The best think to do is to the DMV with your passport showing the visa stamped or the approval notice (I797 i think). with this even you don;t have a Social Security Number you can get your driver license.
And for apply to a Greencard from a R visa. If he can prove 2 years working continuously for the same church will be able to get the Green Card. The documents for a EB4 (Religious visa) is very similar to the documents to get the R visa (the church need to show that the petitioner works for them and the pastor show his taxes)
