Warren Mayer

Men's Support Group
On staff since 2011
Warren was raised in the northern suburbs of Detroit, but prefers to simply tell people "Detroit," because he thinks this somehow makes him sound tougher and scarier than he really is. Warren received his B.A. in communications from Adrian College in 1983 and completed his M.A. (Theological Studies) at Covenant Seminary in 2016. Since moving to Columbia in 1992, Warren worked 26 years for Mizzou; in early 2021, he retired from the University to start his second career doing what he loves - writing and editing - for Relevance, an online marketing/SEO company. He is married to Michele, which most people would say is undoubtedly the single greatest redeeming thing about him. In addition to five children from previous marriages, they have one son together. Warren "specializes" in reaching out to adults in the thick of serious life stressors. Having come to Christ in 1997 out of a background of alcoholism and divorce, Warren now works part-time in The Crossing in recovery ministries and co-facilitates DivorceCare with his wife. While recognizing the truth that we are all broken and flawed individuals, Warren's passion is to share the good news of unlimited mercy and grace in Jesus Christ. He names as his deepest influences John Piper, Ed Welch, Charles Spurgeon, and C.S. Lewis. *part-time
