First and foremost, Blake is a Texan (and yes, everything is bigger and better there). You’ll know that by the Texas flag hung in his office and his love for Texas Ranger Baseball. Blake loves seeing students come to understand who Jesus is in their lives. Blake has served as our Student Pastor since summer of 2016 and is continually excited about what God is doing in the East 91st family to develop students in their lives and in their faith. Blake and his wife Lydia were married in 2012 in the middle of a tornado and have been on a wild ride ever since.
Blake went to Ozark Christian College in Joplin, Missouri, where he graduated with a Bachelor’s of Christian Ministry, specializing in Student Ministry. He previously served 5 years as a Middle School Pastor in Maryland.
Blake loves cooking, running, and riding his bike, and reading in his spare time.
