Reverend Robert Greene is originally from Macon where he grew up attending Vineville United Methodist Church. Robert graduated from the Terry College of Business at the University of Georgia in 1997. After four years in the corporate world, Robert clearly sensed the Lord calling him into ministry. In 2001, he entered the Candler School of Theology at Emory University.
Soon after making the decision to attend seminary, Robert met the former Kate Booth of Athens at a Bible study in Atlanta. They married in 2002 and have joyfully served in The United Methodist Church since then. Robert and Kate have three children: William, Lauren, and Caroline.
A lifelong Methodist, Robert has served multiple appointments in the South Georgia Conference. Robert is currently serving in his fifteenth year as a Senior Pastor.
Robert also answered the call from the Lord in 2011 to serve in the military as a Chaplain in the United States Air Force Reserve. He continues to serve as a Chaplain augmenting active duty personnel currently at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Alabama. In his spare time Robert enjoys traveling, golfing, playing guitar, and reading.
