Warren Stewart, Jr. is the founder and lead pastor of Church of The Remnant. As a Phoenix native, he grew up as a “preacher’s kid” in the black Baptist church where his foundation of faith was forged and he was shaped for future ministry working in multicultural churches and ministries. With his strong passion for the broken and oppressed to find redemption through Jesus, Remnant South Phoenix was strategically planted to see the renewal of this community through a gospel-centered and intercultural-church. He is grateful for his beautiful wife and partner in ministry Chrystal and their three gifted children.
Warren is a highly gifted and charismatic preacher that brings the Word of God to life in ways that captivate any audience and has been doing so for twenty years. This powerful preaching ignites people to live out the gospel and unlock their identity in Christ. He exists to exemplify the love of God through authentic ministry, as our life stories become the keys, which unlock the relevancy of the power of the Gospel through holistic outreach and discipleship.
He initiated Faith & Justice PHX, which joins church and community in a righteous response to systemic injustice and is currently forming projects with the PHX PD. Warren is on the board of the Surge Network and most recently the Governor’s Council for Child Safety and Family Empowerment and the newly formed African-American Advisory Council Board for the Maricopa County’s Sheriff’s Office under newly elected Sheriff Paul Penzone. He is a graduate of Phoenix Seminary with a Master of Arts in Ministry.
He was awarded as one of the “Top 40 diverse leaders under 40” for pastoring and social activism by the Greater Phoenix Urban League Young Professionals. He serves as the Director of Church Recruitment for Harvest of Hope Family Services, Inc., which equips churches to start foster care ministries to foster and adopt children from group homes. Warren is also the author of “DiRTY CHRiSTiANiTY: We’ve Left Something Out of The Gospel.”
