Pastor Rollin J. “Skip” Blackburn

Pastor Skip and his wife Nancy have been serving together at Woodlyn Baptist Church since 1981. He has two adult children, Erin and Alicia. Skip graduated from Reformed Episcopal Seminary (RES) in 1979, where he met Pastor Steve. Skip finished his schooling in 1998, earning his PhD from Temple University. His greatest passions are the Bible and biblical thinking. Because of his commitment to the study of biblical languages (Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic) Pastor Skip was called to carry on the work of his mentor Dr. Milton C. Fisher teaching the Old Testament at Reformed Episcopal Seminary. He is now Professor of Biblical Languages and Literature at RES and is Chairman of the Bible department. At Woodlyn Baptist, his primary focus is teaching the Bible, teaching Sunday School, and occasionally preaching. Skip leads several Bible studies. He is often mistaken for a custodian or sound technician for some reason.

“Consider how I love Your precepts;
Revive me, O LORD, according to Your lovingkindness.
The entirety of Your word is truth,
And every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever.”
— Psalm 119:159-160
