    Other groups

    As I follow many of these threads about joining the Amish, it occurs to me that many people who are led to seek fellowship with an Old Order group may not be looking far enough. There are other Old Orders out there that are much more approachable than the Amish. The Old Order River Brethren and Old German Baptist Brethren groups come to mind. These groups are very open to outsiders and both have numerous members who were not born into the church. Both are very conservative, plain dressing, English speaking(no need to learn a new language) and both have smaller brotherhoods that are horse and buggy for those being led that way.

    joining the Amish

    I know of a guy that lived with them and pretended he was going to join to avoid the law.

    Are the horse and buggy Mennonites similar when it comes to Converts?

    Yes, the Old Order Mennonites (horse and buggy) would be equally difficult to join. There are car driving Old Order Mennonites as well. The same obstacles as with the Amish would be present with the OOM.
