At eight years old I received Jesus Christ as my Lord and savior. Never have I had a friend so faithful. Truly He will never leave us or forsake us! At age ten I was introduced to the third person of the trinity, the Precious Holy Spirit. What an experience! What a joy to step into a new realm of prayer and be able to pray as I had never prayed before. Being enabled by the Holy Spirit I can now pray according to the perfect will of God. The Holy Spirit is now revealing to me how much Father God loves me, my inheritance and who I am in Christ! God loves unconditionally! The Holy Spirit is now revealing how much Father God loves me, my inheritance and who I am in Christ. GOD LOVES ME UNCONDTIONALLY! The world must know our Father God this way. The Church must illuminate His love through us.
I married the love of my life, Helen, in 1968. Together we served as Youth Pastors and Associate Pastors until I was ordained in 1973, through Church of The New Life in Oklahoma City, by Pastor U. L. Harshfield and Rev. Kenneth Copeland ministering the ordination message. The Lord moved us to pastor in two churches prior to establishing Messiah Ministries Church in Oklahoma City, OK, in 1981. Rev. Dennis Green and his wife, Leslie, joined with us as Associate Pastors. God called Leslie to the ministry and she was ordained. Now, 30years later, we’re working together and believe that our greatest years are still ahead!
Associate Pastors Dennis and Leslie Green
While leaving in Perry, Oklahoma Dennis and Leslie Green attended a youth rally in Ponca City, where a young minister Johnny Ore was preaching a message on Mountain Moving Faith. The message so stirred Dennis that he literally ran to the altar to rededicated his life to the Lord. Dennis said, "It was the first time he had heard someone preach on what a person could do and not on all the do's and dont's of Christianity." That one night youth rally turned into a 8 month revival move of the Holy Spirit in the northern part Oklahoma, which Dennis and Leslie along with their two small children at the time didn't miss a night.
Revs. Dennis and Leslie have been married for 43 years and have served faithfully as Associate Pastors of Messiah Ministries Church for 29 years. Both have been involved in the ministry as Youth Pastors, Sunday School Teachers,
Prison Ministry, taught Fundamental Bible studies, held share groups and Bible Studies in their home. Their motto is whatever the need or wherever we can best serve You Lord use us. They believe every joint in the Body of Christ has purpose and must supply and support the ministry. Their desire is along with Pastor Johnny and Helen Ephesians 4:12-13 "For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ; till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man...:"
