Nehemiah University is the educational outreach ministry of The Gospel Mission, Inc. (See video) The primary goal of the university is to introduce people to Christ and strengthen their relationship with Him. As they grow in Christ, the university enables them to be well-armed disciples for the advance of the Gospel. The school brings together the aspects of academic learning to provide for one’s self as well as the spiritual aspect to mind one’s body, soul and spirit.
The university is part of the overall missionary endeavor of the Gospel Mission, Inc. established as a mission church in 1912. All cost is paid for by generous volunteers, supporters and partner churches who want to invest in the people of the city knowing not all is lost. The Gospel Mission believes in being in the heat of the battle, marching through the streets with the Gospel of Christ in every student. As we sort through the debris of the inner city, decades of lost souls, we can proclaim from Nehemiah 2:18….
Let us rise up and build. So they strengthened their hands for this good work.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. Proverbs 9:10
The Bible Institute is for the advancement and growth of one’s relationship with Christ. We live in a world that challenges our faith every day.

For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life. Proverbs 6:23
One can hardly spend any time at all with our inner city youth without seeing a great need and challenge to reach them for the Lord. Granted, all youth experience "growing pains" with different challenges. Many of our youngsters do not have the advantage of both a mother and father at home, or perhaps it is grandparents endeavoring to raise the family. Add to the difficult home life, drugs, alcohol and other very prevalent vices, to which they are constantly exposed. Then, finally, top off all of that with a poor education and you have a formula for failure by anyone's standard.
Christian parents understand the necessity of these three key elements in a child's life: home, environment, and education. These elements must be blended with the love of God, through Christ. The Nehemiah University works to strengthen the elements needed for the youngsters.
Every day there are various classes that our youth may join. The university works in many educational areas from the Arts to Sciences. There are programs seven days a week. Our objective is to cultivate gifts and talents they may have and give them a desire to excel and accomplish. This all must be done with the love and wisdom of Christ.
