Before joining the Colson Center, he was Vice President of WORLD News Group, publisher of WORLD Magazine as well as the producer of the nationally syndicated program “The World and Everything In It.” Before transitioning to a career in ministry, Warren spent more than 20 years in the corporate world, including seven years as the Marketing Director for a major division of PricewaterhouseCoopers, the global accounting and consulting firm.

His latest book is a novel, Print The Legend (2017).
