He was an ordained minister, who was married to Gertrude Ferguson for 10 years. The union produced one daughter, Hervianna. He was born in Jamaica West Indies, and was a citizen of the United States of America. He resided in New Jersey with his wife and daughter. He served in the local churches in Jamaica and New Jersey as a pastor and overseer for over 30 years. He also served his local community in Jamaica, through farming, as he owned and operated a farm, where he employed several members from the community.

He received the call of God on his life, while he was fishing at a sea in his community of St. Mary in Jamaica. While fishing, he fell asleep. In a vision, he saw Peter, James and John, three disciples of Jesus, who told him to be fishers of men. Subsequently, he stopped fishing for fish and got baptized. He began preaching, teaching, and ministering healing and deliverance to people from all walks of life.

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised. To preach the acceptable year of the Lord (Luke 4:18-19).”

Bishop Hervin Ferguson went home to be with the Lord on March 21, 2019, after a grueling battle with Pancreatic Cancer. He has fought a good fight. He has finished his course, and he has kept the faith (2 Timothy 4:7).

May his precious soul rest in peace.
