Philip Newton has served since 2005 as Director of Music Ministries at St. Timothy's Episcopal Church, Signal Mountain, Tennessee. He holds degrees from Georgia College and State University, the University of Chicago, Teachers College, Columbia University, and Emory University.
Philip spent 25 years as a secondary social studies educator, specializing in law-related education. He was Project Coordinator for a federally funded law-related education project at Teachers College, Columbia University, and returned to his Georgia classroom to build a local mock trial program. This program grew into a statewide Georgia Mock Trial Competition, sponsored by the Young Lawyers Division of the State Bar of Georgia. Georgia teams have won four national champion titles.
Having been a part-time church musician for most of his life, Philip discerned a call to full-time music ministry and left the mock trial program to pursue graduate music studies. He completed a Master of Sacred Music degree, with an emphasis in choral conducting, at Emory University in 2004. Called to serve St. Timothy's, Philip has developed a graded choir program for children, with the older children participating in the curriculum of the Royal School of Church Music in America and attending summer courses. He worked with parish musicians to create Zammarin, an intergenerational group of singers and instrumentalists who, with workshop guidance from Fran McKendree, have created a musical repertoire that supports liturgical worship. McKendree produced the first of the ensemble's three professionally recorded CDs.
Philip holds the Service Playing and Colleague certificates from the American Guild of Organists, and is a member of both the Atlanta and Chattanooga chapters. He is a long-time member of the Cathedral of St. Philip in Atlanta, and sang with its choir in the summer of 2007 in residencies at St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin, and Westminster Abbey, London.

Evie Durant is very excited to take on this new role for St. Timothy’s! Evie was baptized at St. Timothy’s way back in... well let’s just say a long time ago... and it has been her home parish ever since. She has been a bit of a roamer, living in South Carolina, outside Chicago, and in Brooklyn, but St. Timothy’s has always been a nice welcome home! Evie has degrees in theatre and studio art, and loves teaching and sharing her skills and talents with children more than anything! Watching creativity, ingenuity, and imagination happen makes her heart happy. Serving the children of St. Timothy’s is a wonderful way to tie all the many artistic aspects of her life to her faith and service.
