Pastor Blair Blakeslee, and his beautiful wife Karin, currently live in Edinboro, Pa at the Edinboro Camp and Retreat Center. Together they have two daughters who are both married with a total of 3 grandsons. Pastor Blair has worked with youth for over 35 years in different capacities. He has been a youth helper, a youth leader and a youth pastor. He has also worked in a residential treatment facility for troubled youth. As of March of 2017, Pastor Blair, along with his wife, have taken over the Executive Director position at the Edinboro Camp and Retreat Center.
This has been a great opportunity for Pastor Blair to be able to work with more youth along with young and older adults. Plus, as he promotes the campground, he will be able to speak in more venues. Blair is also a very dynamic speaker and evangelist. He has been gifted with the ability to reach his audience through humor, and he captivates them through Scripture. His messages are challenging and prompt listeners toward a closer relationship with their Creator. God has used Blair at a number of different venues, including youth and college events, festivals and churches. He has also had the privilege of speaking in Indonesia and the Dominican Republic.
Pastor Blair has also written a devotional book, “40 Day Devotional Challenge, Plus 1”, which emphasizes the importance of putting one’s faith into practice. It’s based off of James 1:22 which says, “Do not merely listen to the Word and so deceive yourselves. Instead, DO what it says.” So his book gives 40 distinct challenges which will challenge the reader through reading of Scriptures and will result in Impacting lives for the Lord.
