Liz Green

Independent Board Member

Princeton University '84

Liz (Stevenson) Green grew up in Niagara Falls, New York. She is the daughter of a Presbyterian minister and learned from her mom and dad to love studying the Bible. She graduated from Princeton University in 1984 with a degree in politics.

At Princeton, Liz was involved in the Princeton Evangelical Fellowship. Upon graduation, Liz worked with Campus Crusade for Christ, now known as Cru, both in Eastern Europe and recruiting for missions on US campuses.

Liz then joined campus staff ministry with Cru at Cornell where she became friends with Matt Bennett. After Cornell, she joined the campus staff at Dartmouth where she met and married her husband, Howard, a doctor and graduate of the US Naval Academy. Liz left Cru staff in 1993. She and Howard had five children, then adopted a baby from China, followed by a sibling group of four from Ethiopia, and finally a sibling group of two, also from Ethiopia. Nine years ago, Liz, Howard, and their 12 children moved to Winchester, Virginia, where they currently reside.

Over the years. Liz has led women’s Bible studies as well as youth and young adult groups. She regularly mentors young women, helping to ground them in the Scriptures and in their walks with Christ. She and Howard periodically lead engaged and married couples through pre- and post-marital counseling.

Liz loves Jesus’ parable about the kingdom of God as a mustard seed from Mark 4:31-32 and Paul’s commission to Timothy in II Timothy 2:2, “and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also,” since they typify the normal way every believer can be part of God’s plan to reach the world with his love and truth.
