Blake worked his way through college doing carpentry work and construction management and earned a bachelor's degree at Christ for the Nations in Dallas, Texas.

Blake married Mindy (Adams) in 1998, and she works as church secretary and children's ministry coordinator at Bethalto Church of God. They have two children, Bella, 16, and Eli, 13.
