Description

Join us for a morning with Bishop Aaron Blake, empowering us to engage and mobilize our church to care for vulnerable children and families in our community. Please invite your pastors, church family and those in our community caring for children.

Bishop Aaron Blake brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the ministry. In 2000, he was a bi-vocational Pastor serving as a guidance counselor at Brownwood High School. One student name Melvin needed a place to call home and asked Bishop Aaron Blake for help. Having raised six children already, he and his wife Mary were experienced empty nesters. They opened their home and life changed. A year later, the Blake’s had six, new foster sons who all played on the Brownwood High football team. Mary said she couldn’t cook dinner fast enough.

The Blake’s experience and leadership ignited a call within Greater Faith Community Church to care for US orphans. Over the next decade this faithful Church of less than 200 members became family to scores of children previously living in the foster care system.

“One of the answers to changing the outcomes of thousands of children is the Church. The heartbeat of God is to care for widows (broken families) and orphans,” explains Bishop Aaron Blake.
