I have come across several Christian-based organizations and this one stood out; The Bornelus Foundation: Back To School Expo. This was a community event that was opened to the public, and also provided mini seminars for each age/grade level. There were workshops that taught the children who they are in Christ, school bullying, and self-worth. On August 6, 2016 many lives were changed at the Christ Sanctified Church. It wasn’t because of the free food, free hair cuts, and the free book bags, but because many had an encounter with Christ during this opening service. Everyone meet Clinson Bornelus the CEO & Founder of this event.
