James Warren

Student Pastor


Joined Staff: 2007


Role: The Student Pastor is responsible for casting vision, developing leaders and creating environments for students to authentically connect with each other and God.

My Story: I grew up going to church every week with my parents and met the Lord in elementary school. I didn’t fully engage in my faith in middle school and high school. During my Junior year in college, I had a mentor who really challenged me to make my faith my own and it was at that point it became real.

I have a B.S. in Physics from Randolph Macon College and am working towards a Masters in Organizational Leadership at Regent University. I have been the Student Pastor at Coastal since June 2007, and have worked as a Youth Minister and Youth Intern.

I’m married to Kelsey and enjoy playing Xbox, coaching High School Sports, and I’m currently pursuing my Masters of Organizational Leadership.
