Jim and Gail Warren were long-time members of Davidson Street Baptist Church in Clinton, SC. Gail has retired from Whitten Center. Jim later in life than some, surrendered to the call to ministry and worked his way through a bachelor's degree at North Greenville University. Amanda and Jim became friends when they both worked at Belk in Laurens, SC. During that time he was also pastor at Waterloo (SC) Baptist Church and Highland Home Baptist Church in Gray Court, SC. After earning a bachelor's degree, Jim drove 10 hour round trips to earn a Master of Divinity in Biblical Counseling at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC. I ran into him by accident one day my first year at the seminary when I noticed a car with a Cooper car dealership tag and turned around to see who was driving it. There was Jim. He had been commuting for over a year at that time. Jim graduated this past May and is pastoring Walnut Grove in Hodges, SC.
