Blair is a graduate of Virginia Tech where he also served as a campus minister for several years. After moving to Florida to continue his ministry in 2007, his wife made him aware of the atrocity of human trafficking. While it struck a cord with him, at the time he thought, “I’d love to do something to stop it but what can I do? I’m not a lawyer, police officer, or social worker.” After a few years passed, he considered the things that he is passionate about and human trafficking kept coming to mind. At that moment, God’s Spirit spoke to his heart and asked, “What are you doing about it?” His answer was, “Nothing.” For him, compassion must lead to action. That’s when he found Florida Abolitionist.
Blair loves to help others find practical ways to be involved. He believes that we can all do something to join in the fight against human trafficking. None of us should be stuck feeling like he did, with a desire to help, but no way to do it. That’s why he began serving as the volunteer coordinator. Over time his volunteer role grew to a full-time capacity and he now serves as the Associate Director.
When he has free time, you’ll often find him spending time with his family, running, swimming, or cheering for the Hokies.
