Bob and Suzanne Warren
Bob and Suzanne Warren serve with One Mission Society as church multiplication facilitators in Japan and South Korea for Every Community for Christ, the church multiplication catalyst of One Mission Society.
The Warrens both grew up in the Northwest portion of the U.S. and graduated from George Fox University. Suzanne earned a degree in education and taught music for more than 20 years. Bob went to Western Evangelical Seminary and pastored for 30 years in Oregon and Washington. While pastoring in Spokane, Washington, Bob and Suzanne served as Timothy pastors with OMS, ministering in Asia and Africa to train and encourage missionaries and national workers.
God’s call to Central Asia in 2008 signaled a shift in ministry from the pastorate to full-time work expanding God’s kingdom internationally. They moved to Central Asia in 2008 and served as interim president of an OMS-affiliated seminary. They returned to the U.S. in 2009 and represented OMS in the Northwest. They also traveled regularly to Japan and South Korea as church multiplication facilitators, training and coaching partners. In 2012, they moved to Japan and pastored for two years at the OMS Christian Mission Church in Tokyo while continuing to work with the Japan Holiness Church and with the Korea Evangelical Holiness Church in Korea. They returned to the U.S. in 2014 to assist Suzanne’s parents and accepted the pastoral role at a church that allowed them to continue a part-time international ministry. In 2017, Bob and Suzanne completed their pastoral ministry and returned to a focus on missions, living in Vancouver, Washington, and continuing to work in Japan and South Korea.
The Warrens have three children: Michelle and Glen Miller live in Hampton, Virginia, and have four boys; Steve and Kelly Warren live in Spokane, Washington, with their three children; David and Izabel Warren, with their two children, live in Vancouver, Washington.
