Gospel Music FanFair Welcomes Steve Warren

Gospel Music FanFair welcomes Steve Warren, at The Center for Rural Development, Somerset KY.

At the young age of five the love of music was birthed in Steve Warren’s life. As a young child he began playing drums and singing with his family. When God called him into a ministry of his own, he not only continued proclaiming the gospel through song, but the Word of God as well.

Young Steve with his family. As a young pastor in southwest Virginia, his love for music began to deepen. He began working at local radio stations WXMY and WOLD, where he remained a disc jockey for fifteen years until he became owner. During this time Brother Steve created what is known today as the Gospel Sound Radio Show. Which is an hour radio show featuring “some of the best in southern gospel music”, whether it be local talent or well-known artists. This program became syndicated to radio stations and later became a television program.

Brother Steve saw the need for southern gospel music in the area and with that he began promoting gospel groups, which he remains doing today. The local areas began seeing groups such as The Spencer’s, The Singing Cookes, Kevin Spencer & Friends, and the Perry Sisters.

In 2001 Steve joined Sims Records located in Nashville, TN. It wasn’t until this time that he had ever been part of a record label of this prestige. In 2004 a song that Steve wrote along with his wife, “Heaven on Her Mind” became a #1 song in the Christian Country National Charts.

Rev. Warren was given the honor in June of 2004 to be nominated and chosen by gospel music fans all over America as Favorite Male Vocalist at the Music City Gospel Showcase and Convention, which is held annually in Pigeon Forge, TN.

Over the past several years God has blessed Steve by placing many chart-topping singles within his hands. According to the Singing News Charts, songs such as “His Love Ran Down the Cross” #47, Somewhere Between Mercy and Grace” # 27, “I’m Still Leaning on the Everlasting Arms” #21, “Banks of the River” #19, “Those Same Hands” #16, “Those Three Old Rusty Nails” #15, “The Old Path” #28, “On A Hill Where Mercy Met Grace” #30, “Let’s Put God Back in America” #32 & “Dying To Live” # 46 are songs that not only contain a good melody or fancy wording, but a message of hope and encouragement. Steve is very thankful to God and humbled that he would be chosen by God to reach the unreachable not only through preaching the Word of God but through the words of a song. Rev. Steve Warren has a heart for ministry, whether it is in preaching the Word of God, singing, or in the various other gifts and talents God has placed in his life.

As a small boy in the hills of southwest Virginia, Rev. Steve Warren began to establish his roots in the ministry. At the age of five he began playing drums and singing with his family. As a young man at the age of thirteen, God called Steve to walk in the ministry in which he had been ordained for. Although the work of God was not new to him, it was not until the age of sixteen that God placed upon him the anointing in which he walks in today.

From a storefront building to an old funeral home, he began the road of a pastor. God placed in Brother Steve a pastor’s heart, for he has been a pastor for nineteen years, from the mountains of West Virginia, Virginia, and now Tennessee. Although he is a pastor, his first love is being an evangelist, for that is where his ministry began. Pastor Steve has a heart for people, whether it is in a pulpit as a pastor or as an evangelist.

Steve In 1993 Pastor Steve reached out from his own pulpit and began a television ministry in the hills of West Virginia. Realizing there were hurting people in homes everywhere he began “Miracles by Faith” television program which aired weekly, taking the gospel of Jesus Christ to those who in no other way would receive it.

God has given him a message of victory to share with a world that has no hope. Brother Steve has taken this message behind the iron bars of prison and jail cells as well as churches across America. God has placed special gifts and talents in Brother Warren’s life that has allowed him to touch people’s hearts in a unique way.

Not only does he preach the gospel under a powerful anointing, God has placed that same anointing on his singing. He has seen God use the anointing on a song to mend the broken hearted and set the captive free. Whether he is preaching or singing, Brother Steve feels that he can do neither without the anointing.

Throughout his ministry, God has allowed Brother Steve to operate in the Gifts of the Spirit according to 1 Corinthians chapter 12. He has seen the lame walk, the blind see, the deaf hear, and the captive set free through the power of God. Brother Warren stands firmly upon the Word of God, which he preaches and lives accordingly, under the direction of the Spirit of God.
