Elder Marissa Farrow
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 start 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. In August 2013, she was ordained 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 as the Preaching Assistant and Minister to Young Adults at the Greater Allen AME Cathedral of New York, under the Pastoral leadership of Rev. Dr. Floyd & Elaine Flake.
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 desires to create a ministry that will break marketplace barriers. She is an advocate for youth, women, & leaders. Her greatest desire is to serve God and be an agent of change wherever she may go!
