Pastor Annie Blackmon is a woman of God who ministers the word of God with a prophetic voice. She not only reaches and and teaches the word of God, but also reaches her hands amidst the community to serve the needs of God’s people on every level. Her utmost desire is to educate God’s people to live a life of freedom and abundance. Pastor Annie felt the sincere need for a school in the Pike County area where students could receive an excellent education in a Christian environment, therefore New Life Christian Academy was founded in 1990. As a spiritual leader, she reaches the unsaved, unchurched, and uncommitted with the life changing word of God. She has been married to Pastor Willie Blackmon for over 25 years and they both share two daughters, a son-in-law and two handsome grandsons.
