Associate Director of Youth
After graduating from Tascosa High School in 2010, Blake began pursuing his childhood dream of building roller coasters and attended Amarillo College and later West Texas A&M for engineering. During the time spent in college, Blake became involved in the College/ Young Adult ministry at First Pres, and became good friends with Kim Talley. After several mission trips, many Bible studies, and years of fellowship the seeds of ministry were planted.
In 2016 Blake graduated from West Texas A&M and shortly after moved to Nashville to begin pursuing his career. During the season spent in Nashville, he became heavily involved in the youth leadership of a church plant. He realized that his true passion was leading middle school/high school aged kids. After patiently waiting for the Holy Spirit to guide his next steps from the engineering world to ministry, he felt led to move back to Amarillo in 2019. He desires to be the mentor and friend he needed when he was younger for the youth in the Amarillo area. You can run into him almost any day at the town club, or any random coffee shop digging into the next book on his list.
