Butch & Nell Green, church training, Muslim focus, Houston, TX
After long-term ministry among Muslims in Senegal and Belgium, the Greens are continuing a strategic ministry to help teach North American churches how to care for Muslim immigrants in their own communities. From their home base in Houston, the Greens develop relationships with churches in Texas and surrounding states, helping North American churches reach out in love to their Muslim neighbors and become a welcoming place for believers of Muslim background.
The Greens help churches discern how God could be leading their congregations to respond. In time, the Greens hope to help churches develop fully formed, multidisciplinary ministries to meet the needs of internationals, share the gospel of Christ and become effective global partners.
