Juston Warthen Area Pastor

About my family nucleus:
My beautiful wife, Atiya, and I have been married since 2012. She’s originally from Atlanta, GA, but is a passionate Saints fan. We met here at City Church. We now have two wonderful children.
Salvation Experience:
I don’t know the exact day I received salvation. My experience is best described as a progression. I say that because my interest in Jesus grew over time; previously, I was agnostic -- I didn’t believe Jesus was the Son of God nor did I believe in Christianity. While in college, I was dating a young lady who got radically saved. Seeing the change in her life sparked my curiosity about the reality of Jesus: it baffled me because I couldn’t understand what happened to her. The changes in her behavior and character caused me to question if Jesus was real; that started my salvation journey. City Church is where I experienced deliverance. I experienced what it was like to walk in the power of God and be free from sin. There were addictions that I could not break free from on my own and when I got to City Church I experienced freedom.

How the Lord Expanded My Vision

In late February of 2018, I had the privilege of accompanying my Pastor, Owen McManus, Jr., to India for a missions trip. It wasn’t his first time, having first traveled there some years ago. He later established Bishop McManus Academy of India, a Christian elementary and middle school that educates children from a variety of religious backgrounds. That said, it was my first trip there.... read more
