Who Is Warren Davis
Born in 1957, Warren Davis grew up in the Carroll Park and Wynnefield sections of Philadelphia. He attended Philadelphia Public Schools. Warren Davis' childhood was the usual Christian experience in those years, going to church with his Uncle Rev. Nate King and learning about Jesus Christ at Sunday School. He gravitated toward the streets at age 13, where he became a gang member, got involved in the illicit drug trade, and other criminal activity. Warren became an alcoholic almost immediately at age 14 by drinking wine straight from the bottle with the gang members. Active addiction to substances soon followed during his teen years beginning with marijuana and moving on to stronger drugs. He drank and used drugs for the next 22 years of his life and got into trouble with the law. After years of active addiction & alcoholism, the old
adage "sick and tired of being sick and tired" began to apply to his life. He attempted to change. After multiple 5-day detoxification stays and 30-day rehabs, homelessness & shelters, NA and AA meetings and isolation from the mainstream of life, Warren screamed out for help. Nothing seemed to work, and Warren started to lose all hope and felt he was just going to die in this disease. His life was like a snow ball rolling down hill with his problems getting bigger and bigger. He couldn't hold a job anymore, had lost his children to foster homes, was himself homeless, and was begging people for coins in the streets. He even began to think death would be better than life at this point, contemplating how to accomplish it.
Instead, he began calling on the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for help as he remembered as a child. After regularly sleeping in the subway corridors and trains in Philadelphia and on the Lindenwold speedline in New Jersey, one morning he noticed three police cars in the parking lot of a restaurant in Lindenwold. He entered the restaurant in his disheveled appearance, approached the officers who were having breakfast, and told them his problem. They gave him two dollars for speedline fare and put him on the train to Atlantic City Rescue Mission. From the mission, as one last ditched attempt at the remissison of his disease, he relunctantly entered the Salvation Army Men's Center in Trenton, NJ on November 5, 1993. He stayed there and finally got his first 90 days clean while sorting clothing for the stores and attending religious services. The rolling snow ball had stopped! The Lord Jesus Christ had answered his call and his prayers!
