in 1993. Some reconciliation later took place between the churches.

In 2017 the church had 98 members and was a member of the Beachy Amish Mennonite Fellowship. The ministerial team included Bishop Noah W. Yoder, Ministers Henry Overholt, Jr. and Clyde Yoder, and Deacon Wesley Yoder.
