Warren Fitzgerald Collins is the founding pastor of Calvary Praise and Worship Center, a work that began in September of 1994.
After graduating from Free Gospel Bible Institute of Export, PA in 1975 and spending the next fourteen (14) years of his life in various types of volunteer ministry, he began full time ministry (1989) as an Associate Pastor at one of the largest churches in the city of Boston. He held this position for five (5) years until the planting of CPWC.
Pastor is known to mingle the serious topics of the Word of God with humor, a method that releases his insightful way of making Biblical accounts tangible and practical. There is a way about him that brings the truths of the Bible down to the street where you live. It is not uncommon to find yourself laughing, and then crying almost simultaneously.
Pastor Warren has authored one book, Stretched To The Unlimited (2001 – Xulon Press) and currently is in the process of working on his second manuscript.
He married his high-school sweetheart Lynne Renee (Ellcock) Collins in 1972 and they remained together until her homegoing in December of 2019. Their union produced seven (7) children - five (5) sons (Caleb, Joshua, Jeremy, David, Emmanuel), two (2) daughters (Alysha, Deitra) and fifteen (15) grandchildren (Isaiah, Jordyn, Eugene, Camryn, Caleb, Genesis, Elaina, Elijah, Daniel, Aja, Thaddyus, Remi, Lenyx, Franklin, Mia).
