The St. Ignatius New Order Amish settlement east of St. Ignatius, Lake County, Montana, USA was established in 1997. The settlement started when three families from the Rexford/Libby, Montana, Amish community moved to the St. Ignatius area with the support of church.

The settlement has used a church house since 2009. In 2014 most families were in construction, furniture manufacture and small retail shops. In 2014 the St. Ignatius settlement was a "non-electric" New Order Amish settlement.

Students were first taught in a home basement and then in a house trailer. The Mission Valley Christian School was built in 1998.

In 2014 the settlement was part of the New Order Amish. The bishop was Simon Ray Miller. There was one district with a total of 39 family units.
