Maranatha Amish Mennonite - Rankings by Area (States) [Counties] [Metro-Areas]
The Maranatha Amish Mennonite Church has its origins within the Beachy Amish Mennonites. During the 1980s, concerns among some Beachy leaders over multiple issues within the denomination prompted a call for restructuring. Some progress was made during the early 1990s, prompted by new guidelines proposed by conservative ministers on 18 issues of concern (called "A Charge to Keep, I Have"), but these efforts were soon abandoned. Nevertheless, some church leaders rallied in response, holding a meeting in Tennessee in 1997. This would become the first Maranatha Amish Mennonite meeting, though the development of the group's separate identity from the Beachys would take several years, leading into the early 2000s.
