Brushy Run Mennonite Church (Southeastern Mennonite Conference) is located on the east side of the Allegheny Mountains, three miles south of Onego, in Pendleton County, West Virginia on Brushy Run Road. This was likely an early preaching point. The church was organized in 1929 and a sanctuary was built here in 1933. It was once a strong Mennonite mission congregation of the Middle District of the Virginia Mennonite Conference (Mennonite Church), but in 1949 had only three members.
In 1972 the congregation was part of a group of churches that left the Virginia Conference to form the Southeastern Mennonite Conference due to concerns about deviations from traditional Mennonite doctrine in the church.
In 2009 the congregation had 28 members; the leader was Kenneth Martin. In 2014 the church had 33 members. The ministerial team included Bishop Kenneth Martin, Bishop Larry D. Showalter, and Minister Tom Shaum.
