Blake and Rebecca (Becca) Jenkins have been married for 6 years and have one very active toddler, Thomas. Blake spent the first few years of his life on Sand Mountain in northeast Alabama, but has lived the majority of it in Birmingham. Becca was born in Charlotte, North Carolina, but was raised in Sumter, South Carolina. And even though they went to different universities (Blake—University of Alabama; Becca—Clemson University) they met during one of their college summers working for Student Life Camps. The rest is history!
They started out their marriage in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, where Blake was an Associate College Minister at Calvary Baptist Church. It was also there that Becca started her middle school teaching career. During this season, Blake worked at the church while also commuting to Birmingham to complete the Master of Divinity program at Beeson Divinity School. Upon completion of his degree, he took the position of Young Adult Pastor at Ingleside Baptist Church in Macon, GA, where they served for two and a half years before Blake joined the team at Dawson in June 2018 as our College Minister.
They enjoy spending time with friends and family, going out on date nights to good local restaurants, watching long TV shows/movies, and going on family walks with their golden retriever, Leeroy.
