Nehemiah Project

The Nehemiah project is an active and encouraging way to help church planters and their churches obtain their first church building. Many years ago Dr. Leroy Pennell of Heritage Baptist Church in Barrie started The Nehemiah project as a ministry of Heritage Baptist Church in Barrie, Ontario. Recently, Heritage Baptist Church under Pastor Brett Pennell’s leadership graciously has allowed Near North Baptist Church in North Bay and Reach North to have responsibility of the Nehemiah Project.

There is a constant need in Canada to purchase buildings for church planters and pastors who do not previously have a church building. We know that buildings are not cheap to purchase. It our sincere desire to help secure these buildings by taking a love offering from individual churches across Canada on a scheduled Sunday. These funds will be directed to Reach North ( Project 25). All funds will then be directed to the church desiring to purchase.

There are a few simple guidelines:

- The pastor of the potential purchase can meet with Pastor Kendall Wadley to personally discuss the specific need prior to the Nehemiah project.
- The church desiring help from the Nehemiah project must be purchasing their first building.

We truly desire to encourage churches through this great ministry started by Dr. Pennell. We would love to get to know you. Please contact us by email on our contact link for this page.
