Blaine was baptized at the Southeast Church of Christ (at that time known as Highland Hills) in San Antonio, Texas in 1963. He married Donna Burks in 1971. They have three children and seven grandchildren. Blaine received his undergraduate degree from Southwest Texas State University in Business. In the Air Force he continued his graduate education at the Air University with a concentration in International Affairs completing study in 1993.
Blaine has served as a Deacon and Elder in several congregations in Texas and Maryland over his career and moves as an Air Force Officer. Immediately preceding his retirement as a Chief Financial Officer in the Pentagon and move to our area Blaine Worshiped at the Huntingtown and Calvert County Churches of Christ in Maryland. He served as an Elder at the Huntingtown congregation. He and his wife, Donna, retired in Botetourt County in 2014. He still returns to the Calvert Congregation to assist in teaching and preaching as this is a new Church planting. His greatest desire is to see the Dale Ridge Congregation and greater Roanoke Valley grow in New Testament Christianity, a love for the Lord, and ultimately, for each of us to be true disciples of Christ while leading others to Christ.
