The Torrington Mennonite Church in Torrington, Wyoming, USA was established in 2017. The congregation started as a church plant of the Summersville Mennonite Church in Greensburg, Kentucky.

To mesh with their roots and business backgrounds, the church planters from Kentucky sought an agricultural community in the west, specifically irrigated agricultural land. They also wanted to avoid tourism.

In 2018 the church was a member of the Ambassadors Amish Mennonite Churches and had a membership of 20. The ministers were Forrest Eric Mast and Marcus W. Lengacher.
