Sojourn Church is excited to announce that Evan Acres is joining the Sojourn Church Staff Team as our Executive Assistant. Evan will be working part-time, helping to shoulder the administrative responsibilities of our growing church. Up until this point, Pastor Jason Berl has been shouldering much of this administrative responsibility. Evan’s addition will allow Pastor Jason to give more of his time and attention to building the rapidly growing Sojourn Counseling Center.
Below is a brief bio of Evan. If you get the opportunity, make sure to offer Evan and his family a hearty Sojourn Church welcome!
"Evan grew up in Warner Robins. At the young age of 16 he was radically changed by the Gospel. As his knowledge of Scripture grew, so did his passion to see people experience the transforming power of the gospel. In 2009, he spent a year serving in Costa Rica and Panama through a local mission organization. During this time a passion to pursue vocational ministry was ignited.
Once back in the states, he attended Southeastern College and Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC, where he also took part in a two-year mentorship program at his local church. While attending SEBC he met his wife, Erika. They married in 2012 and have since been blessed with two little boys, Sawyer Elliott and Merrick Lewis. In his free time, Evan can be found playing with his children, working in the yard, and enjoying sporting events."
