Bill Hackler - Keyboardist

I grew up in Chattanooga. I have a piano performance degree from UTC. I love all sorts of music and I have toured and played professionally.  I also compose music and incorporate all styles of music into our worship at St. Luke.


Jeron Devonté- Choral Music Director

A homegrown talent from the Center for Creative Arts, I attended UTC and then completed my Masters of Sacred Music in vocal performance from the University of Notre Dame.  I believe that music has the power to transport us to another time and place. I find great joy and satisfaction in making music and sharing it with those around me. As both a tenor and a trained sopranist, I love to sing all kinds of music, from classical arias to traditional spirituals to 80’s pop and even Beyonce. My heart for music extends beyond singing. I love to conduct other singers and have even started my own choir and non-profit program, B.A.T.T.L.E.
