The Village Christian Church
Shorewood Children’s Director

Abbey Akre

Abbey grew up in Lisbon, Illinois, attending West Lisbon Church, where she developed a deep love for Jesus. After graduating from Lincoln Christian University with a degree in spiritual formation, she decided not to pursue vocational ministry.

She nannied and coached in Lincoln for a while before earning a degree in physical therapy as an assistant. She worked as a PTA for a bit before transitioning her current position as an administrative assistant at Newark High School.

She also coaches freshman volleyball at the high school and enjoys spending time with her many nieces and nephews! God called her into ministry, and after some initial hesitation, she has embraced this calling wholeheartedly, ready to be a vessel for what the Lord has in store for Shorewood.
