Rev. Dr. Audrey Warren has been the Senior Pastor of First United Methodist Church off Miami since July 2015.  A native Floridian, Audrey did not venture too far from her hometown of Naples to plant some roots. Audrey began serving as a United Methodist Pastor at Branches United Methodist Mission in Florida City before her appointment here.

Audrey is a dynamic preacher and educator and has a special passion for children’s education in which area she completed her doctoral project. She has a passion for both contemporary and traditional worship and has a deep love for scripture.

Audrey is a courageous leader and motivator and has a passion for bringing diverse people together to carry out the work of Christ in the community. She is fluent in English and Spanish. She also has a 200 hour Yoga Alliance Teacher Certificate. In her spare time, you can find her at the beach with a good book, running in Coconut Grove, or a yoga class in town!
