Nehemiah Signal 13 Ministry Start-Up Fundraiser

The Nehemiah Signal 13 Ministry (Nehemiah-Rebuilding; Signal 13- Officer Needs Help), located in the Hampton Roads, VA area, is a nonprofit organization being created, and will be operated, by Ministers Rachel and Chris Bryant. Rachel has served as a Public Safety Communications Operator since 1994. Chris served in Public Safety from 1997 to 2011. Chris began suffering from symptoms of PTSD beginning in 2009. Chris was misdiagnosed and prescribed incorrect medications and therapy until 2018, when proper diagnosis and treatment began. Rachel and Chris have been married since June of 2016, and there have been times when it has not been easy, due to the battle with PTSD. Over these four years, Rachel and Chris have devoted their individual lives to God, their marriage to God, and their family to God. They believe the suffering, trials and tribulations were pruning by The Almighty to place Rachel and Chris in a position to be able to further the Kingdom of God and help others. They believe they have been Called to provide a Divine Instruction Manual to individuals and couples, in the Public Safety field, who suffer from PTSD. Resources in the Hampton Roads, VA area for those outside of the military are scarce, especially faith based resources. Nehemiah Signal 13 Ministry will provide groups, tools, knowledge, training, support, and encouragement free of charge. God willing, this organization will help rebuild those in Public Safety who need help. The ultimate goal is to build a treatment center in the area. The current closest Public Safety related treatment center is approximately five hours away in Maryland.

The $4000 being raised will be used to start the ministry. Approximately $3000 is needed to fulfill financial responsibilities with to assist with building the ministry on paper. The remaining $1000 will be used to fulfill one time tax fees to both the Commonwealth of VA and the IRS. Should there be any left over or additional monies from this fundraiser, they will be placed in the next fundraiser to help build the treatment center.

The funds are needed as soon as possible. The ministry will be opened in steps, and paperwork is completed, but we hope to be up and completely running by 01/01/2021. 

The support gained from this fundraiser means a lot to the men and women who serve in Public Safety in the Hampton Roads, VA area. There are so very few places they can go and find relief right now where they feel safe. 

The Nehemiah Signal 13 Ministry, Rachel and Chris, its future board, and the many men and women and families it will server are eternally grateful for your financial support. May God bless you and keep. Thank you for your prayers, love, support, and encouragement.
