ONTERIO & CRYSTAL GREEN
Pastor Onterio and Crystal met while they were students in college. Shortly after they married and started a family. They attended Christ For the Nations Institute In Dallas Texas and soon after graduating they jumped into full-time staff ministry roles serving local churches nationwide. Most recently, they served as staff associate Pastors at The Potters House of Dallas.
Pastor Onterio‘s passion to serve the local church as an evangelist led him to worldwide travel as a full-time itinerary speaker in 2019. One of the cities he visited while traveling was Tampa Florida. There is where he heard the voice of God speak to him about the future of his family and starting Courageous Church. Pastor Onterio and Crystal have three beautiful children and have been serving in full-time ministry for over 17 years.
Our vision is to see Courage rise in the hearts of all people through the love of God, faith in God, serving others, and building community.
In all our beliefs we show LOVE!
Christ followers are GENEROUS!
The Bible is our AUTHORITY!
We live to SERVE like Christ Jesus!
We will strive to be DIVERSE in every way, just like heaven!
OUR 12 STONES
In our songs, at our services, with our words, and with our lives! We celebrate and share the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ in a way people can understand.
All of them! Backgrounds, shapes, colors, sizes, education levels, salaries, single, married, young, old, churched, de-churched, or unchurched.
The poisons of gossip, complaining, backbiting, discord, and division are NOT welcome here. Nor will they be tolerated.
With a posture of generosity, we give our time in service, groups, and activities. We believe that being in church is an intentional priority that is valued.
The poor, the orphan, the lost, the broken, the abandoned, and the forgotten are close to God's heart and we want them close to our heart as well.
We are on a path to see every part of our lives (speech, finances, sexuality, insecurities, fears, triumphs, etc.) conformed to the character of Christ.
We are agents of change in this world. Designed by God to carry out His mission of new life in every aspect of our culture (business, arts & entertainment, education, media, government, etc.)
To those we lead, we work beside and those we follow. The cross gives EVERY human being immeasurable worth and we will treat people with the honor the cross displays and demands they deserve.
Because God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble. We seek to agree fully with everything God says about us. False humility and overbearing pride can cripple the church.
Our goal in every relationship as Christ followers is to give life to everyone we encounter. People should leave us feeling alive, encouraged, loved, and empowered!
We lead in giving of time, talents, and resources! We believe in having an open heart and hand to those we serve around us.
Our confidence and competence is not based on our skill and talent, but on the glorious victory of our Savior Jesus Christ. Whom through His death, burial, and resurrection defeated darkness and redeemed the world. His victory is now our victory, which gives us the courage to lead in our homes, jobs, schools, community, and everywhere.
