'Uniquely Gifted"  is a phrase often used to describe Dr. Farris Long.   He received Christ as Lord and Savior at the age of 8.  At the age of 17 he became a licensed minister under the hand and tutelage of the Late Apostle R. J. Washington. At the age of 22 he became an ordained Elder. Then, in June of 2013, he was appointed an Overseer under the hand of Bishop Gary E. Wright, providing spiritual covering for pastors and spiritual leaders in the body of Christ. In August 2019, Dr. Long was duly consecrated as a Bishop in the Lord's Church and affirmed an Apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Bishop Long is a sought after minister of the gospel who travels both nationally and internationally sharing the message of the Christ &  the Kingdom. His messages are notably balanced between practical and powerful. December 21, 2019 marked 25 years in ministry for Bishop Long and his ministry continues to touch thousands of people every day. Countless people have received physical healing, miracles, and deliverance through his ministry. But in the end, Dr. Long's greatest desire is that Christ be glorified!
In 2014 he released a short empowerment video that depicted dark water becoming clear as a reminder for people to not give up their faith and to continue to pray. The video literally went around the world and had been shared more than 2 million times on various social media platforms.  As a result, countless people have given their lives to Christ. Many have been freed from addictions and more.  This simple message has become the platform that has allowed him to share in churches across the nation his "PRAY HARD" seminar.

Using his trademarked theme "MAKE IT COUNT" He not only reaches out to the churched, but he shares messages of empowerment with people from all walks of life, outside the church walls. He has taken this impactful message into the juvenile judicial system of Duval county, into upper level education institutions and more. He is passionate about challenging people to pursue their potential and to fulfill their purpose. "Make it Count" is the outreach arm of his ministry. But his foundations remain true as he is also a sought after minister of the gospel, worship leader, and psalmist. 

Dr. Long, a native of Jacksonville, FL., now resides in Knoxville, TN and serves as the Preaching Pastor and Asst. to Bishop Gary E. Wright of the Kingdom Life Church of Knoxville.
