NearHim Home Educators

“Encourage One Another

and Build Each Other Up.”

1 Thes. 5:11


NearHim Home Educators Statement of Faith:

We believe in God the Father, Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth; in Jesus Christ, His only begotten Son, our Lord; and in the Holy Spirit.  We believe Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.  We believe Jesus was crucified to pay the debt for our sins, then rose again on the third day, and became Mediator between God and Man.  We believe the Bible is the infallible Word of God.

Mission Statement:

As a Christian homeschool group, we desire to help families grow in maturity in Christ, and more specifically, to assist families whom God has called to teach their children at home and do so in a manner which honors God.  (Deuteronomy 4:9)

NHE History:

NHE began in August of 1994, when fifteen homeschool families, gathered together for the first meeting and formed Northland Home Educators, a ministry of Northland, A Church Distributed.  NHE, keeping its original initials, became NearHim Home Educators Inc., a non-profit corporation in 2004.  NHE maintains a close relationship with Northland, A Church Distributed.

Monthly Meetings:

NHE welcomes visitors and new members at any time of the year.  All monthly meetings are open to visitors.  Monthly meetings are held at 7:00 pm on the fourth Thursday of each month August through May (3rd Thursday), excluding December, at Northland, A Church Distributed, 530 Dogtrack Road, Longwood.
