A lifelong resident of Long Beach, California, Beverly Broadus-Green has been a lot of things to a lot of people. She spent 42 years as a church choir director, was the loving wife of Howard Green before his death in 2005, and earned a living as a head chef before her retirement. Her specialty dish is cheese and macaroni (not the other way around), because that’s what her four sons and six grandchildren never seem to get enough of, especially her son Cordozar Calvin Broadus, better known as Snoop Dogg. But after years of serving so many people, on Easter Sunday 2005 Broadus-Green accepted her true calling to serve the Lord. Now she’s an ordained evangelist who travels the country doing her part to build the Kingdom of God. Her primary passion is helping battered women.

“I’m blessed with the discernment to pick up on abusive relationships,” said Broadus-Green, adding that helping women and girls is a way for her to help others avoid some of the issues she endured in past relationships. When her children were younger, Broadus-Green’s home was the ‘open house’ of the neighborhood. She spent a lot of time trying to keep her sons – and other young men – out of gangs and away from drugs.

That’s why her latest project, YouthBloc.com,is so important.YouthBloc.com is a non-profit 501-c3 designed to teach young people how to start successful businesses, solve problems and apply for business loans. Broadus-Green said it’s not enough to tell youth just to say no to drugs and gangs, “they have to have something to say ‘yes’ to and focus on,” she said. Her partner, Marvin Fredlaw says YouthBloc.com is a much needed program in urban areas because public schools do little to teach students how to become entrepreneurs.

“In this economy, [starting your own] business instead of depending on a job is important,” said Fredlaw. Broadus-Green and Fredlaw encourage parents to partner with their children to bring their entrepreneurial dreams to reality. For young people who already have a viable business, YouthBloc.com will promote their service or product through its e-commerce website. Although YouthBloc.com is in its infancy, the duo plans to take it across the country by partnering with celebrities and local politicians.

Broadus-Green is also part of the cast of the upcoming reality show “Women Pastors – Ladies In the Pulpit.” The show will reveal the incredible challenges faced by female pastors who must balance the responsibilities of home, work and church amid the scrutiny of family members, parishioners and outsiders. “Women Pastors – Ladies In the Pulpit” is expected to premier in early 2013. This weekend, Broadus-Green speaks at the Mt. Zion church in Wilmer Texas on Sunday morning at the 10 a.m, service, then appears at the First Sundays event  in Arlington, Texas at 3316 Merrilee Drive (off Davidson Road, behind the racetrack.) from 2-7 p.m.

    Black women like this Sister Evangilist Green is doing her best to look White by dying her hair blond like many other sisters.
    Why are many of us trying to still please Our Former White “Massas?”
    We must get rid of this slave mentality before we get free.
    In 25 years from now 50% of America will be non White , Why are we still trying to act like obedient Slaves Lap Dogs for “Massa?”
    Are Black women trying to look White in order to attract Black men who prefer White Women? or are they tired of Black men and trying to ‘Whiten” the Black races by getting impregnated by White Men just like Black Men with loww self esteem?

    @ just want to be. Just because her immediate family will not listen to the word, does that mean she has to sit at home and not help anyone else.

    I think that is great, I thought the article was going to be about a restaurant that she was opening. I have been to every soul food restaurant in La, and it’s just sad when black people can’t make a pot of greens.
