Blake Appleby was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida. He lives in Central Florida and serves as the Minister to Students at the First Baptist Church of Umatilla. He is married to his wife, Meredith and they have one son, Micah Chandler.
While attending a youth camp in 2005, Blake was saved and he answered the call to serve the Lord wherever He may lead. Little did he know that God would have him enter Bible College and begin ministering to teenagers shortly after high school in a local church? Blake and his family have witnessed God’s sovereign hand at work in their lives through their obedience to Him.
Blake is a passionate communicator of the gospel. He deeply desires to see people know the Word of God and more importantly the God of the Word. He is blessed to travel throughout the year preaching the timeless truths of Scripture at weekend retreats, summer camps, and other various gatherings to students and adults.
