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.

Supt. Dorris works in many facets of ministry. In his 17 years of Pastoring, he has successfully merged two churches, has assisted and supported other leaders within his church to begin their Pastorship and helps 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.

In May of 2018, Supt. 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 now works alongside Mayor R. Parris and the city council, to assist in community outreach, and participates in numerous community fellowship services. Supt. Dorris has also been recognized by Senator Scott Wilks, appointing him as a voting delegate in Sacramento, Ca.
