Bishop Dr. Burnice B. Green, Sr. was born in Rochester, New York, to the late Burnice Green and Annie Ruth Green, and he is the second youngest of 15 children. He is the founder and Bishop of God’s Vision Ministries on the northeast side of Rochester, New York. Being blessed to hold revivals and speak at various churches throughout the Rochester area and the country has left a God-sent impression on congregations who have heard him. Being united in matrimony to Karen L. Rice on May 23, 1998, he is blessed to have a beautiful, supportive wife who stands beside him 100% in his ministry. They have three children in this marriage.
In 2004, Dr. Green was selected by his local newspaper, the Democrat and Chronicle, as one of the top 10 Emerging African-American Leaders in Western New York. In addition, he received the Distinguished Rochester Education Foundation Award for making a difference in the lives of people in his community. In 2013, Burnice received the distinguished award as the New York State Administrator of the Year and was selected to represent New York State at the National Board of Educational Administrators held in Washington, D.C. As a servant leader, Dr. Green, in 2016, received a special Mayoral Recognition Award for the highest achievement for unpaid community outreach volunteer service. In addition, in 2017, he was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award by President Barack Obama for his lifelong commitment to building a stronger nation through volunteer work.
Dr. Green is currently the Assistant Principal at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. School #9, overseeing a prestigious Boys Academy. He attended this school district as a child, from which he successfully graduated. Dr. Green attended SUNY Brockport College from 1988 to 1992 and graduated with a Bachelor’s in Communications in the year 1992. He continued his studies at SUNY Brockport from 1992-1995 and graduated with a Master of Science degree in 1995.

In 2010, Dr. Green became the founder of a distinguished male academy at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. School No. 9. As a result of his work, he received The City of Rochester Black Heritage Pioneer for Education Award. The male academy promotes self-sufficiency, making good choices, empowering, and providing opportunities for males to be heard and understood. Through this work, Dr. Green continues to promote the importance of males of color graduating from high school and exposing this problem that faces the nation.
Dr. Green hopes to leave a legacy for his family to stick together, look for the best in each other, and always support each other in times of need. For his community members, he hopes they are willing to serve and leave things in better condition than they found them. Bishop Dr. Green understood at a young age the trials & tribulations to come and has learned to look beyond all of that to see the great reward 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!
