Rev. Marissa R. Farrow, a Native of Baltimore MD, was born on June 19, 1989 to Bishop Robert E. Farrow and Evangelist Jacqueline Farrow, Pastors of Mt. Calvary Church & Ministries, where Marissa had her beginnings in ministry. Marissa attributes her ministerial beginnings to one “Good Friday Morning” when asked by her father to stand in for a pastor who was unable to make their annual Seven Last Words service. It was from that moment that at the age of 14, Marissa found herself stepping out of the backgrounds of ministry, to the forefront when she began speaking for diverse occasions in the city of Baltimore On March 4, 2007, Marissa began her public ministry by preaching her formal Initial/Trial Sermon at Mt. Calvary Church and Ministries; a sermon entitled “The Unshakable Call” from Jeremiah 4:1-9 and Psalms 27. In June of that same year, Marissa graduated with academic honors as well as military honors from Meade Sr. High School. Upon graduating, she began matriculating as a Biology Pre-Med major at Delaware State University. After a year and a half of studying there, she transferred back to Maryland and continued in that major at Community College of Baltimore County. Following this, she spent time studying at Eastern Theological Seminary. She is currently completing her Bachelors in Business Administration with a concentration in entrepreneurship from Livingstone College in Salisbury, NC; where she anticipates graduating in December 2017. Where she also is a proud Spring 2015 initiate of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. Marissa prays that her academic journey will empower young people everywhere to know that it’s never too late to do what you should have done! In August of 2013, she was ordained as an Elder in the Northeast Freewill Baptist Convention. Marissa has been privileged to sit under great leadership and glean from the teachings of her father, Bishop Robert E. Farrow, and currently serves on the preaching staff at The Greater Allen Cathedral of New York, under the Pastoral leadership of Rev. Dr. Floyd & Elaine Flake and she attributes much gratitude to many other great leaders who have impacted her preaching ministry and her personal pursuit of living a life of integrity. She has been blessed to minister on “Churchin On The Word” live from The Word Network Studios in Detroit, Michigan and has also been featured in various written publications as a young leader in the church. One of her proudest accomplishments is her first published work entitled “Delivered From Dysfunction A Seven Step Guide To A Better You!” Released April 2014. Marissa is on a kingdom move for God and will not stop until she pursues the purpose God has for her. She loves the Lord and knows that it’s only by His grace that she has come thus far and His mercy, which will lead her on. She is an advocate for youth and for success of the church.
