Meet Pastor Warren Anderson

pastorandersonmarch06.jpg

Pastor Warren felt the call to pastor when he was 12 years old. He didn't answer the call right away but instead spent 40 years teaching school both at the high school and college level. During 37 of those years, he was a coach for primarily basketball but also soccer.

In 1983, at the age of 44 years, he accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior and was born again. He also received the in-dwelling of the Holy Spirit.

In 1991 when he was 52, the Lord made it clear that He had other plans for Warren rather than to be a teacher and coach.

He began to pursue his licensing in the Foursquare church at that time. Since his academic background had given him most of the required education, he had only to take the senior level courses required of all going into the ministry from Life Bible College.

In 1994, he received his first license called a church license. In 2000 he received his District license and in 2003 he received his International license. Pastor Warren was ordained in April of 2006. He can now carry the Gospel of Jesus Christ anywhere in the world that Foursquare would send him.

However, right now he and Joye are enjoying their appointment here in Petersburg and will stay unless called elsewhere.

Pastor Warren and Joye are blessed with two grown sons, a lovely daughter-in-law and three beautiful granddaughters.

What a blessing Joye is. A good Christian wife and mother who supports every good work that is to be done.
She is always there to lend a cheerful helping hand or word of encouragement to anyone in need. Along the side of her husband, Pastor Warren, she makes hospital visits to encourage the sick and minister to the lost. She is at his side at the nursing home services and in the congregation as he shepherds the flock. Her love for the LORD is always evident and her name fully describes the joy she has in serving our risen Savior.
