Witt was the second of three children born to Jerry and Nola Witt, a young American missionary couple. The Witt family moved to Durango, México, in 1960 and started a missionary outreach. Jerry was killed when his small aircraft was shot down in 1964 while he was dropping gospels of St. John over small villages in Mexico. Nola Witt continued the mission work after his death. Some years later, she married Frank Warren. Together, they began to build new churches in Durango, México. The couple had two children, twin daughters Nolita and Lorena Warren.

He then studied classical music at the University of Juarez (Durango, México) and eventually started his theological studies at the International Bible College in San Antonio, Texas. Currently[when?], Witt is working towards his masters degree at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
