Fruitful Life is a prayer-focused ministry of loving oversight, guidance, and support for home-gathering churches, faith communities and families. We identify best with people who have no faith tradition, and those who seek a non-traditional faith practice.
We are patterned after the 1st-century Followers of Christ, who continued steadfast in the Apostle's teaching and fellowship, in Breaking of Bread, and in Prayers. They met privately in their homes and corporately as a community; and they took care of widows, orphans and the poor, while experiencing miraculous signs and wonders. In its DNA, Fruitful Life carries the Ephesians 4 directive of equipping and empowering Believers to do the work of ministry and service.
Fruitful Life also resources Believers through its accredited online institution; giving them practical instruction, Biblical wisdom and spiritual insight for receiving healing within their own hearts and homes, and then the ability to share their extraordinary transformation with others.
Before there was a religion called Christianity, there was a movement known as THE WAY. Chris and Carol Green launched the Fruitful Life Learning Community as an intentional effort to help people of faith and Christian leaders return to that simple mission and lifestyle that demonstrates God's love and healing to hearts and homes.
Our Mission Statement: "(WE) will rebuild the ancient ruins, restore the places long devastated, and renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations." ---Isaiah 61:4
Chris & Carol Green
Founders and Leaders
Chris and Carol Green have served in pastoral leadership in the United States (Missouri and Pennsylvania) for 30+ years, and with that priceless wealth of experience, wisdom and insight, they encourage Believers to embrace prayer-focused lives and prayer-centered lifestyles.
Chris and Carol Green were officially released into their God-ordained purpose in July of 2004, through the apostolic oversight of Bishop, Dr. Raphael Green (D.Ed.Min.) and Pastor Brenda Green who pioneered a strategic, relevant, transformational church (Metro Christian Worship Center) and community outreach (Metro Associates, Inc.) in St. Louis, MO.
Long before their city came onto the international scene due to the events in Ferguson, this man and woman were working in the trenches and making a powerful impact in inner city neighborhoods and communities; and have done so for more than 40 years.
Always operating under the radar and out of the spotlight, they have been true models of what it takes to invest in lives in the urban world.
Part of their urban world mandate is to train and establish competent, creative, compassionate and committed men and women in urban centers across the U.S. and the world.
