The Greenville New Order Amish settlement just west of Greenville, Mercer County, Pennsylvania, USA was established in 2006. The settlement was started by New Order Amish families from Holmes County, Ohio who wished affordable farmland, as well as an opportunity to be a witness to persons without a Christian faith. The Conneautville New Order Amish assisted in the initial settlement.

The first ordained leader to join the settlement was Deacon Enos Troyer who came from Kinsman, Ohio in fall 2006. Josiah Lynn Miller was ordained as the first local minister on 8 December 2007.

Settlement members in 2014 engaged in farming and various forms of construction work. Greenville is considered an "electric" New Order Amish settlement.

A schoolhouse/church building was constructed in 2009. In 2014 the settlement was considering starting a sister church.

In 2014 the settlement was part of the New Order Amish. The bishop was Marcus Mast, and the minister was Josiah Lynn Miller. There was one districts with a total of 25 family units.
