Warren is a native Kansan, having grown up in rural Reno County. He came to Christ as a senior in high school, then began attending Wichita Bible Church shortly thereafter, when he moved to Wichita to attend Wichita State University. After completing his training to become a Physician Assistant in 1981, he and his new wife Karen moved to western Kansas for a few years, before returning to Wichita (and Wichita Bible Church) in 1985.

He and his wife have seven children (all are boys except for six of them) and they are just embarking on the grandparenting phase of their lives, which entices them with travels to visit those new additions to the family.
