Keith R Blades

(1953-2010)

Keith came to understand and appreciate “rightly dividing the word of truth,” Paul’s unique and distinctive apostleship, “the preaching of Jesus Christ according to the revelation of the mystery,” and the like, some 38 years ago. During these years he had the privilege of pastoring 3 churches and teaching sound Bible doctrine according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God committed to Paul’s trust.

He was born in Massachusetts, and grew up in Naples, Florida. Keith did not attend any formal schooling such as seminary or university. He was self-taught, so to speak, giving himself wholly to reading, exhortation and doctrine.

He left the States when asked to pastor an assembly in Chilliwack, British Columbia where he met his wife. He stayed there for approximately seven years and then pastored an assembly in Calgary, Alberta. He died in Calgary July 2010 at the age of 57.

While he pastored in Calgary, he had a loosely-put-together extension ministry in place whereby tapes and writings were made available for those who expressed an interest in the teaching ministry. This extension ministry continued to grow over time, so that in 1995 the decision was made to establish it as a distinct ministry. And right now, simply put, that’s what Enjoy The Bible Ministries is. It’s a distinct, stand-alone ministry through which Keith taught God’s word “rightly divided.”
