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.
