Blaine, a former youth pastor, and Abigail, a former junior high teacher, have an intra-state marriage. He’s from the far reaches of Oregon and she from the Texas Hill country of San Antonio. She went to Churchill High School and later on to Texas A&M. They met at Dallas Theological Seminary. Seven years after getting married, they headed out with three kids to France as missionaries, and when they came back to the United States, four and a half years later, the number of children had doubled to six.

They enjoy sending time with their family of five boys and a girl. Their oldest is almost 13 and the youngest starts kindergarten this year. They have an obnoxious standard poodle, who sports a punk rocker look, and they have four young chickens, one of whom looks more like a baby ostrich. The Butchers love Jesus and are excited about what God is doing in and through the people who are Rockhills church!
