Pastor Neahe A. Miller grew up in Portland, Oregon as the oldest of three boys raised by a single mother. Growing up with little guidance and surrounded with drug paraphernalia, Neahe began to sell drugs at the tender age of nine years old. Not long after, Neahe began to hang out with the gang members in his neighborhood and soon found himself going down the wrong path.
At the age of eleven Neahe was placed in Foster Care where he would spend the next few years as his mother fought to overcome a drug addiction. Too old to live in the Drug Rehab Center with his Mother and younger siblings, Neahe found himself separated from his family and longing for a place to belong.
At the age of thirteen Neahe visited a youth church and heard about the power of Jesus for the first time. The thought of Jesus sounded appealing to Neahe but it wasn't enough to cause him to change his life and surrender it to Jesus Christ at the time.
Reunited with his family at the age of fourteen as his Mother celebrated three years of sobriety, Neahe finally began to feel like his life was going in the right direction and at the age of fifteen he asked Jesus to be his Lord and Savior.
Over the years Neahe struggled to live a righteous lifestyle and soon found himself dealing drugs and hanging out with old friends again. Neahe became depressed and felt insignificant despite his mother’s attempts to surround him with positive male role models and mentors.
In 2001 Neahe graduated from Jefferson High School where he met his lovely wife Nedra. As two of them dated for the next year, Nedra constantly encouraged Neahe to give Jesus a legitimate try. A year later while hanging out at a park with friends, Neahe all of a sudden lost his feeling of complacency and went to sit on a bench away from his friends. It was at the moment that Neahe surrendered his life to Jesus Christ. After many lonely nights of hurt and pain, Neahe finally found his release and sense of love and acceptance that he longed for his entire life. Not long after Neahe married the love of his life, Nedra Miller at the age of nineteen.
Neahe is a worshiper at heart who is sincere with his gift and diligent in his service with it. The very Gospel that saved and transformed his life is the very same Gospel that gives him the inspiration to write and recite his Poetry/Spoken Word. With a heart for the people like no other, and a rough upbringing that involved the streets of gang life, his testimony is one that inspires hope in others who may be society’s castaways.
Neahe Ashain uses his gift to inspire other believers to chase after Christ and be unashamed of the Gospel, and to encourage unbelievers to believe in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
His humility and contentment in being a servant alone is evident as this leaders’ evangelistic spirit is one that drives others to catch fire. Through conviction and compassion, he conveys the message of life in Christ through exhortation, poetry, and music and sets the bar for any artist going for Godly impact in the hip hop culture.
Now Neahe and Nedra Miller have been married for 15 years and serve as Associate Pastors at According to His Word Worship Center-Vancouver. Pastor Neahe and Nedra Miller seek to please God in all they do. Their hope is that God will get the glory in every aspect of their lives.
