About the Green's
DR. RALPH W. GREEN, II; B. A., TH. B., M. DIV., D.MIN.
Dr. Green has been in the ministry for over 50 years, thirty four years of which has been with Word of Life Local Church Ministries in various capacities. He now serves as missionary with Word of Life Fellowship, Inc in the area of Extended Ministries to Churches. He works with churches throughout the United States in areas where there are no local WOL Missionaries close enough for personal service. He and his wife, Louise reside in Bedford County near Lynchburg, Virginia where they are active members of Heritage Baptist Church in Lynchburg, VA.
Having lost both parents as a child at eight years of age, Rev. Green lived in numerous foster homes. At ten years of age he was placed in Boys' Home in Covington, Virginia where he lived for six years. He became a Christian at the age of sixteen and shortly after that was called by God to the gospel ministry. He was instrumental in starting a Bible Club at Covington High School and was elected as its president. At the age of seventeen, in his senior year, he preached his first sermon to the student body and faculty of Covington High School.
Rev. Green served as pastor for fourteen years and has preached in eighteen states of America and nine foreign counties. He holds two Bachelor Degrees, one in History and one in Theology. He spent seventeen years in training at Appalachian Bible College, Bryan College, Grace College, Grace Theological Seminary, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary and Louisiana Baptist Theological Seminary through which he received his M. Div. and Doctor of Ministry Degree..
In 1985, Rev. Green was inducted into Delta Epsilon Chi Honor Society. In January of 2000 he assisted Steve Nicholes in starting a Discipleship School in Korea known as S.Y.M.E. (School of Youth Ministries In English). In 2005 he was inducted into The Boys' Home Hall of Fame. In 2006 he received a certificate for completion of Evangelism Explosion through Heritage Baptist Church and Coral Ridge Ministries.
For a half a century Rev. Green has had as an "assistant" in his ministry, a young fellow with a wooden head that sleeps in a suitcase. His name is Danny DoLittle. This ventriloquist dummy is a great attraction to young and old alike.
Dr. Green married Louise Ruth Wegner, daughter of a missionary. Rev. & Mrs. Green have two children, Ralph, III who is a pastor in Bel Air, MD and Rhonda who, along with her husband, are missionaries in Asia with Word of Life. The Greens have nine grandchildren and a great-grandchild on the way.Dr. and Mrs. Green have a passion for serving the Lord and His people and reaching the lost.
Support The Green's
One of the key things a missionary must do is raise his needed support.
Perhaps we can better describe it in the terms of a sports game. Any game, if it is to be real and successful, must have the following:
Former NFL Football Coach of the Miami Dolphins, Don Shula, said this: "The one-man team is a complete and total myth."
We realize we cannot do it by ourselves, so we are endeavoring... to build a team.
- The majority of people (that's the unsaved) are eternally lost and desperately need to know the Savior.
- The missionaries (that's us) are the players and have the experience and training.
- The mainstays are the partners (that's you) who are enthusiastic about prayer and finances. Without this aspect, there would still be a mission field... but no missionary.
However, when it comes to life, it's not just a game. Remember this:
"The way a team plays as a whole determines its success." - George Herman "Babe" Ruth
