The Nehemiah Project

"Over 90,000 backpacks have been distributed to children in need since 2001.”


Nehemiah Project

Over 90,000 backpacks have been distributed to children in need since 2001. This is accomplished in partnership with area title one schools, corporations, local churches, and non-profits.

After discovering how many children from low income families came to school without sufficient supplies, we started this program to ensure they had the supplies to do well in school. 

How can you help? 

  • Adopt a child or even better- a class room.
  • It costs $15.00 per backpack with supplies and a Bible. Consider donating supplies or the money to purchase them in bulk.
  • Talk to your church or business about becoming a partner.

What is 10b4?

The church is under attack and kids are growing up with Jesus being regulated by the government. Any form of God recognition has been removed from our schools. Young people need support in order to fight the battle between darkness and light.

Students are being encouraged to take a stand!

10 minutes before each game (10b4) students & adults are asked to join in prayer at a designated location. This is a time to band together & influence those around us in a positive way.

How can you get involved?

Students can speak to their school administration for approval to start a chapter at their school. Once approved they will be provided with a flag and wristbands to pass out to their friends .

Prayer must be lead by the students, but parents and family members are welcome to join them.
