Cary Green grew up in a loose Catholic home near Lake Tapps, Washington. While attending Western Washington University, he got saved, by the grace of God! Even as a new believer he knew God was calling him to the ministry, so after college he attended The Master’s Seminary in Sun Valley, California. While there, he met his wife, Lois, and a year after graduating, he and his family left for nearly ten years of ministry in East Berlin. During those years they helped to plant a church (Bible Church of Berlin) and establish a Bible school (European Bible Training Center), both of which are still going strong today. The LORD moved the Green family back to the USA in 2009, where Cary again became involved in planting a church–originally called Everett Bible Church, now Cornerstone Bible Church. It is his joy and privilege to pastor this congregation. Cary and Lois have fourteen children.

A 2011 graduate of Heartland Baptist Bible College, he is currently pursuing a B.D. through the University of London International Programs. He married his wife, Ashley, in 2012 and they have two children; Peter and Chloe. Peter’s desire is to discover, love, and apply truth and to equip others to do the same. Besides spending time with his family, he enjoys reading and cooking.
