Work with members in your community and make a difference

Operation Nehemiah desires to partner with "in need" non-profit organizations and churches on building and rebuilding projects that will help transform the lives of the people they serve as we all work together in Jesus' name.

Our volunteers range from skilled tradespeople to those who just want to lend a hand and assist with the less technical aspects of renovation and construction. All are welcome!

Kathy T. on her Operation Nehemiah Experience in Brookport


"When I went to Brookport, I didn't know what to expect. I just wanted to be Jesus' hands. When I saw how all these groups pulled together rebuilding homes for people they didn't know, it was heartwarming. As we worked, some of the (homeowners) would come out and talk to us. It was then that I realized how much was lost and that what we were doing was being Jesus' hands." (Kathy spent the week laying rebar in sewer trenches as part of a tornado disaster relief team.)
