Over the past year, the Nehemiah Project has helped encourage churches all over the world to create jobs as they have dealt with the financial and operational effects of COVID-19. According to the Church Executive, almost 60% of all churches had a reduction in giving income while 74% of churches are holding a hybrid of online and face-to-face services. Pat O’Donnell, Managing Director of Ministry Brands said “Church leaders remain understandably concerned about the economic impacts of COVID-19.”
However, churches have begun to turn towards their entrepreneurial allies to gain support while they face these tribulations. Even before COVID-19, entrepreneurs were never satisfied and constantly looked for ways to enhance their fields. Now more than ever, this trait is becoming essential as churches are forced to find new ways to expand and spread their missions. In an effort to support these churches and our own mission, the Nehemiah Project has partnered with numerous ministries around the United States by equipping them with Biblical Entrepreneurship to create jobs and work towards our goal of creating 100K jobs in 10 years.
