The Nehemiah Foundation



We envision Springfield and Clark County as a community where all people would know God’s love for them.


The Nehemiah Foundation provides a network for Christian churches and ministries to amplify their positive impact to build God’s kingdom in Springfield and Clark County.






Casey Cockerham

For the past 15 years, Casey has served on staff at churches in Kentucky and Ohio. He most recently pastored a church in Beavercreek, which grew from 40 to 400 members over the course of 7 years. Casey’s pastoral heart and visionary leadership has proved beneficial for The Nehemiah Foundation as we seek to bring unity, strategy, and cooperation to the Body of Christ in our community.
