Pastor Warren received his formal education from American Baptist College, University of Michigan, and Wayne State University. Pastor Warren currently holds a Master’s degree in the area of Social Work, and a minor degree in the area of political science.
Pastor Warren lived a rough and challenging life in the streets of Flint, MI. Pastor Warren spent 5 years of his life selling drugs, running in gangs, carrying guns, and committing hideous criminal acts that brought about a lot of hurt to himself and many others. However, between the years of 1992-93 Pastor Warren decided to put the drugs, guns and violence down, and decided to turn his life around for the greater good. With limited leadership and help available to him, this turn for the good was everything but easy for Pastor Warren. Pastor Warren had to fight for his liberation, and he did so in spite of all the challenges and obstacles he faced along the way. Ultimately Pastor Warren was able to leave the lifestyle that was geared towards destroying himself and others, and he began following a more positive role in life.
In December of 1993, Pastor Warren went from being a hardcore, dope dealing, gun carrying gangster, to becoming a mouthpiece of hope to the same environment he once invested negativity in. Pastor Warren used his liberation to go back and help other individuals who were both mentally and physically screaming for help.
Pastor Warren continues to fight for those who can’t fight for themselves. Pastor Warren has made it his business to bring about change in our society at whatever cost the price may be. Pastor Warren is respected nationwide, and many have acknowledged that wherever he is, his presence brings about an atmosphere of peace, hope, encouragement.
Pastor Warren is married to his loving wife Natasha Warren, and together they parent four spirit-filled and charismatic children: Angelique, Martez Jr., Martavius, and Te’Avion. They are the proud grandparents of one, Jayden Martez Capers.
