Pastor Warren pastored his first church in 2002 at Friendship Bible Baptist in Bastrop, TX. In 2004, he founded the United Christian House of Prayer (UCHOP), which he pastored from 2004-2007. Then in 2008, Pastor Warren was called to pastor Little Ebenezer Baptist Church (LEBC) in Hutto, TX. Under his leadership, LEBC grew tremendously in spirit, congregation, and structure.
WHEREAS, Pastor Warren had one mission in life - making it to heaven. And on the way there, he was making every attempt to bring everyone he could on the ride to get there with him. Pastor Warren didn’t know a stranger and was loved by everyone he met. To simply state he was a good man isn’t enough. To state he was a great man still isn’t enough. But to state he was truly a man after God’s own heart, would be the greatest honor to Pastor Warren. Everything he did, he did for the glory of God. From 1974 - 2021, Pastor Warren’s dash was filled with loving God, loving his family, loving his church, his friends, and strangers, all in that order.
WHEREAS the City of Hutto will greatly miss the leadership of Rev. Fred B. Warren, Jr.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the City Council of the City of Hutto hereby proclaims the 19th day of August, 2021 as:
“Rev. Fred B. Warren Jr. Day”
