Middle River Baptist Church Member and State Disaster Relief (DR) Director George Blevins has been known in the Maryland/Delaware DR world for 20 years. On Jan. 27, Blevins received the 2015 Southern Baptist Disaster Relief Distinguished Service Award, Region 1 at a ceremony at an annual DR Conference in Hendersonville, Tennessee.
In nominating Blevins, Ellen Udovich, the Mid-Atlantic Baptist Network’s disaster relief missionary, who acts as a liaison between national disaster needs and Blevins, the churches and DR workers, cited Blevins’ consistent service along with his “servant’s heart.”
“George quietly works behind the scenes to do whatever it takes to accomplish the mission,” Udovich wrote in a recommendation letter. “George has set a high bar for service and continues to influence those around him to do likewise.”
