Earlier today, I checked the analytics for my website and noticed that many of the posts I have written about the Warnocks have received traction in the last couple of days. I wrote about their their romantic engagement in “Historic Ebenezer Baptist Church Pastor Proposes to Girlfriend During Watch Night Service! (VIDEO)” in January 2016, their beautiful marriage ceremony just over a month later on Valentine’s Day in “Why Wait? Historic Ebenezer Baptist Church Pastor Marries on Valentine’s Day After NYE Proposal (VIDEO)!” and even the birth of their first child in “Historic Ebenezer Baptist Church Pastor & Wife Become Parents!” later that year. I think they are a beautiful couple, and I have visited Ebenezer several times over the years.
But when I Googled them today, this AJC article appeared…”Warnock, Wife Involved in Dispute” by Stephen Deere and Greg Bluestein. Rev. Warnock told the AJC that he and his wife have been separated since November and plan to divorce. The reason why he told the AJC this information is that the newspaper received a police report in which Ouleye Warnock accused her husband of driving over her foot in a recent argument. You can read the entire article with the details HERE.
Rev. Warnock’s life has already been of interest to the general public as he is the pastor of Dr. King’s church, but now that he is running for the U.S. Senate, his personal life will be scrutinized by a much broader platform. I wonder if he has factored that cost into his campaign costs. If not, now is the time because people are really looking for information according to my analytics. But let’s not forget that the God we serve is sovereign and what God has put together, let no men (even the men (women) in the relationship) put asunder. Although things don’t look so good right now, I hope the couple figures out a way to reconcile…

Im sorry about the parting of the way as far as marriage goes
I wish people didn’t find it necessary to delve into peoples
Private lives. But thats how this
Boats. I hope he wins and I hope he can make a big really big difference in this world. I hope he gets into lots of real “good trouble”.
…..Delving into peoples private lives bit thats how this boat floats.

As a women of God, the Bible says, in Isaiah 1:18 – Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
19 – If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:
20 – But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it. Love you both
Whatever happens is his business, he wouldn’t be the only one who has ever gotten a Divorce. And I am sure he won’t be the last . Enquiring minds that need to know, why that’s his life. Am sorry it happened ,but I wish them both well.
Regarding his marriage, sometime we make choices that God didn’t put together. As a human being he may have made the wrong choice. Also when we make mistakes we ask for forgiveness and forgive anyone that’s a part of the situation and move on. Never to make that kind of mistake again.
You don’t know how much your words have helped me in personal situation. Thank you for saying this–it is timely 🙂
Take it from one who has experienced marital separation, it is a sad and lonely moment when you sudden find yourself parting from a relationship you felt will endure till death. I’m not thoroughly familiar with Pastor Warnock nor his previous wife only to say he’s repeatedly demonstrated the kind of effective leadership on social reform commensurate with the work of Dr. M.L. King, Jr. His former wife Dr. Ndoyeo too is noted for exceptional stand on human and civil rights in Atlanta and across Georgia in particular her tireless fight against human trafficking of young girls in and around Atlanta. The fact both Pastor Warnock and Dr. Ndoyeo shared similar passions for humanity, it could have been the reason why they formed what appear an inseparable relationship. Rather than making hyperbolic gestures standing on the side lines about their separation, we should applaud their union and continuous work that’s making a change in our everyday lives. Let’s pray that God will transition them to a place of happiness and peace.
Let no man put asunder… to me that means, don’t get involved! Only God has a say in the matter.
I hope that Rev Warnock win the election.
He is a good man-so lets support him in every way. Continue to stay focus-God will bless you in many ways.
He’s not a good man if he supports abortion & LGBTQ & calls himself a Pastor/Reverend/Preacher & considers Stacy “Racist” Abrams a Leader.
Such beautiful marriage.
Hope they reconcile
An unequally yoked couple does not need to be back together. We need to pray for the spiritual restoration of Rev. Warnock. Has anyone considered the Whitehouse or senate may have not been in the plan for his marital selection. Let us pray that, GODS will be done in Jesus holy name, Amen and Amen
That’s two divorces for a religious man? If he can’t handle his own affairs he has got no business representing anybody in public office.
Samuel, he has been divorced once not twice.
He has 2 divorces on public record
No, it is one.
He believes and supports abortion & LBGTQ & his marriage lasted 3 years. So let’s please eliminate the title “Preacher” or “Reverend”.
He also list racist Stacy Abrams as his Leader.
I was still considering voting for him, until I see Stacy Abrams on his website.
Please Georgia, do not vote for such a man!
Stacy “Racist” Abrams will be his downfall.
Separate from her/him and you have a chance
They will work it out only if they want to!!!
Why would Warnock continue to physicslly abuse his wife. She has no reason to lie. I believe her completely.
Hi Kimberly, there are no allegations of domestic violence.
Certainly Warnock does not want to face the truth and facts. He has a wrong attitude when he hides the truth and thinks that he is justified in divorce, calling himself a reverend, doctor and intelligent people see through this. His history of radical actions and what he calls sermons is a cover up for another agenda. It’s not good to say blasphemous things that paint God as hateful towards America. The fact that his father told him to put on shoes and that he likes dogs is such a pitiful play. He tries to ‘appear’ good but his soul is for God to deal with.
I originally did not know of him. However his background and commitment to God is impressive, as a pastor he should know we cannot serve two masters. PERIOD. So that leaves me at two primary questions. The first is, who filed for divorce? If he has no loyalty to GOD for the sake of saving his marriage, how loyal will he be to the citizens of GA? The second is of course, where do his TRUE loyalties lie? Is he raising his children? Is he supporting his former wife’s educational pursuits to better herself and serve as a role model for their children? What kind of pastor is he? Most important, why is he allegedly sealing court records to hide TRUTH. These are the times of the double-minded man (James 1:8). GA should pay very close attention to who they chose to represent them. His competition is not worth any fonts in this post as he lied about killing his baby.
