Conference Speakers

Bryan Blazosky is a pastor at Richfield Bible Church in Richfield, MN. In 2016, Bryan completed his Ph.D. in New Testament from Ridley College in Melbourne, Australia, and he continues to teach part‑time at Bethlehem College and Seminary and Central Baptist Theological Seminary in the Twin Cities. Bryan is married to Tricia, and they have three girls and one boy. In his sessions at Colonial, Bryan will explore how Biblical metaphors for the church shed light on Christ, the church, and one another.

Samuel Choi is the lead pastor of Prior Lake Baptist Church in Prior Lake, MN. Sam earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees from Northland Baptist Bible College where he met his wife, Sarah. They were married in 2000 and now have five children. In his sessions at Colonial, Sam will consider how Christ’s teaching in John 14–17 should shape our understanding of church community.
