Meet the Hosts

Meet the Hosts


In 1994, after eight years of creating excitement on football fields all across this nation as a professional CFL linebacker, 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.

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. In 2000, Brian founded the Start2Finish program (then KidsFest) by distributing backpacks filled with quality schools supplies and books to children in at-risk schools and hosting literacy festivals.

Start2Finish was born out of the vision that the effects of the cycle of child poverty could be broken in Canada by providing ongoing educational support to Canada’s at-risk children throughout their school years, nurturing mind, body and social health so they would be empowered to graduate and succeed.

Each year, Brian reaches hundreds of thousands of people with the good news of Jesus Christ. 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.

Brian is also the Senior Pastor of a thriving congregation, New Hope Centre, in Mississauga.
