Moving Forward for the Next Thirty Years

Like so many events in life, the Nehemiah Project emerged through a process of prayer and struggle to discern and be obedient to God’s call and direction. It has continued to develop throughout the past two years (2017 - present), shaped through candid conversations between the founding pastor, the Rev. Dr. Renee McCoy, current and past members of Full Truth Fellowship of Christ Church, members and leaders within African American LGBTQ communities, faith leaders, and LGBTQ allies and supporters. It is designed to revive, reshape, and reboot Full Truth Fellowship of Christ Church as it steps into the next 30 years. It’s about the many possibilities waiting to unfold for Full Truth. The Nehemiah Project is a way to realize some of those possibilities and a new beginning for the African American LGBTQ communities in the Detroit metropolitan area. It will be operated through the combined efforts of community members and members of the church. At its core is a diverse leadership team composed of individuals with various skills and abilities. This is an idea in its infancy and, as such, it is dynamic and emerging. The next step is to empower healing through financial support, participation, and the partnership of individuals and organizations in the Detroit metropolitan area and throughout the country who are willing to invest time, energy, and resources in an effort that has far reaching and positive implications for all persons for many years to come.

Our goal is $30,000, which is needed to make the building safe and secure. We will then be able to withstand the harsh Michigan winters and make significant renovations to the interior spaces to allow broader community usage. Because of you, our future will be strong and hopeful. Because of you, the Nehemiah Project will make a positive difference in the lives of many!!
