Anthony Warren is the founder and Lead Pastor of Hope International Ministry.
Before Hope, Pastor Anthony sat under the leadership of the great Bishop Keith T. Jenkins for Twenty-three years and was ordained as an Elder in 2005.
During his Twenty-three year tenure, Pastor Anthony served on staff at Open Door Evangelistic World Ministries, in Minnesota. He led the media and marketing team, taught Sunday school, small groups, directed the choir, and served where he was needed in many other areas of ministry.
Pastor Anthony has a heart for serving God's people. His passion is to help others discover their potential and fulfill the purpose and plan that God has for their lives.
In 2010, he relocated to Arizona and in 2014, he founded Hope Intentional Ministry in Coolidge, AZ. A year prior to opening Hope, he met and married his wife Audri. They have a beautiful, blended family, with seven wonderful children and four beautiful grandchildren.
After getting to know the people within the community, they focused their attention on identifying the needs of their neighbors, so that they could help strengthen the community. Understanding that it was a necessity, they opened Hope International Food Pantry in 2016, where they served upwards of 900 people a month. Since opening, they have enlisted the help of several public and private organizations as well as private citizens.
Together, they have a desire to help people in any capacity that they can, so twice a month, along with a group of very gracious and caring volunteers, they help and serve their neighbors and anyone who finds their way to the pantry with food boxes.
They have also established a limited resource center within the food pantry and their goal is to be an all-around resource center to help people.
Audri was born in Arizona. She attended school in Phoenix and church in both Phoenix and San Tan Valley. During her tenure, shes taught Children’s Church, led Small Groups, worked on the Hospitality Team and held different Administrative positions within the church.
Audri met Pastor Anthony Warren in 2013 and they subsequently married the same year, blending their families of seven children and now four beautiful grandchildren.
As she encouraged her husband in walking in his divine purpose, Hope International Ministry was birthed in early 2014.
As a young adult, Audri realized that she had an enormous passion for helping people. The Lord gave Audri the vision of opening a food pantry. Thus, under the umbrella of the church, Hope International Food Pantry was born.
At Hope International Food Pantry in Coolidge, AZ, over 900 people are served nutritious foods boxes every month.
Audri also heads the Women's Ministry and has been vital in structuring the Administrative Office of Hope International Ministry. Her passion is helping God's people in any way that God leads her.
