"...Mifflin County in central Pennsylvania. This region encompasses Kishacoquillas Valley [Big Valley]..., which has in it 12 Amish-related groups. All originated in whole or in part among the Amish who came to this region from southeastern Pennsylvania as early as 1791... The Brethren in Christ Church, a revivalist group, built a meeting house in Belleville in 1959. It gained adherents when members of the Beachy group, who by this time were allowed to have automobiles, began to attend Brethren in Christ revival meetings outside Big Valley. Like the Holdeman group, this group stresses repentance and conversion and conducts revival meetings, but does not require beards, a distinctive way of dressing, or avoidance of apostate members. the group has remained active but small in members.
