I am just plain Anne (with an e); but I am passionate about life and radical about my love for Jesus. I married Gary, my high school sweetheart and the love of my life, nearly 43 years ago. Together we have traveled through many seasons of life. We feel privileged that we have had the opportunity of working together, both corporately and now in full-time ministry.
Although we have made our home in Carlinville, we appreciate all the wonderful people in the Illinois churches that have warmly welcomed us and made us feel right at home in every city we visit.
One of our greatest pastimes is spending time with our three children Kris Blanchard, Becki & Brian Schoepke, and Kym Blanchard. They have richly blessed us with nine grandchildren. Parenting may be tough in the “now,” but the reward of being “Grammie” is worth it all!
I love adventure and have found much fulfillment in operating my own business, starting a school in our last church, and serving as a ministry partner alongside my husband. Nothing, however, brings me more pleasure than investing in people. Networking and encouraging people to reach their full potential is the fuel that drives me. I value every opportunity to share time with all God’s people, whether they be believers or pre-believers.

Where was she born?
Vermont, now lives in rural Carlinville.
Mother and father, two brothers and a sister are all with Jesus. I’m encouraged by the fact that I’m surrounded by a “cloud of witnesses.” Gary is not only my husband of 43 years, but my best friend. I’m blessed with three adult children and their wonderful spouses, Kris and Kellie Blanchard, Rebecca and Brian Schoepke, and Kym Blanchard. My nine grandchildren are treasured gifts that are a constant reminder of the need to set a godly example.
Her husband, Gary, who serves as the Assistant Superintendent and Executive Secretary of the Illinois District; her children and grandchildren; her compassion for the hurting; humor and authenticity.
