The Nehemiah Foundation

Common Concerns

We are building a network of Christian churches and ministries to address areas of distress in our community through the love of God.

Common Ground

We are working together with ministries and churches to create an overarching strategic Christian vision for the Springfield/Clark County community.

Common Impact

Bringing our talents together, we can create visible, lasting outcomes that will be evident in our homes, churches and neighborhoods.

The Nehemiah Foundation

Our name was inspired by the Biblical account of a man named Nehemiah who God used to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. In those days, Jerusalem was a symbol of the city of God, God’s dwelling place and the center of life for the world. Today, we believe that in our community today, the idea of rebuilding our “walls” should not be a picture of creating separation, but rather, that of re-establishing the strengths of our community. Through things like sheltering for the weak, releasing human potential, and fostering relationships, our hope is to help bring people, churches, and ministries together for the good of everyone in our city.

As the only Christian foundation in Clark County, we are the financial stewards for many charitable gifts and donations.


We, along with our ministry partners, are always looking for volunteers to help carry out our missions.


Our foundation thrives on our supporters’ collective time, talents and treasurers.


Our work is amplified when we have ambassadors in churches across Clark County and in the community helping us to connect with others.
