Our Leaders

Glenn FerrellGlenn Ferrell has been pastor of First Orthodox Presbyterian Church in San Francisco since November 5th, 2010. Previously, he was pastor of Sovereign Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Boise, Idaho, for more than five years; and prior to that a church planter and evangelist in the Appalachian region of Kentucky. Glenn grew up in Eastern Kentucky, the grandson of coal miners, a seventh generation Appalachian. He attended college in North Carolina, and seminaries in New Jersey, Kentucky and California. He did additional graduate work in Ohio and Kentucky. He was ordained to the ministry in 1987. Before that he worked in communications, information systems, and as a community developer. He served in Southeast Asia with the Army Signal Corps in the mid 70s. Married to Susan Nye Ferrell; they have six children and twelve grandchildren.

Glenn is an orthodox, confessional Calvinist, who subscribes to the historical Westminster Standards as an accurate summary of the most important teachings of the Bible. Therefore, he holds the historic formulas regarding the Trinity, the person and work of Jesus, the inspiration and authority of the scriptures, and salvation by grace through God-given faith in Jesus Christ alone. Worship is the highest work of believers, to be done according to God’s command; preaching and hearing the word our great privilege, blessing and means of grace. The Lord’s Day is a delight, given by God for the care of our souls. Christ’s Church belongs to Him and should be governed according to His direction in the Bible, being reformed and transformed by the Word of God alone. In San Francisco one finds most of the false religions of mankind; one also finds biblically faithful churches advancing the Kingdom through preaching, practicing and living God’s truth. It is a privilege to minister with one of these congregations.
