Professors Chris and Carol Green provide apostolic oversight, leadership guidance, and spiritual support to Faith Leaders through their Fruitful Life Learning Community. This Learning Community is a unique merging of Personal and Professional Development for Leaders, with an alliance of Families, Home Groups, House Churches and Ministries. Connecting in strategically orchestrated weekly and monthly LIVE video conferencing, Chris and Carol Green resource, equip and empower these leaders, along with their partners, patrons and followers; giving them access to healing for their own hearts and homes, and then the ability to extend their extraordinary transformation to their families, friends, colleagues, neighborhoods and communities.
As a family-supporting initiative, Fruitful Life is 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 on a regular basis; 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.
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
Professors Chris and Carol Green have served in Christian Leadership in the United States (Missouri and Pennsylvania) for a combined 30+ years, and with that priceless wealth of experience, wisdom and insight, they encourage, strengthen and empower people all over the world to fulfill their God-given purpose.
Dr. Raphael Green (D.Ed.Min.) and Pastor Brenda Green 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. They released Chris and Carol Green into their God-ordained purpose in July of 2004.
