Brian Warren

BrianAfter eight years of creating excitement on football fields all across this nation, God compelled Brian Warren to envision a Canada where Jesus’ name is echoed from coast to coast to coast.

In 1995, Brian, along with seven other dedicated men, worked tirelessly to bring the transforming power of Jesus Christ to Canadian men through the ministry of Promise Keepers. Years later, Promise Keepers Canada continues to revolutionize the lives of Canadian men and their families.

Often quoted as saying he is a Canadian by choice and not by birth, Brian’s missionary zeal for his adopted country was amplified while attending the Stand in the Gap Rally in Washington D.C.  As he stood amongst two million men crying out to God for the United States, his heart’s cry was…”But what about Canada?”  God heard.

In December of 1997, Canada in Prayer was birthed and intercessory prayer in Canada went hi-tech. Brian’s vision, through Canada In Prayer, is to see the gospel of Jesus Christ impact Canada by strategically targeting 500,000 un-churched, increasing the Kingdom by 50,000, and steadily increasing the percentage point of Christians in Canada, thus transforming the spiritual landscape of our country.

Ordained Minister

God called Brian out of a successful professional football career in 1994 to pursue the ultimate championship – kingdom building. After three years of study he was ordained in the African Methodist Episcopal Church. He is now the Senior Pastor of a thriving congregation, The Hope Centre, in Mississauga.


Each year, Brian reaches hundreds of thousands of people with the good news of Jesus Christ. He uses the same discipline and determination he used to win two national championships and all-pro honours to campaign for Jesus. He shamelessly tells all who has ears to hear that “the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life”. God has given him great compassion for the lost, and righteous indignation for the religious. Unashamed of the gospel, his message is bold yet always reflecting the Father’s heart.

Television Broadcaster

Trained in communication at the University of Arizona, Brian uses his unforgettable voice and ease in front of the cameras to reflect the love of Jesus.  He is now co-host of the 700 Club Canada.
