Bishop Ferris was my pastor when I began attending The apostolic gospel church in Zanesville Ohio in 2003. I remember helping Bishop Ferris around the church when he needed it. He always took time to answer my questions and guide me. I'm so thankful for Bishop Ferris and Sister Ferris. There ministry and sacrifices have impacted so many, including me.

Our sincere condolences to you Sis. Farris and the family. Bro. Farris was a prince of a man. Always kind and gentle. He was a great friend and he will be greatly missed.

What a great reunion when we are all together in Beulah Land that he often spoke of. Our love and prayers are with you during your time of loss.

Sister Farris, Larry and Angela,
My prayers and thoughts are with you during this time. I remember well the times that your family would come and be in service with us in Russellville. Many were the times that in worship Brother Farris would do the “Clarksville tornado” during a spiritual storm. I have always considered him to be a TRUE man of God and a gift to all that have had the blessing of sharing his company. Wish we could be there in person, but just know that our family will be thinking and praying for you in the days to come. I’m sure that my Mom and Dad are rejoicing with him in that blessed promise land. May you all feel the love and peace of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ both now and until the appointed day when you shall be reunited in the Glory prepared for His Saints! Love in Christ
