The Jefferson New Order Amish settlement north of Jefferson, Ashtabula County, Ohio, USA was established in 2011. The settlement started when families moved to the area from Conneautville, Pennsylvania and Missouri.

The families are farmers and carpenters, in addition to a bakery. Jefferson is part of the "electric" New Order Amish.

The Jefferson Christian School has been held in a variety of temporary locations, including a house trailer and a garage.

In 2014 the settlement was part of the New Order Amish. The bishop was Paul J. Byler, one of the original settlers, and the ministers were Gary Schlabach and Dannie R. Miller. There was one district with a total of seven family units.
