  • If you're actually serious, I'd suggest you look into a Mennonite church first. (kind of like Amish lite)

  • The Amish are anabaptists, meaning that you have to be an adult in order to make the decision to be a member of their church/community. You can probably convert, but they might be skeptical of an "English" person who wants to be a part of a church that they have not been raised in. I would imagine that you would need find an Amish community and actually go talk to one of the Elders.

  • I agree with Eilish, I would find a community and talk to the Elders first. From what I know of them they are very wary of people that weren't born Amish, "English' as they call us. Or look in to a Mennonite church first as a pp suggested.

  • ~giggles~ i just love the irony of you using a computer to ask this.

    Ask them, and get rid of the computer, the phone, and stop talking to people who aren't amish.
