Blake and his wife Kelly have four children. Blake graduated from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in 2005 with his Undergraduate Degree in Theology. Later, in 2008, he graduated from Southwestern Seminary with his Masters Degree in Religious Education and has also completed his Masters Degree in Divinity. He completed his DMin at New Orleans Theological Seminary in 2015. Other than spending time with his family, Blake enjoys bass fishing, hunting, CrossFit training, and reading.

Blake came to faith in Christ on April 14, 2000, after spending many years of his life believing he was saved. At the age of nine he had gone forward in a church service and told the pastor "I believe in Jesus," the next Sunday he was baptized. Sadly, it was only an act of going through the motions. There was no sincerity of heart.

However, at the age of 24, he finally realized that salvation was not about going through the religious motions. Instead salvation involves a total surrendering of one’s life to Christ as Savior and Lord. This involves repentance and faith. Repentance is a change of mind, which results in a changed behavior and faith is more than belief, its commitment.

Thus, on April 14, 2000, by God’s grace, turning away from living life for himself and completely surrendering to Jesus as Savior and Lord, Blake became a new man in Christ. His life has never been the same since!

He enjoys reading Christian classics. His favorite books consists of:

  • “The Glory of Christ” by John Owen
  • “Pilgrims Progress” by John Bunyan
  • “The Soul-Winner” by C.H. Spurgeon
  • “The Kneeling Christian” Author Unknown
  • “The Cost of Discipleship” by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
  • “Mere Christianity” by C.S. Lewis

His life verse: “But I count my life of no value to myself, so that I may finish my course and the ministry I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of God’s grace.” - Acts 20:24
