Eric McAllister

In a corner of Maryland, right next to the nation’s Capital, Eric grew up in a home built on the Bible and brimming with rhythm, rhyme and melody. There, he gained a love for music before he could even walk. But it was during undergrad at St. Mary’s College of Maryland, with the help of patient parents, faithful friends and John Piper sermons, that he fell in love with the Savior. 

 

In the years that followed, he would have the honor of leading music ministries in a diversity of settings that ranged from a large church in the suburbs of DC to a church plant in Philadelphia. During that time he kept encountering a question: “how do we equip local churches to sing the timeless truths of Scripture in textured ways that faithfully embrace and transcend their cultural context?” Now, after years of performing in a variety of genres and a decade of leading worship in song, he is launching Sunday Morning Songs to create resources that will aid local churches in answering that question.

 

Eric has been privileged to contribute to several independent and national releases as a songwriter and vocalist. Eric and his wife Monielle are members of High Pointe Baptist Church in Austin, TX, where Eric serves as Director of Liturgy & Music. There—with their children Ellington, Keziah and August Xavier—they seek to build their home on the Bible while making rhythm, rhyme, and melody.
