John Blair, a native of Lexington, KY., joined the First West team in March 2015.
John earned his B.S. in Educational Ministries & Journalism from Campbellsville University, and a Master of Arts in Worship from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY (Major: Guitar & Minor: Voice). John has led worship, choirs, and orchestras at various churches in Kentucky, Florida, and now at First West. He has also served overseas in international missions for a year in 2010, plus led many teams for missions in the U.S. and internationally.
John enjoys the outdoors, making great music, traveling, baseball, a good movie, community in the church, spending time with family, and cheering for the Kentucky Wildcats. His ultimate passion is leading worship and equipping others use their gifts to help see people changed by the Gospel; responding in authentic worship and sacrificial living for the Kingdom. God can truly do more than what we could ever expect or assume.
John and his beautiful wife, Jennifer (he married up), live in West Monroe with their sweet daughter Rion Kate. His life verse is Acts 20:24.
