About Pete Einstein
When Pete Einstein founded SonPower Ministries, he felt a burden to sing in a way that would glorify the Lord, while capturing the spirit of today’s Christianity. By combining a contemporary vocal style with lyrics straight from God’s Word, he has been able to create music that touches the hearts and lives of people living in a lost and hurting world. Growing up in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, Pete cut his teeth on jazz, pop music and rhythm and blues. His soul groups backed up many of the top Motown acts which visited the region. His musical travels took him from Miami, to Tucson and Los Angeles, where he got caught up in occult and New Age practices.
Listen to Music Samples:
Pete married Fran, his wife, and adopted her son in 1979. He gave his life to Christ in 1981 and went through ten years of spiritual growth and seasoning before writing and recording the “new songs” God had placed upon his heart. Although he neither reads nor writes music, Pete has composed a number of original songs. In March 1997, he completed his first full-length CD of original music entitled Work To Do. Two songs from that album won recognition in the Billboard International Songwriters Contest. Several years ago, Pete released Jubilation Journey, a CD which explores the joy and the struggles of the contemporary Christian experience.
Today, he and Fran travel extensively as “Urban Missionaries,” ministering in music and the spoken Word in churches, special events, conferences and retreats. In addition, he and Fran have hosted a series of 16-week “relationship discovery” classes for couples in their home.
Pete also provides extensive ministry through-out the PA state penitentiary system and facilitates a weekly discipleship class at Cumberland County Prison, on the outskirts of Carlisle, PA. He has graced the stage with numerous nationally-recognized Gospel artists and has appeared at several major Christian music festivals. No matter what the venue, Pete offers fresh, relevant vocal performances with a Christ-centered message ... right from the soul. He is a bold communicator whose Spirit-filled music and challenging teaching will minister to hearts of all ages.
