How Holy Spirit’s ‘Secret Sauce’ Brought This Kingdom Leader Success

by | Jun 30, 2021 | Supernatural & Dreams

Ministry assistant. Worship leader. Television ad executive. Business consultant. College professor. Chief operating officer for a restaurant chain. Pastor. Ad agency owner. Dean of the Oral Roberts University School of Business. Kingdom leader Dr. Steve Greene, executive vice president of media and markets for Charisma Media, has had all these jobs and more.

On a recent episode of the Greenelines podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network, Dr. Mark Rutland turns the tables on Greene and interviews him for his own podcast, The Leader’s Notebook. In their wide-ranging discussion, Greene shares the common ingredient—and the Holy Spirit’s “secret sauce”—that has brought him success.

“In all of these jobs, I was where the Lord wanted me,” Greene says. “What I remember about the whole experience is everything led to something else. As I sit her today, every single stop I made along the way contributed to ‘such a time as this.’ It all added up to having the experiences that were going to be needed for what God had planned for me for the future.”

Greene says after spending time ministering to entrepreneurs in Zimbabwe, Africa, he came back convinced he needed to leave business and get back into church ministry, with plans to return to what he called “my Africa.”

The day after he returned, he got a call from a man who needed serious help with his restaurant business.

“I am your Africa,” the man said. “You can’t leave me. I need you to help me with the store, help me to get profitable. My home is on the line here.”

By God’s grace, Greene says, he helped the man bring his business back to life. But he also learned a key lesson: The Lord will send His people to the place that matches their calling. “He sends a worship leader to a church that needs a worship leader. He sent me into a food chain that needed someone who could fix their problems,” Greene says.
