Meet Pastor Justin Unger
...
Born in Phoenix, Arizona on February 4, 1982, Justin was the middle child of three boys. His mom and dad were Christians, and Justin accepted Christ when he was just a small boy.
...
Larry was the pastor of Northwest Community Church in Phoenix and had a huge impact on Justin.
...
In fact, as Justin began writing songs as a freshman in high school, his grandpa supplied the lyrics. Their song writing drew them closer together. Even so, Justin didn't make a firm decision to serve Christ until a year later.
"Even though I grew up in a Christian home, I really didn't make it mine until my sophomore year of high school," says Justin. "High school brought me to a point of brokenness and truth."
Justin faced major persecution for taking a stand for Christ about that time, and went to his grandfather for advice and help. It was then that Justin heard his grandfather read John 15:18: "If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first." Justin remembers that evening as a turning point for him. "I rededicated my life to the Lord and decided to stop living selfishly and understand my identity in Christ."
It was when he was 17 that someone in his church donated money for Justin to go to a contest in Colorado for aspiring Christian musicians. The Estes Park Christian Music Contest had 576 aspiring entrants that year. But for Justin, it was just a blessing to go. "I had just finished my junior year and was planning to be a meteorologist," says Justin. "I was even checking out colleges (to pursue this career)."
His intention wasn't to compete. He just wanted to take a seminar. But when extra money showed up in his scholarship fund, he decided to go ahead and compete. In the end, Justin won 1st place out of all 576 applicants.
"I went home and had phone calls on the answering machine from record labels- already waiting. One of the record labels flew me and my parents out to Nashville in November, and a few months later I packed up and moved to Nashville," Justin says.
A year passed as he worked with label executives. They held on-going auditions to find a voice that matched Justin's. After a full year of auditions, they had still found no one. "No one's voice matched mine. It was really weird," Justin comments. "Then one day we got a press kit of this dude in the mail. His name was Ben. After lots of prayer and meetings, Ben and Justin became the duo: "Across the Sky".
After signing a deal in January of 2003, the band toured all through North and South America for almost 3 years.  "We toured with Avalon, Mark Shultz, and more," says Justin.
After 3 years of  what Justin refers to as "Across the Sky University", the band broke up. Justin comments, "I learned what it takes to be a minister of God's word through music in a Christian industry that is 90% secular. When it comes to the business side of things  and how it works at the record labels, it's all about how to make money."
Frustrated, Justin felt let down by the whole experience.
During his time with Across the Sky, Justin made a move that unbelievably almost cost him his career on the spot: He got married!
His wife, Falon, was also at the contest in Estes Park, and Justin was taken with her the minute he saw her. After a long-distance dating relationship, the couple married on December 6, 2003.
Now living in Franklin, Tennessee (suburb of Nashville) and in between jobs, Justin started getting offers. Among the high-profile offers (such as being a lead singer with the band "NewSong" or moving forward with a solo career), a church in Prescott Arizona called Justin and asked him to consider coming on staff as co-worship leader.
"Across the Sky had been to The Heights to do a concert in November of 2004 for the grand opening of the new building," says Justin. "I remember it being a really refreshing concert."
But Justin wasn't prepared to leave beautiful Franklin. When he got a call from The Heights asking him to pray about moving his family to Prescott and be part of the music team, Justin says, "I thought, 'No! I could never leave Franklin- I love it here.'"
Justin and Falon prayed about it anyway. Justin laughs, "Weird things happen when you pray. You get answers."
Because the offers for performing jobs involved 200 shows a year and being away from his wife and baby son, Justin began to seriously consider coming on staff at The Heights.
After visiting in November of 2005, Falon and Justin both left feeling completely at home. A feeling Justin describes as "just something that God wanted us to do."
Justin came on staff officially as co-worship leader on February 1, 2006.
...
Justin and Falon are raising their 3 children: 3 year old Carson, 2 year old Ethnie 1 year old Nolan.
Justin's solo album, "Disengage" is played on radio stations across the country as well as being sold in stores all over America. He's presently recording his latest album: Intimate Moments.

" It is much more diverse" Justin says as he describes the style of this new music.  You will hear a few strong anthemic songs that might bring goosebumps, as well as some organic like acoustic driven songs.  And of course there will be a nice balance of worship songs featured on this project as well.

- All I used to think about when the word "stranger" came to my mind was the scary ice cream man that used to drive down our street every tuesday afternoon. You know, the one that played the out of tune intercom blaring the very non-repetitive song "It's A Small World After All."  Yikes!!.  However, yes you would still find myself and my two brothers running up to the big blue van with our allowance money on occasion to get a cool afternoon treat in our little Phoenix AZ. neighborhood.  I can still hear my sweet mother reminding us that there is a "stranger danger" behind the wheel.      Ok, maybe there is a stereotype for ice cream truck drivers and he was truly just a nice old guy who loved kids and needed the summer job to pay the bills.  I bring all this up because, like a lot of people, I always have associated the word "stranger," with something negative.  But once again as I get to know our mysterious God more through His word, I am enlightened and somewhat caught off guard as I read 1 Peter 2:11-12. It says "Beloved, I urge you as aliens and strangers to abstain from fleshly lust which wage war against the soul.  Keep your behavior excellent among the Gentiles, so that in the thing in which they slander you as evildoers, they may because of your good deeds as they observe them, glorify God in the day of visitation. (NAS)
