Elder Chairman


How did the Lord save you?

I trusted in Christ as a boy of seven years old at the church my family took me to from birth. Evangelistic services were going on when I first heard the call of God on me. I prayed to receive Christ with my father.

What do you enjoy most about the ministry at Northwest Community Church?

I appreciate the commitment to the Word of God in teaching, preaching, and practice.

How long have you served here?

I have been an active part of Northwest Community Church since 2013.

What is special about Northwest Community Church?

NCC is special in its desire to live by the authority of scripture without compromise.

Where did you grow up?

I was born in Philadelphia, PA and lived there until I was 10 years old. Cheyenne and Casper, WY is where most of my life has been lived until 2009, when we moved to the Phoenix area.

Are you married? How many children (and grandchildren) do you have?

I have been married to Melody Renee Blakemore since 1971.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

Spending time with my three children and all my grandchildren is my most enjoyable time. Flying airplanes, riding motorcycles, and attending concerts and sporting events are also free time events for me.
