Blake Deal first served in 2018 as an intern, but returned as our full-time family minister in January 2020. Blake is the son of two loving parents (Cynthia and Chris) and has one sister (Brooke). Blake is the proud master of an actual dragon named Jake... ok, technically it is a bearded dragon lizard. Blake is an avid Star Wars fan and can quote every Obi-Wan line, word for word, in order. He also enjoys video games, getting together with friends to play D&D creating epic stories, and he always has a fishing pole ready to go... really, go and check his spare tire hold in his car. Blake is married to his wife, Natalie.

Blake's "Life Verse" is 2 Timothy 2:15.
