My name is Jesse Green. I was born and raised in Middletown, Ohio. I have been at Grace Baptist Church my entire life. My grandpa was the pastor there before I was born and that is was brought me there. God so graciously opened my understanding to the gospel around age five when my great-grandfather shared it with me at my house. I then put my faith in Christ to save me. I continued to grow up in the church and was baptized when I was seven years old. I attended the Christian school that is a ministry of our church, and in third grade God stirred my heart about being a missionary to China. Since then, that is what I have always desired to do. Throughout the years, God has put a lot of people in my life to help me to be more like Jesus.
My name is Hannah Green. I was born and raised in Middletown to a loving family. Our family went to church each Sunday and God was gracious to cultivate a desire in my heart to seek Him. It wasn't until I was 13 that, by God's grace, I understood the weight of my sin and saw my desperate need for a Savior. It was then that I placed my faith in Christ to save me. During my sophomore year of high school I began attending Grace Baptist Church where I was baptized and had many people that began to influence my life and encourage me to grow in my walk with Christ. It was also during this time that God began to bring people and opportunities into my life to point me towards a life in ministry. Although at the time I wasn't sure what that would look like, God has been gracious in leading me to where I am now and I am excited to glorify Him in China.
