2. 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.
As a young pastor in southwest Virginia, his love for music began to deepen. He began word at a 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, and “Those Three Old Rusty Nails” #15 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.
