Rev. Warden joined the Codman Square Health Center board in December 2010. He is the immediate retired pastor of the Greenwood Memorial United Methodist Church in Dorchester.

Rev. Warden was born in Barbados, West Indies, and spent much of his youth and young adult life there. Rev. Warden immigrated to the United States in 1984, becoming a citizen in 1995. He earned a Master’s of Divinity degree from the Boston University School of Theology, and continued his schooling by participating in a post-master’s certificate program in Urban Ministry at the Urban Theology Institute in England.

He served as Pastor at several other churches before coming to Dorchester. He also serves on the Board of Directors of the Four Corners Action Coalition, United Methodist Federal Credit Union, and the Greenwood Shalom Community Outreach. The Reverend enjoys cooking, reading, music and dancing.

His favorite part about Codman Square Health Center: “The willingness to serve those living on the margin.”
