In 1992, Ken began an associate ministry at Central Christian in Bristol, TN. He completed a Master’s of Ministry at Kentucky Christian College and a M. Ed. at Milligan college during this ministry.
God opened the door in 1997 for Ken to begin teaching at the college level with a position at Crossroads College (formerly Minnesota Bible College) in Rochester, MN. Ken developed a Youth and Family Ministries and Studies Major. This institution, under his leadership, was the first Bible College to be certified by the National Council of Family Relations. He also was on the board of the Minnesota Christian Evangelism Association for six years and was involved in two church plants. He also began an Ed.

His dissertation is a case study of Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, KY entitled “A Case Study Evaluating the Effectiveness of a Particular Mega Church’s Ability to Develop Christ-Centered Living in its Members.” In the fall of 2007, Dr. Greene also began serving MACU as the Vice President for Student Services.
Publications include a chapter on “Family Ministry” in Foundations in Christian Education and “Children’s Ministry: Building a Firm Foundation” in Unleashing the Potential of the Smaller Church which was co-written with his wife.
