Nehemiah Project


The Nehemiah Project is a Christian Community Development Program in Chisholm:

Key Elements of Christian Community Development

Christian community development is a church-based ministry among the poor.
  • Begins with felt needs of the people in the community
  • Responds to those needs in a wholistic way
  • Is based on clear biblical principles
  • Is “time-tested”
  • Develops and utilizes leaders from within the community
  • Encourages relocation – living among the poor
  • Demands reconciliation – people to God and people to people
  •  Empowers the poor through redistribution – all community members sharing their skills, talents, education, and resources to help each other.
