Old Order Yorker River Brethren - Rankings by Area (Metro-Areas) [Counties] [States]

The Old Order (or Yorker) River Brethren separated in 1843 from their parent church, the River Brethren (now known as the Brethren in Christ), protesting what they saw as laxity in matters of nonconformity to the world and non-resistance to the military. They are currently the smallest among the River Brethren groups, having only four congregations in southeastern Pennsylvania. [View our profile of Old Order Yorker River Brethren]
