About Cornelius Corps

Our name is inspired by the Biblical story of Cornelius and Peter in the book of Acts (10:1 – 11:18).  Through visions given by God, these two men were able to transcend boundaries of race, culture, and privilege by the power of the Holy Spirit.

We believe that God is still calling and empowering us to this journey of racial justice/reconciliation and spiritual formation.
