Servants of Christ

"We were not called to reach the masses. We were called to reach the misses. God sent us to connect with those who were overlooked, ignored, passed over, or they fell through the cracks in our homes, communities and churches. Most of our gatherings are small, but they have great impact. We're not here to build a big ministry. We're here to build people who will do big things for God." - Chris and Carol Green

 

Pastors Chris and Carol Green are community servants and from this role they are life educators in Civility, Searcherdemics and Spiritual Wellness, certified professional master life coaches, leadership consultants, international statesmen, ordained ministers, songwriters, poets, authors, contributing authors to an international best-seller, students of Biblical text, and people who are passionate about prayer. They are also traditional marriage and family advisors, holistic wellness promoters, human value advocates, and trained in compassionate listening.

 

Having been through times of unemployment, home foreclosure, homelessness, car repossession; been targets of theft, fraud, betrayal, character smearing and swindle; been denied, detoured, delayed, disappointed, disillusioned, discouraged, and battled through the mental and emotional wear and tear that comes with life's setbacks; they know what it means to live in bitter seasons, and to have to pray, plan, wait, work and rise again; again and again. 

 

They have served in pastoral roles in the United States (Missouri and Pennsylvania) over 30 years. Inspired to demonstrate leadership by example, they stepped outside of traditional religious settings and facilities to directly connect with their community.  Now, from a priceless wealth of experience, wisdom and insight, they encourage, empower and equip other servant-leaders in business, community outreach, government, education, human services, households, families, neighborhoods and ministries.

 

Their community-supporting initiatives have included hosting monthly workshops in an unemployment center, on-call life coaching support for the staff of a women's emergency shelter, consultation and training for local outreach organizations, and collaborating with various community outreach efforts.

Their cooperation of international and local partnerships has been essential to their work with professionals and volunteers who labor in under-served communities, and all who are seeking to inspire a higher and greater purpose for living.

They have been under-the-radar leaders and intercessors in an international phenomenon in which people of faith have been moving, by the thousands, out of their traditions and buildings to take God's healing and hope to their personal and professional communities.
