The Nehemiah House was built in 1897. It is a 4-unit house that is located blocks away from the church in Pico Union - a largely immigrant Latino community near downtown Los Angeles. In 2010 the church was able to purchase an additional property next door - the Emmaus House.
Together, these two houses form a community of three families, young interns, and a ministry center where S.A.Y. Yes! teen students meet three days a week.
There are three major components to the ministry:
(1) The 10-month Nehemiah House Internship
(2) Short-Term Ministry Groups and Internships
(3) The Open Door - Growing in community with the neighborhood through a teen center in the house, community meals 4 days-a-week, and learning to love one another.
We want to become like Jesus, and as a community, we want to learn to abide in Him, to proclaim Him through our words, and our humble service. Jesus came to reveal Himself and His salvation to the world, which He did by living and walking among the people who He had come to save. We participate with Him when we walk in His ways and learn to do His will, loving and serving people.
We all come from broken places. We are looking for interns who want to draw close to Jesus and become like Him.
