We derive our name from the Book of Nehemiah, where Nehemiah was burdened to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. While Nehemiah was in the safety of the “Citadel of Susa”, he heard about the remnant in Jerusalem that was in “great distress and reproach.” Nehemiah International Ministry (NIM), born as Nehemiah Project in 2004, is an organization of Christian men and women who have received a vision/burden to rebuild the walls of the body of Christ in Eritrea. Our passion and desire is to Glorify God and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ through assisting and helping persecuted and dispersed church of Eritrea. As disciples of Jesus we believe that our calling is to be a voice to the voiceless and care for the physical and spiritual needs of those who are being persecuted for their faith.
NIM is a non-profit organization that is run by six active Board of Officers. The Board of Officers consists of a chairman, a treasurer, a secretary and three members.
