Singing and songwriting has been a passion of Pastor Peter since his early teens. Pastor Unger wrote most of these songs as an extension of his ministry; they were performed during worship services, weddings, funerals, conferences, and a variety of other church gatherings. The greatest reward Pastor Unger has received from his music is the assurance by many of the comfort, hope, and mediated sense of Christ’s presence it brought them.
Peter’s music features organic guitar work and poignant lyrics with a focus on hope and faith in today’s challenging world. Peter’s latest song is titled “Song for Peace.” The single will be added to the Songs of Grace album and is available on most digital outlets.
