If you were in downtown Cannon Beach on the sunny Friday afternoon of Nov. 9, you most likely saw or were approached by a group of people on a scavenger hunt from The Nehemiah Project International, Inc. They were in town for a staff retreat. Part of the scavenger hunt was to find the oldest candy store and take a picture with a city official and a veteran.

The staff represented people from different regions of the world, Such as the founders Patrice and Gina Tsaque from Cameroon and Haiti, along with other staff from Mexico, North America, the Pacific Northwest and Malaysia. It was challenging for a few members of the team since English was not their first language. But everyone they approached were welcoming and helpful. The Nehemiah Project is a business development and support organization that works in partnership with churches, marketplace ministries, educational institutions, associations and individuals around the world. They train and support kingdom companies through biblical entrepreneurship training, coaching and access to capital.
