About the Regional Overseer
Bishop Glenville L. D. Ferris Sr, Antiguan by birth, was converted at the age of 19 and immediately became involved in church life, serving as youth director, Sunday school teacher and church treasurer. In 1976, a mere three years after accepting Jesus Christ as his Lord and Saviour, he was appointed to his first pastorate.
In 1978, he was united in Holy Matrimony to Kittitian born, C. Agatha Liburd. The union produced 3 wonderful children. Wendy, Glenville Jr and Adrian.
Bishop Ferris who considers himself a life-long learner, has always sought to develop himself especially in the COGOP context and completed the Bible Training Institute, Center for Biblical Leadership as well as SOPAS courses.
In 1991 he was appointed as district overseer of Antigua, then Regional Presbyter in 2003 and ordained Bishop in October 2004. In 2018, he was appointed as Regional Overseer of the Leeward Islands, Dominica and French West Indies.
Presently, he serves as treasurer of the Antigua & Barbuda Evangelical Alliance and is the pastor of COGOP, Rowan Henry Street, Antigua.
His greatest satisfaction is being in partnership with his wife, who is also a licensed minister, and to see his children as well as daughters-in-law Tarika & Venicia all actively involved in ministry. Adding to this joy are grandchildren, Shiloh, Ceriyah & Ceriqua. Bishop Ferris’ motto is ‘Servant in the Kingdom’. In spite of all the challenges of ministry, he is thankful that the Lord Jesus has counted him worthy to place him in ministry.
