“A man of Integrity” is a phrase that can accurately describe Bishop Samuel Raymond Blakes. Bishop Samuel Blakes was called by God at a very young age, and has been preaching the Word of God ever since.


He is the youngest son of Prophet Robert Charles Blakes, Sr., and Lady Lois R. Blakes. He is a loving father of two beautiful daughters.  He has been the Senior Pastor of New Home Family Worship Center in New Orleans, La., since 1995, and Baton Rouge, La., since 2008. Under his leadership, the church has grown tremendously from a meager amount of 14 members, to thousands today.


Bishop Samuel Blakes is a graduate of St. Augustine High School of New Orleans, La. He then furthered his education at Southern University of New Orleans and received his Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Theology from Christian Bible College, in La.


Bishop Samuel Blakes has extensively traveled to various parts of the United States and abroad, evangelizing the Word of God to a lost and dying world. Bishop Blakes is also the Second presiding Bishop of Family Of Churches Fellowship International “FOCFI”, a conglomerate of churches nationwide. He is an internationally sought after preacher because of his ability to simplify the truth of God’s Word. He is truly a man of vision, purpose and destiny and is filled with a substantial amount of wisdom, knowledge and understanding of God’s Word.


Bishop Blakes is constantly walking in the wisdom of his father, Prophet Robert Charles Blakes, Sr., and in the anointing, of the Holy Spirit. He is determined to fill God’s people with the necessary principles for Spiritual Warfare by teaching the believer how to study and effectively apply the principles of God’s Word to their lives.
