Ezek. 33: 3-9 have been instrumental verses guiding SonPower Ministries since its inception. To paraphrase: The Lord appointed Ezekiel as a watchman over the land. If trouble came and he “blew the trumpet” or warned the people, one of two outcomes would occur. If a person heard, but did not heed the warning and perished, his blood would be on his own head. If someone heard and took the warning to heart, his soul would be delivered. If, however, the watchman saw “the sword come” and did not warn the people who then perished in their iniquity, God would require the blood of the watchman to satisfy the transgression.

At the onset of SonPower Ministries, Pete Einstein was commissioned to speak out against the dangers of New Age Occultism. This seemed a logical starting point since he had been a willing participant in the New Age Movement for a number of years. As Pete continued to point to the saving grace of Jesus Christ as an alternative to what the world had to offer, an evangelistic component became firmly entrenched in the message of SonPower Ministries. Shortly thereafter, Pete felt compelled to broaden his message to include contemporary issues with which a wider spectrum of people were struggling. It was than that he incorporated his “soul” music into the ministry as ammunition to pave the way for God’s Word.

From the lyrics of his songs, to the scriptural studies which followed, Pete Einstein’s message has remained constant: Jesus Christ shed His blood, died and rose again, so that our sins might be forgiven. By receiving the gift of salvation, all who receive Jesus as Savior and Lord can have a personal relationship with Him that will endure, both on this earth and for eternity in a place called Heaven.

But God was not done pruning and shaping “the watchman.” Within the past several years, Pete felt compelled to stretch beyond his comfort zone of “evangelist” and pursue what he calls ‘the hard work’ of discipleship. That led to intense spiritual preparation and study under wise teachers, which has resulted in very specific efforts in the area of mentor-ministry and disciple-making
