Nehemiah’s Quest

In creating the name for a faith-based youth group, we looked hard at the organization’s mission. The mission was to teach youth at risk that making a change was not up to others, but in their hands as well. The organization believes firmly that faith and hard work can and indeed does result in change. In the Old Testament book of the Bible, Nehemiah mobilizes all the tribes of Israel to repair in 52 days what had been in disrepair for over 100 years. The Wall of Jerusalem. Nehemiah’s quest was to honor God by rebuilding His wall and that by working together, amazing things happen.
