James Green

Senior Pastor
 
James and Christina moved from Missouri in March 2015 with their four children (Gavin, Carson, Macy Joy, and Trace ) and a bunch of pets. James graduated from Dallas Theological Seminary, and before answering God’s call to OCC, he served as the Teaching Pastor at Cape Bible Chapel, in Cape Girardeau, MO. Prior to joining the Chapel staff, James spent 5 years as the Area Director for Southeast Missouri Young Life.
 
James is gifted in the areas of teaching and shepherding. He is thrilled to get to love on people and challenge OCC to be the kind of church that is sold out to the mission and vision that God has provided; where we can join God as He transforms the LC Valley, one person at a time.
