Servants of Christ

"We were not sent to reach the masses. We were sent 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 quite small, but they have had effective impact. We're not here to build a big ministry. We're building PEOPLE who will do big things for GOD." - Chris and Carol Green

 

Pastors Chris and Carol Green see themselves as servant leaders and modern-day missionaries within their own country and community. From these role they are life educators, certified master life coaches, international leadership advisors, consultants, adjunct professors and statesmen, traditional marriage enrichment and resiliency facilitators, holistic wellness promoters, human value advocates, ordained and commissioned pastors, and they're trained and certified in lay-counseling and mental health coaching. 

 

Having been through times of unemployment, home foreclosure, and homelessness; 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 and led by God to demonstrate servant-leadership by example, they stepped outside of traditional religious settings and facilities to directly connect with and serve their community. Their community-supporting initiatives have included volunteering and hosting monthly workshops in an unemployment center, on-call life coaching support and monthly training for the staff of a women's emergency shelter, consultation and training for local human service organizations, and collaborating with various community outreach efforts.

 

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

Chris and Carol's ministry travels have taken them from coast to coast in the United States, to Hawaii, the Bahamas, Trinidad, the United Kingdom, and West Africa. 

 

They have been happily married over 40 years and have successfully raised three sons. They have two daughters-in-law, two grand children, and a host of people throughout the world who call them 'mom and dad'.  They are a husband-wife team who were commissioned to rebuild, restore and renew hearts and homes.

 

Chris and Carol Green are not affiliated with any political party, religious dogma, or 'bandwagon' social movements. 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.
