Warren was converted in 1884 at a revival near Bangor, Michigan. Two years later he joined Daniel Warner and his evangelistic singing company as a bass singer.
The group was part of the Church of God Reformation Movement in Anderson, Indiana. Warren is credited with writing over 7,000 songs. His wife was Nannie Kigar, who belonged to the singing group that traveled the countryside in the late 1800’s.
Warren was a Church of God minister as well as a song writer, and pastored several congregations. He also helped produce song books and hymnals for the Gospel Trumpet Publishing Company, 1888–1940.
