BIMI Missionary Ferrell Kearney Home with the Lord

Missionary Ferrell Kearney went Home to be with the Lord on Monday, August 22, 2016, at 11:10 p.m. (EST). Ferrell and Barbara Kearney were accepted as missionaries with BIMI in November 1965. After completing their deputation, they spent six years in Iceland before going to England in 1973 where they served for 30 years in full-time ministry. During that time they were involved in church planting, education, and summer camp ministries. From 1973 to 2003 the Lord used them in establishing and building four churches.

Since 2004 the Kearneys returned to Great Britain for short-term ministries in eight churches to allow the missionaries to take short furloughs. From 2005 to the present, Barbara and Ferrell have made their home on the BIMI campus in Harrison, Tennessee. While living on the BIMI Campus, they have been involved in various helps. Brother Ferrell has worked with the maintenance crew in constructing eight houses and in caring for the grounds, mostly mowing lawns.

Ferrell was an active member of Lakewood Baptist Church in Harrison, Tennessee, serving the Lord as a deacon, a teacher, and a soul winner. He was a godly mentor to many.
