Fincastle Mennonite Church (Fincastle, Virginia, USA)
The Fincastle Mennonite Church in Fincastle, Virginia, USA begain in 2013 as an outreach of the Faith Mission Fellowship. Nine Beachy Amish families relocated to the Botetourt County area over the next 14 months. Several of the families were part of the Heritage Family Market.
For the first year the church used facilities made available by St. Marks Episcopal Church. In June 2014 the new congregation began to renovate the Lauderdale Community House into a church and school facility. Beginning in September 2014 the congregation used the facility for almost two years until it purchased the former Flatwoods Church of God of Prophecy building on Old Fincastle Road in summer 2016.
In 2019 the church was a member of the Beachy Amish Mennonite Fellowship and had a membership of 34. The bishop was Timothy Weaver and the minister was Ralph L. Miller.
