Nehemiah Ministries, Inc.
Springfield, MA 01105
Nehemiah Ministries, Inc. is a Christian organization that takes its
name from the leading figure of the Old Testament book of Nehemiah. Nehemiah was an Israelite leader born in exile under the Persian Empire who, when he learned of the devastation of his ancestral homeland, used his position to secure resources from the king for the rebuilding and revitalization of his community.
Our ministry is rooted in the Gospel and based on the model exemplified by this Biblical saint. It is our conviction that, as priveleged Christians, we have abandoned our neighbors in the inner cities, and we challenge ourselves and the broader church to model an incarnational lifestyle of relocation, redistribution, and reconciliation in these hurting communities. Thus, we seek to obey the Great Commission by embodying the Kingdom of God in community and by proclaiming the Good News through example rather than mere persuasion.
