            Sidney & Becky Farmer

Bro. Sidney Farmer was saved in 1978 and surrendered to the ministry in 1997. He has pastored three churches: two in Mississippi and one in Alabama. Sidney accepted the call to the mission field in March 2012. He has been married to Becky Farmer since 1987. They have three sons: Austin, Dexter, and Kyle.

South Forrest has been blessed with new members, and they have new visitors almost every service. Their membership is now at twenty five and attendance is often in the fifties. My Vision: To build a doctrinally sound and spiritually stable church through the scriptural process of discipleship. My Objectives: 1. Equip the people for the work of the ministry by preaching and teaching; 2. Make disciples (evangelism, baptism, teaching); 3. Make disciple makers; 4. Develop South Forrest to become the cornerstone of stability and godliness in the community. My Goals:

  • To develop more disciple makers (which will result in more professions of faith, edification of the church, and more blessings from God)
  • To establish and develop a youth ministry
  • To construct larger facilities to accommodate and sustain current growth
  • To increase our involvement in the community as more resources and people become available
