Pastor Darren Farmer is an inspirational preacher with a desire to see the supernatural power of God restored in the church. Not only does he want to see the sick healed, the demonized set free, the broken restored by the power and life of Jesus, he also wants to see all the gifts restored in the church. Some have called him a “fire starter” and others have called him a “revivalist.” However, Darren just wants to see the body of Christ equipped and mobilized and doing the stuff that Jesus did on the streets, in their everyday lives. He believes ministry is not contained in the church but flows into every area of life that we touch.
Pastor Darren has been involved in full time, Apostolic ministry, since he started his first church, The Sanctuary, in 1995. Having graduated from The School of Prophets Bible School, in Birmingham England, Darren has had a desire to see the kingdom of God established through a five-fold ministry approach. The five-fold ministry recognizes the different gifts given to the Church (Apostle, Prophet, Pastor, Teacher and Evangelist) and activates these gifts of the Spirit in the lives of believers. This causes the believers to find their place resulting in dynamic growth in the church. The Sanctuary quickly grew out of its rented facilities and purchased an old movie theatre.
It was during this time of rapid growth at The Sanctuary that Darren recognized the need to train others. With a desire to see the kingdom expand a new Bible School was established called “The Apostolic School of Ministry” where many were trained and sent out to do the works of the kingdom. Darren has a philosophy that the doors of the church should remain open. Not just for people coming in but for people being sent out! Through the school, five new churches were established in England, and seven new churches in Nigeria.
In 2005 Darren heard the call of God to leave the UK and move to the States to pastor Abundant Life, an established church in Bangor, Maine. Since then Darren and his wife, Amanda, have established a new church Deeper Worship Center, in Portland, Maine. They continue to pastor this church and see the presence of God touching lives in a new way every week.
Darren continues to travel and minister with a desire to see hearts set on fire and the kingdom released. God is using him to call the church to go “deeper” in worship, in the Word, and in the works of the Holy Spirit. The equipped church ignited with the fire of the Holy Spirit can bring revival and change its destiny.
