Michael and Kelly Green, along with their family have been a part of arts ministry for over 30 years. They began their journey with Field of Dreams Performing Arts Conservatory, Raleigh, NC in the fall of 2006. Their passion is to see the Kingdom of God advanced through the arts. They have given themselves to excellence and exceptionalism in how the arts are embraced and used for a higher purpose. They enjoy watching young and old alike achieve mastery of their specific art's disciplines to affect change in the world. “For too many years, Believers have been afraid to utilize their GOD-given talents for something Big. Often times what is utilized never reaches full maturity because of fear or ignorance.” states Michael, “but there is a fresh push to rise above the norm and be that ‘city on a hill’ and affect change in our communities both regionally and nationally. God is moving and we need to move with Him.”
