Blevins_Joe_1.jpg (7464 bytes)
Pastor Joseph Abraham Blevins

“The last words on his lips were ‘the Lord’.”

Born on July 17, 1946.

  An Israeli citizen, he was born in Agadir, Morocco into a Jewish Orthodox home.

Went to be with the Lord while preaching a three-part evangelistic series for the Methodist Church in Jamestown, Tennessee.

October 9, 2007


Joseph Abraham Blevins, died while preaching a three-part evangelistic series for the Methodist Church in Jamestown Tuesday evening, October 9, 2007.

“I don’t know another pastor who practiced more intentional bridge building with the community and reached out through preaching the gospel across denominational boundaries,” says Steve Haley, Vice President for Administration/Secretary for the Georgia-Cumberland Conference. “The last words on his lips were ‘the Lord’.”

As a young man he moved to New York City and was invited to join a youth group of Seventh-day Adventists. Because of this friendship, Blevins decided to become an Adventist and was baptized. His parents disowned him and he lived with the local Adventist pastor until enrolling in college. He earned an associate’s degree (Bible Worker) from Newbold College in 1967 and went on to complete a bachelor’s degree from the London School of Economics in 1969.

He served the Seventh-day Adventist Church for over 28 years working as a Literature Evangelist for the Kentucky-Tennessee Conference, District Publishing Director for the Southern Union, and Publishing Director for the Gulf States Conference. A pastor in the Georgia-Cumberland Conference of Seventh-day Adventists for 22 years, Blevins worked in the Summerville/Center Grove (Rock Spring), Ga., Churches, the Lakeland, Ga., Church, the Andrews/Murphy, N.C., Churches, the McMinnville/Spencer/Sparta, Tenn., Churches, and the Deer Lodge/Jamestown, Tenn., Churches. He was ordained to gospel ministry in 1987.

“Joe loved the Lord more than anyone I know,” says Tim Leffew, Publishing Director for the Georgia-Cumberland Conference. “I don’t know if I would be in the ministry without him.”

He is survived by wife Carol and daughters Shoshana and Katie Beth.

Joe Blevins was my friend.  When Joe walked into a room I wanted to stand... simply out of respect.

He was a man of prayer and a Kingdom Builder.  I liked that about him!  He loved the Word and was always looking for an opportunity to share it with

someone.  Joe wanted to be a blessing everywhere he went.  I am certain he has not changed his behavior but simply changed locations.
