Chris and Carol Green Earn Doctorates in Searcherdemics

Chris and Carol Green, (D.Se)

United Graduate College and Seminary Int'l:  In a historical first, Professors Chris and Carol Green were each conferred a Doctor of Searcherdemics degree during the online ceremony of the UGCSI Searcher Education Summit with its Chancellors and Professors.

"Thank you for giving voice to Holy Spirit experience," expressed Carol Green, the newly credentialed professor to UGCSI's Chief Chancellor, HRH, Sir Clyde Rivers and its Chancellor, Dr. Michal P. Pitzl, who officially bestowed the earned degrees. "And thank you for allowing us the opportunity to change and enrich the world by passing on the knowledge of God and His viewpoint that changes lives in practical and profound ways."

Chancellor Pitzl is the founder and creator of the Searcherdemic Education model which she believes God gave to her, to acknowledge and credential millions of people around the world, whose ideas and visions are lost simply because they don't have the finances or opportunities to navigate through the traditional educational matriculation process. 

"Your life, and the work that you have done, is the most tangible education that I have ever seen," said Chancellor Pitzl. "And if it is not worthy of a doctorate, I don't know what is." 

Searcherdemics is a faith-based education paradigm that fully incorporates one's life experience with their God-given innovative ideas, and a biblical foundation; enabling student/ searchers to do more than observe, study and research, but instead become the case studies and the actually research as they implement their innovations in real time, with real people, in the real world. It is founded on the principle that the Holy Spirit of God is the ultimate Educator. Therefore, students must search out the Godly knowledge and wisdom that will help them produce. 

It has become a new avenue for the innovators who, most likely, would never earn college degrees, even though they completely change the world by impacting industries, disciplines, and the communities in which they serve. Traditionally, the most they could ever hope for was an honorary masters or doctors degree. Searcherdemics says they should receive actual earned credentials because of their dedication, hard work, perseverance, and proven, evidence-based success.

"Thank you for encouraging, equipping and empowering us to move forward in our Searcher journey," Professor Chris Green stated, "We are eternally grateful and honored to receive such a prestigious credential. All glory and praise goes to God alone."

He added, "We love the fact that UGCSI is empowering people who can produce real answers for our world's problems, and this educational method provides an actual, measurable standard of success that can be recognized with comparable credentials that say, 'This Searcherdemician has the expertise and wisdom to successfully implement, teach, duplicate, and defend their philosophy.'"

Chief Chancellor Rivers recalled when he first met the Greens and how they built their God-given ideas into something that government leaders have acknowledged and supported in their community. He called them the poster children for Searcherdemics because we now live in a world that can't wait for 20-years of research before a new idea or methodology can be embraced. The pandemic exposed many of the fundamental, philosophical flaws in nearly every industry and normally it would take decades to respond. However, solutions can come forth NOW, from the Searcherdemicians who are already the embodiment of decades of research, case studies, and success.

"Consider that a prospectus is usually a document that outlines something that doesn't exist, yet it describes what it will become," explains the Greens who have successfully implemented, taught, duplicated and defended their Philosophy of CARE. "Searcherdemics believes you are that prospectus document. Therefore, the searcherdemic model is more than an academic education, business proposal, white paper, or mission statement, but it is a life development philosophy, that prepares you to release God's solutions in real time, and set yourself apart as an effective and creative contributor to your community's success."

The first Doctor of Searcherdemics recipient was Professor Shakuntala Reddy, from Richards Bay, Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa, who initiated a Philosophy of KINDNESS in the education curriculum of the primary school in her community. 

"Congratulations to our three excellent UGCSI leaders who have been building and spreading their Searcherdemic Philosophies for over a decade," stated Chancellor Pitzl, "It was determined that they should be the first recipients in the world to ever be bestowed this newly established doctorate from our institution."

Servants of Christ

 

Chris and Carol Green

Recently, the topic came up about the way titles are being thrown around in church and religious circles. For most of our ministry life we have been called “pastors” Chris and Carol Green, and we have accepted that because we have understood the cultural and societal perceptions of those roles in a local church or faith community. That title reflects a responsibility, but we don't wear it as badge to set ourselves above others.

