Rev. Cornelius Holland is seen praying for people who came forward in need at the recent Exodus Homes and Exodus Missionary Outreach Church Community Outreach event on Saturday March 5, 2011 at the Brown Penn Gym in Hickory. The Exodus ministry drew a crowd of approximately 300 people, giving away free food, clothes, furniture, Bibles, information from the PPC Healthcare Co-op, blood pressure checks, haircuts, manicures, voter registration, and free HIV testing by ALFA. Several Exodus Homes residents gave moving testimonies of their recovery from addicton or incarceration. Volunteers from the faith-based United Way supportive housing program and the church took prayers requests from individuals, and Rev. Holland led the corporate prayer for all those who came to the front with special needs at the end of the program. The ministry has done outreach events like this for the past 14 years, and is committed to meeting concrete needs as a means of helping people learn about resources and get help for their problems.
