Pastor Greene is a firm believer that no vision from God can be accomplished on human ingenuity or muscle alone but it must be carried out by every member of that body. His favorite verse is 1 Peter 5:2 which says, “Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind…….And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.
