A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out - Walter Winchell

This quote reminds me a dear friend as we worked side by side to either put down or stack up hundreds of  sanctuary chairs to prepare for Sunday morning and Wednesday evening church service. In those critical moments to prepare the sanctuary for God’s people, Mr. Cornelius Harrison III was always present to help the facilities ministry.  Many times he was one of the first brothers on site and one of the last to leave and because of his service, I will always be indebted to him and his family.  In this Trending Leader feature, we celebrate Mr. Harrison not only for his work in the community but also his talent as an artist, as he is blazing new trails in the Christian music industry.  Cornelius is a singer/rapper/song writer and also an author of soon to be released books “Identifying the True You: Discovering and Encountering Who You Are in God” and “They Are Men of Power: You are Made Strong in Your Weakness”.  His recent projects include, “Oh My Jesus” which is his first Single & Music Video. He graduated from The University of Phoenix with a Bachelor of Science in Business degree and is CEO/owner of Harrison Powerhouse Publishing, LLC.  Cornelius currently works at the International Longshoreman Association as a crane operator. He was born in Houston, Texas and currently lives in Pearland, Texas with his wife of 11 years, who is a Hospital Administrator/ Registered Nurse and a 5-time cancer survivor. 

Q: Congratulations  on your recent single “Oh My Jesus”.  What was your concept or inspiration to do this project? Cornelius:
