Thank you for visiting our website!

The Altus Nehemiah Initative is a ministry of the Jackson County Ministerial Alliance with a vision of transforming lives, one home, one neighborhood at a time.  Our mission is showing God's love to people of Altus in need through restoring homes, hope and hearts.

Our calling is patterned from Nehemiah's example of returning to rebuild Jerusalem from the ground up. Nehemiah prayed, evaluated the city's condition, cast a vision and executed God's plan for the city. You could say that Nehemiah believed that Jerusalem was a community worth investing in. The Jackson County Ministerial Alliance pastors believe that Altus is a community worth investing in!

Jeremiah wrote to the Jerusalem exiles who were living in Babylon and said, "Work for the peace and prosperity of the city where I sent you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, for its welfare will determine your welfare." (Jeremiah 29:7)

We believe that if Altus propsers, our churches will prosper.  And if our churches prosper, our people will prosper.

Reveal Ceremony at 423 W. Walnut!

Today's Reveal was a very fitting way to turn over the keys to the home on 423 West Walnut. A hopeless house was transformed into a happy home. The impossible for one struggling person became God's possible. We are thankful to be a part of a success story -- a "Good News" headline just before we celebrate the Glad Tidings of Christmas.

We are thankful to make an impact, one home at a time!

Stay tuned for more detailed information, video and photos to be posted online through Facebook, our website, and in Altus and Lawton news in the next week or so.

For tonight's event, we had 27 attendees (2 were not in the picture from our original post earlier), plus homeowner Alexus Pitts and her daughter Daviyah.

In attendance were Oklahoma Senator Brent Howard, Altus Mayor Jack Smiley (we learned just 1 week ago he had family ties to the home), Altus Chamber of Commerce President & CEO Rodger Kerr (not in picture) as well as pastors from 4 churches. Joining them were faithful volunteers and community church members. Estimated resources to complete this project include 3 solid months for 75 volunteers from churches, businesses and Altus Air Force Base groups to provide 1,000 hours of service, and approximately $7500 in donated labor and materials.F
