Nehemiah Sustainable Church Initiative

“And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.”
Matthew 16:18


A sustainable church is a spiritually vibrant church that is financially viable with a thriving congregation committed to impacting culture until Jesus comes.

problem3 moral decline - Nehemiah Entrepreneurship Community


With the decrease of morals and ethics in the public square, the local church is needed now more than ever

Looking to enhance the impact of your church and congregation in your community, the marketplace, and the world to fulfill the great commission?

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.
