After a seven year “career” in corporate America, Blake was influenced by his pastor, Rev. Bill Lawson, at Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church, to turn from climbing the corporate ladder to learning, loving, and serving Jesus Christ.
Blake earned his Bachelor of Arts in political science from Southwest Texas State University, and his Master of Arts in Christian Education from Dallas Theological Seminary.
Blake has served in Youth Ministry since 1994. He was formerly the co-director of The Center for Youth Ministry at the College of Biblical Studies where he taught for seven years. Currently he is the pastor of Crossover Bible Fellowship in Houston, Texas.