Sometimes you will hear us refer to our work and assignments in our community as apostolic or prophetic, but we have absolutely refused to refer to ourselves as Apostles Chris and Carol, or Prophet Chris and Prophetess Carol.

Just to set the record straight, the only title we see for ourselves is Servant.  Beyond that, we’re totally fine with being referred to as brother or sister, uncle or aunt, grand pa or grand ma, dad or mom, Mr. or Mrs., or just simply calling us by our given names.

Of course, in some settings, people may feel obliged to refer to us according to our life, educational, ministerial or professional roles, accomplishments, job titles, or other forms of distinction. It's their way of showing respect and honor. We get that. However, for the most part, we echo the words of Paul when he wrote:

“So look at Apollos and me as mere servants of Christ who have been put in charge of explaining God’s mysteries. Now, a person who is put in charge as a manager must be faithful.  As for me, it matters very little how I might be evaluated by you or by any human authority. I don’t even trust my own judgment on this point. My conscience is clear, but that doesn’t prove I’m right. It is the Lord himself who will examine me and decide.” ---1 Corinthians 4: 1-4

No matter what we accomplish or attain in this life, we want to be known by one description: Chris and Carol are mere Servants of Christ. 

We pray the same for you.

I JUST KNOW WE WIN

Excerpt from Our Lyrical Life

This song was written after everything had gone wrong and we didn’t know what else to do.


I just know when life goes wrong

I give a sacrifice of praise

I just know when I’m in a storm

I give a sacrifice of praise

I just know when I’m in a mess

I give a sacrifice of praise

I just know in strife and stress

I give a sacrifice of praise


We win, We win, We win

I lift my voice and say

We win, We win, We win

I praise God anyway

We win, We win, We win

I lift my hands and wave

We win, We win, We win

God has made a way


I just know when I want to give up

I make a sacrifice of praise

I just know it’s better to trust

And make a sacrifice of praise

I just know  when I make the choice

I make a sacrifice of praise

I just know to lift my voice

And make a sacrifice of praise


(Chorus)

SQUARE ONE

Excerpt from Our Lyrical Life


WE WERE FACED WITH DEADLINES 

BEFORE THE BILLS CAME DUE

WE ASKED FOR A MIRACLE FROM GOD, 

BUT THE MORTGAGE FELL THROUGH


I KNOW WHAT THE BIBLE SAID, 

BUT STILL MY DREAM IS DEAD

I CONFESSED THE POSITIVE VERSE, 

MERE WORDS THAT FELL TO EARTH?


SQUARE ONE

DID I REALLY HEAR GOD'S VOICE?

SQUARE ONE

UNDERSTAND WHAT I SAY

SQUARE ONE

HAVE I TOTALLY COUNTED THE COST?

SQUARE ONE

DARED TO TRULY OBEY?


SATAN BRINGS THE EVIL DEEDS. 

DESTROYS AND STEALS WHAT'S OURS

BUT I THOUGHT THIS WAS A TRIAL 

TO SHOW GOD'S OVERCOMING POWER


IS MY MOTIVE SELFISHNESS, 

MY INNER GOAL SIMPLY PRIDE

I WANT TO KNOW FROM THIS DAY ON, 

HOW TO WALK BY GOD'S SIDE

(Chorus)

Rebuild, Restore, Renew (Isaiah 61)

Excerpt from Our Lyrical Life


The Spirit of the Lord has anointed Me

To set the captives free, bring liberty

Through us His Love’s revealed

Broken hearts are healed, Empty lives are filled.


He’s Rebuilding and Restoring

Renewing our Families

Now’s there’s singing, and dancing,

Rejoicing in the city


The Spirit of the Lord has covered me

To heal the pain, take away my grief

Through us His hearts revealed

To wipe away the tears, Drive away the fears

(Chorus)


He’s given us beauty for ashes.

All of the dark days are past tense.

The oil of joy for mourning,

A new day is dawning!


Rebuilding, restoring

Renewing our families,

There’s singing and dancing

Rejoicing in the city


Beauty for ashes

Dark days are past tense

Oil of joy for mourning

A new day is dawning


Chris Green, 2015
