Deeper Worship, Deeper Word and Deeper Works of The Holy Spirit
Darren and Amanda Farmer have a desire to see the supernatural power of God restored in the church. Not only do they want to see the sick healed, the demonized set free and the broken restored by the Power and Life of Jesus, they have a calling to “equip the saint to do the work of the ministry”. By activating the fivefold ministry offices (Ephesians 4:11) and the gifts of the Spirit in the lives of the believer, every man and women can find their place in the Body of Christ and be used by God to touch their world.
Historydit this text.
Pastor Darren has been involved in full time, Apostolic ministry since he started his first church in September 1995 called “The Sanctuary“. Having graduated from “The School of Prophets” Bible school with Honors, in Birmingham England, Darren had a desire to see the kingdom of God established through a fivefold ministry approach, recognizing the different gifts given to the Church (Apostle, Prophet, Pastor, Teacher , Evangelist) and activating the gifts of the Spirit in the lives of believers. This caused the members to find their place and it resulted in dynamic growth. The church quickly grew out of its rented facilities and purchased an old movie theatre.
It was during this time that the church grew quickly and there was a greater need to train other. 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 as 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, seven new churches in Nigeria. Darren was also traveling with teams of people to around Europe, Africa and the USA holding conferences and teaching church growth seminar.
In 2005 Darren heard the call of God to leave the UK and move to the States, to Pastor an established church in Bangor Maine, called Abundant life. After a number of years Darren resigned from the church for personal reasons and took a couple of years out of the ministry where he was able to heal and hear the voice of God in a fresh way.
While Darren waited on God, he was led by The Holy Spirit to write his first book called “Broken: Restoration for God’s Wounded”. This book has touched hundreds of lives as it ministers the heart of the Father to the prodigals in the church. In 2009 Darren and Amanda were stirred by the Holy Spirit to expand this work and start a church in Bangor called “The Sanctuary Church“. With a heart for the hurting they opened their arms to the prodigal and the church became a healing center for many.
With years of experience and many great testimonies of healings, miracles, new churches and the Kingdom of God expanding, Darren and Amanda have heard and feel a passion to go back to their roots and establish a strong Fivefold Ministry Church in Portland Maine. They believe this will be a church where the supernatural presence of God is experienced and many people will be equipped and activated to use their gifts and see this gateway city used by God as a launch pad for revival in Maine and the East Coast.
In Darren’s own words, he is calling the church to go “Deeper” in worship, the Word and in the Works of the Holy Spirit. No one man or woman will bring revival to this land, but a church ignited with the fire of the Holy Spirit and equipped can change its destiny.
