Generally both forms are correct, but "min far" may be felt as more formal than "faren min". In a religious context, however, one would use "vår far" (Our father = God), not "faren vår". When the pronoun comes last, the noun, as you correctly write it, will usually be determined (faren), when the pronoun comes first, the noun will be indetermined. ( Det er min bil - Det er bilen min).
