Rev. Burnette Greene is a native of Maywood, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. In 1998 she was ordained by Shiloh Baptist Church, Washington, D.C., where she served as executive minister and associate pastor as well as executive director of Shiloh’s Family Life Center. She has served as pastor of Irving Park Baptist Church, Chicago, interim pastor of Twinbrook Baptist Church, part-time pastor of Congregational Life at Wisconsin Avenue Baptist Church, and interim pastor at Covenant Baptist United Church of Christ.

“Churches should be a vital force in their communities by faithfully sharing the Good News of Christ through both word and action,” said Rev. Burnette Greene. “My desire is to inspire believers to become the beautiful people that God always intends us to be, and to help turn the powerful force of faith into actions that will make a better world for all of God’s people.”
