SUSTAINABLE CHURCH INITIATIVE
The Nehemiah Sustainable Church Initiative is designed to help churches and ministries to learn innovative and creative ways to disciple their congregations, including entrepreneurs and marketplace leaders while enhancing the church’s ability to sustainably achieve its mission.
Due to the challenges faced by churches brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic, the aging of baby boomers, and the increased secularization of culture, Nehemiah Project launched the Nehemiah Sustainable Church Initiative to partner with churches and church leaders to help them achieve financial viability, equip their congregations, including entrepreneurs and marketplace leaders, and transform culture.
According to the United Church of Christ, 40% of churches surveyed reported a decline in their giving. As of right now, we have yet to know the full financial impact of the pandemic on our churches.
At a time when society needs the church more than ever, the church finds itself weaker and potentially less relevant. However, we at Nehemiah Project strongly believe that the church is still the bride of Christ and society’s best hope.

It’s time to grow your impact!
Imagine if we changed the way we fought poverty around the world. Instead of giving handouts, we gave hand ups. Rather than handing out shoes, we build companies that make and sell shoes; instead of sending aid, we raised up Biblical Entrepreneurs who create jobs, positively influence the values of their nation and fund their own local churches and charities. Join us in this movement.
Because of the faithful generosity of our partners and donors, we are making a difference together. Because of YOU, it was possible to serve over 1871 entrepreneurs in 5 languages, create 562 new jobs, and open 5 new E-Community Centers in 2022. We are so grateful for the support, prayers, and continued generosity of every donor and ambassador of Nehemiah Project! Thank you for all you do to grow and honor His Kingdom in the Marketplace!

The Nehemiah Project’s BE training material is an excellent integration of practical business training and biblical basis for the values and ethics of managing a business on a day-to-day basis. I encourage every kingdom business person to consider taking these courses to gain a clearer view of how God looks at the business calling and how it relates to His kingdom on earth.
