Unity Christ Church is happy to welcome Alan Ernst as our new Music Director / Minister of Music. Alan, who became a member of UCC in the spring of 2015, brings a fresh and inspiring energy to our Music Program through his beautiful piano music and delightful voice.
Alan has over 35 years of experience in instrumental and choral music, through both sacred and contemporary worship and praise. Having been a long-time musician in church and school-related music programs, Alan took on various leadership roles and honed his skills by conducting choral and instrumental groups; accompanying soloists, choirs, and ensembles; and performing as a soloist for weddings, funerals and special occasions. These experiences, coupled with Alan’s undergraduate studies in music, led to his great success.
Since moving to St Louis, Alan has been the congregational accompanist and a so- loist for two local churches, including Unity Church of Peace.
A wonderful bonus for our community is that Alan shares in Rev. Sallie Fox’s vision for creating a smoother, more enhanced worship experience through inspirational music and message. Alan also takes great joy in helping to create the safe space and welcoming opportunities for musical participation by those in our own ministry who wish to share their talents.
We are blessed and honored to now have Alan with us at Unity Christ Church, and we look forward to many opportunities to enjoy and be uplifted by his beautiful music.
