Bishop W. Earl Bledsoe remembers as an eighth-grader driving for hours from Georgetown to his family’s new home in Levelland, where his father was appointed to serve as pastor of St Luke Methodist Church. Bledsoe graduated from Levelland High School and attended South Plains College. In 1970, he moved to Canyon where he received a degree in English, with a minor in Spanish, from West Texas State University (now West Texas A &M University).

Bledsoe worked as program director for the North Central YMCA in Amarillo; later, he became the executive director. He attended Wyatt Memorial United Methodist Church. During an event for the UMCA at Ceta Canyon Methodist Retreat and Camp Center, Bledsoe received his call to ministry. “It was a powerful moment of change,” he said. As a result, he believes in the power of Christian camping and those settings that renew and inspire the soul.
