Being united in matrimony to Karen L. Rice on May 23, 1998, he is blessed to have a beautiful and supportive wife who stands beside him 100% in his ministry. They have four children to this marriage.
Sunday, November 7, 2004, Pastor Burnice and Elect Lady Karen Green became the founders of God’s Vision Ministries. They began this ministry with a handful of pioneers and God continues to bring the increase. To God be the Glory!
Pastor Green understands at a young age the trials & tribulations to come and have learned to look beyond all of that to see the great reward that God has waiting for him. Through all the degrees and honors he has received, none is more precious than the degree and honor of God’s presence in his life. I know I must work the works of him who sent me!
Remember only what you do for God is going to last!
Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, Bishop Green will not be hosting any speaking engagements. We pray that in 2022, we will be able to worship together again.
