Welcome to the Cornelius Project
The Cornelius Project is an outreach to law enforcement officers.
WHAT IS THE CORNELIUS PROJECT?
The Cornelius Project is an outreach to law enforcement officers. We are very much aware of the present tension that exist in the lives of police officers.
Our objective is to provide resources that can equip officers with the tools that make them better at their job, as well as helping them in responding to the challenges that comes from their profession.
WHO WAS CORNELIUS?
Cornelius was a 1st century Roman Centurion: a soldier and a law enforcement officer. He was stationed in Caesarea.
He was over an Italian Regiment, with about 100 men under his command.
Cornelius was known for his sense of duty, his commitment to his family, and more (read more about Cornelius)
LIVE AND ONLINE EVENTS
In the last few years, we have conducted hundreds of seminars across the country (about 40 states). COVID had an effect on our seminars, however, beginning in 2021, we will resume live events around the country (online and in person).
Our speakers will be exceptional individuals who have “been through the fire.” Some of them you know very well. The topics covered will be relevant to today’s police.
WOULD YOU BE INTERESTED IN HOSTING OUR "ON SPIRITUAL COMBAT" SEMINAR? The seminar is not only for police officers, but everyone in your church.
Fellow officer: if you get into a situation where you have to use deadly force, do you have access to an attorney?
US LAW SHIELD offers such coverage to police for only $10.95 a month. Not all cities have such coverage for their officers. We can help. Text "help" to 817.437.9693 and we will send you the info.
VIDEO: In July of 2016, FIVE police officers were shot to death in downtown Dallas. I (Jimmy Meeks) was in Dallas the night this took place. Some of the Cowboy players wanted to honor the officers, but were denied (a decal on the helmet, or something similar. The NFL, not the Cowboys admin, denied the request). I happen to be in Seattle when the Cowboys came to town. I went to the game (thanks to a Seattle cop friend) and proudly displayed my sign.
Fellow Officers – I am asking you to listen to this message in the video above. I have shared it with hundreds of police officers through the years.
I know you probably have a lot on your plate. But I am begging you to listen to this message. You will have questions afterwards. We can be reached at 817.437.9693.

WE ARE STANDING WITH YOU!
In addition to our outreach to police officers, we also assist churches and faith-based properties in creating safe atmospheres. We have conducted about 400 such seminars.
We also have a program where we help churches be prepared for violent crimes on their property (active shooter training, training for your safety team, and prevention of sex crimes) These are called Sheepdog Seminars for Churches. To learn more, go to our Sheepdog Seminar website.
In 2017, a “new record” was set for violent deaths on church and faith-based property – 114. That includes the tragedy in Sutherland Springs (1st Baptist) where 46 worshipers were shot – 26 died.
Our seminar also address the issue of sex crimes on church and faith-based property, and what we must do to stop them.

The movie is called Faith Under Fire (click on button below photo to watch trailer).
