More About Henry Blackaby, Richard Blackaby & Claude King
Henry T. Blackaby is the founder and president emeritus of Blackaby Ministries International, an organization built to help people experience God.
Born in British Columbia, Dr. Blackaby has devoted his lifetime to ministry. He has served as a music director, education director, and pastor in churches in California and Canada, as well as president of Canadian Baptist Theological College for seven years and president of the Canadian Southern Baptist Conference. He has provided leadership to thousands of pastors and laymen across North America and has spoken to missionaries and other groups in over ninety countries of the world.
Dr. Blackaby studied English and history at the University of British Columbia as an undergraduate and earned his B.D. and Th.M. from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary. He holds four honorary doctorate degrees.
In 1970, Dr. Blackaby followed God’s call to pastor a tiny church in Saskatoon, Canada. Not only did Faith Baptist Church grow to many times its original membership, but it led to the founding of thirty-eight new churches and became a center for pastoral training.
Dr. Blackaby went on to serve on staff at the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. Through the Home Mission Board, he led revival and spiritual awakening in the life of the convention. He also served as special assistant to the presidents of the International Mission Board and LifeWay Christian Resources. Although he is now officially retired, Dr. Blackaby continues to provide consultative leadership in the life of the Christian community.
Blackaby has published an array of spiritually influential messages in his lifetime, most notably Experiencing God: Knowing and Doing the Will of God (1990), which has sold 7 million copies and has been translated into over 45 languages. His books, Experiencing God Together and Experiencing God Day by Day Devotional, both won the Gold Medallion Award.
Henry lives with his wife, Marilynn, in Rex, Georgia. He has five children (Richard, Tom, Melvin, Norman, and Carrie), all of whom are serving in Christian ministry, and fourteen grandchildren. His long-range goal is to encourage revival and spiritual awakening in the United States, Canada, and across the world through speaking, praying, enlisting, writing and mentoring. His hobbies are reading and traveling.
Henry Blackaby currently resides in Rex Rex. Henry Blackaby was born in 1935.

This Book Will Have You Seeking and Believing for More of God. May 26, 2009
This is the first book I have read from the Blackaby's and I must say I am rather impressed and have been blessed by this work. Page after page I was encouraged to believe that God has more for me--spiritually speaking. The authors are not into hyping a cotton-candy, shallow experience but rather they are aiming at making strong, established disciples who are followers of, and in love with, the Lord Jesus Christ.
My next purchase is Experiencing God. If it is as half as good as this work, I'm sure it will be a spiritual masterpiece!
Annointed Writing, Anguished Cry, - Answer the Call to Revival! May 17, 2009
The Blackaby's have fast become one of my favorite Christian writers. Every work I have read has moved me to tears, prayer, and rededication. I cannot imagine being able to sit under their ministry full time! Every page of this book is annointed in a special way to lead you to think of our country, our churches, ourselves. Using wonderfully potent examples, stories, Scripture and exhortations, the Blackaby's outline a sure way to put yourself in position to be used by God, to glorify Jesus Christ, and to perform Spirit-filled service. To borrow a line from a movie, they "make me want to be a better man."
