Evan Akers has served as the Directory of Liturgy and Music at Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church where he has imposed his musical views on the parish since the spring of 2013. He is responsible for the parish’s Adult Choir and Chirpers Children’s Choir, overseeing all parish musical activity, and occasionally dabbling in Liturgical matters. Though he’s only been at Sacred Heart a short time, he’s been blessed to serve such a caring and spiritual congregation.
Evan is a transplant from North Judson, Indiana – a town known best for its abundant (and fragrant) mint farms. He graduated from Valparaiso University with a degree in organ performance and went to Indiana University to begin his Master’s Degree.
Evan is married to Mary and together they have three wonderful children.
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, as in all wisdom you teach and admonish one another, singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.” –Colossians 3:16
