Northville Baptist Church in New Milford will celebrate the installation of its new pastor Jan. 22 at 10 a.m.
Fergins Jr. is originally a native of the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.
He graduated from Elim Bible Institute in Lima, N.Y., with a pastoral ministry diploma in the spring of 2006.
After Elim, Fergins spent six months serving as a missionary in Northern Ireland and Serbia through Youth With A Mission.
In 2013, Fergins earned a master of divinity degree from Moravian Theological Seminary in Bethlehem, Pa.
Fergins initially planned on being a professor of American Christian history after seminary, but he was called to pastoral ministry.
Before accepting the call to serve as Northville Baptist Church’s, Fergins ministered as a pastoral intern, chaplain and associate pastor.
The pastor and his wife, Lindsey, were married in February of 2016 in Columbus, Ohio.
They are expecting their first child this summer.
