Olivet Chapel, since 1965 known as the A.U.M.P. affiliated St. John's African Union Methodist Protestant Church, is a historic Presbyterian African American mission chapel located at Goshen in Orange County, New York. It was built about 1910 and is a load-bearing masonry building with a bluestone foundation and topped by a high hipped roof. Horace Pippin (1888–1946) was a noted member of the church prior to its moving to Olivet Chapel.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2010.[1]
