White County Mennonite Fellowship Church is located in Sparta, Tennessee, USA. The church originated in 1979 when several families withdrew from the Altamont Cumberland Mennonite Fellowship church. They originally attended at Crossville, Tennessee before establishing this congregation in February 1980. Although connected for a time to the Crossville group, because of differences in background and practice they established a separate congregation.

When bishop oversight changed to Jonas Hershberger in 1987, the congregation became part of the Mennonite Christian Fellowship.

In 2018 the church had 90 members and was a member of the Mennonite Christian Fellowship. The ministerial team included Bishop Lee M. Diller, Ministers Glenn Diller and Joshua Watson, and Deacon Nathan Coblentz.
