Director, The Vine Worship & Young Adult Ministry

Jeff BlakeBlake, Jeff & Family

Jeff is our Director of Contemporary Worship and College Ministry.  He has been involved in church leadership in various capacities for more than 20 years.  The last 6 of those years have been full-time here at First Centenary.

This is actually Jeff’s second time around at First-Centenary as his father, Wayne Blake, was the church’s youth director in the mid 80’s.  Jeff states that, “having participated in children’s choirs here all those years ago, it is very special to come back and be a part of the leadership of this great church.”

Jeff was born and raised in Chattanooga where he attended Red Bank High School, Chattanooga State, and the University of Tennessee, Chattanooga.  He and his wife Christy have two young sons, Brycen and Drew.  He has a large family who all reside in Chattanooga as well.

“I’ve lived here all my life.”  Jeff says.  “This city has seen the best and worst of me.  I can’t imagine trying to share the gospel anywhere else but Chattanooga and, specifically, First Centenary United Methodist Church.”

 

 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” JEREMIAH 29:11
