Cheri was born and raised in Dallas, Texas, where she met and married her husband, Aric, in 1993. They moved to Forney the same year. Together they have five children: three sons and two daughters, as well as two daughters-in-law, one son-in-law, and two grandsons! The Akers family began attending c|Life in the Spring of 2009, and Cheri joined the c|Life Staff in 2016. Working for c|Life at the Forney campus has filled a long-time desire to work in an official ministry capacity, and she loves every minute of it. One of her favorite things about her ministry is the opportunity to partner with families to lay the foundation of faith in our youngest congregation members!
