Bishop Darrell Dorris
Overseer of Antelope Valley District of Churches


Bishop Darrell Dorris, a man of great faith and integrity, has served in ministry for many years. As a child, he witnessed ministry at its best. As a third-generation Pastor, he has learned how to lead God’s people through the observation and teachings of Pastors and Missionaries at work within his family.

In July 1997, Bishop Dorris married Pastor Roshunda L. Dorris. Through this union, they now have four children, one girl, and three boys, active workers in their local and national church, pursuing higher education.

Bishop Dorris, along with his wife continued to work in ministry. They’ve operated as Music Directors, Praise and Worship Leaders, Youth Pastors, and Assistant Pastors. Together they dedicated their time, talents, and treasure toward the building of the ministries they attended.

In August of 2000, Bishop Dorris was licensed as an ordained Elder within the Churches of God in Christ. In August of 2002, He and his wife, Evangelist Roshunda Dorris answered the call of Pastorship. On Sunday, August 4, 2002, the doors of Temple of Deliverance opened for worship service.

In November 2010, Bishop Darrell and Evangelist Roshunda Dorris began Pastoring an additional church. In January 2011, they merged the two ministries and became Living Faith Cathedral COGIC, located at 418 W. Ave. J in Lancaster, CA where they serve and encourage over 1000 souls.

Bishop Dorris works in many facets of ministry. In over 2o years of Pastoring, he has successfully merged two churches, has assisted and supported other leaders within his church to begin their Pastorship, and has helped plant 5 churches within the Antelope Valley.  He gives his time, resources, and wisdom to the support of local Pastors and community leaders to support kingdom work. Out of this effort, was birthed the Antelope Valley District of Churches (AVDOC) in December of 2018. Bishop Darrell Dorris formed the AVDOC community of Bishops, Pastors, leaders, and their congregants, to provide a place of fellowship, support, and collaboration city-wide. 

In May of 2018, Bishop Dorris received recognition from the Mayor of the city of Lancaster, Mayor R. Rex Parris, for his ecumenical contributions to the community, and was appointed Deputy Mayor of Lancaster, CA. He began working alongside Mayor R. Parris and the city council, to assist in community outreach, and participates in numerous community fellowship services. Bishop Dorris has also been recognized by Senator Scott Wilks, who appointed him as a voting delegate in Sacramento, CA.

In November 2019, Bishop Dorris was appointed to the office of Lancaster City Council, enabling him to continue to serve his community. He faithfully served as a Lancaster City Councilman for four years. In March of 2022, Bishop Dorris was concentrated as the founding Bishop of the Antelope Valley District of Churches, by the River Fellowship International, under the honorable Apostle, Bishop Joby Brady (The Potters House North, Dallas, Texas).  In August of 2023, he resigned from the office of City Council, to rededicate his time and efforts to the building of his local church (Living Faith Cathedral), and providing a place of fellowship, support, and collaboration with religious leaders, and city government. 

Bishop Dorris has transcended denominational barriers, has been anointed with a powerful ministry of deliverance, and has passionately carried the message of the gospel. Pastor Dorris has dedicated his life to God, his family, the empowerment of God’s people, and the welfare and unity of his community.
