Cross & Culture Series

As All Saints seeks to “live as the body of Christ in Austin for the world” we are continually asking how we are called to engage with the culture of which we find ourselves a part. The Cross & Culture series is a launching pad for thoughtful discourse on the dynamic and complex parts of our culture in which we participate daily, including everything from music and literature to movies and politics.

Music As Mission

Our Spring Cross & Culture event featured a concert by acclaimed singer-songwriters, Jon Guerra and B. Sterling Archer and focused on how God gifts and calls songwriters to use their music to extend His kingdom! Co-hosted this year with Christ the King PCA, Austin, we enjoyed an evening of beautiful, original music and inspiring conversation about song-craft, calling, and reaching the world through music. 

Singer-Songwriters

B. Sterling is a songwriter that truly draws you in with his dynamic vocals and refined, compelling lyrics…not to mention great stage banter. His music pulls from different styles; but, he’s always focused on carefully crafted words. A seasoned songwriter and performer, he’s toured extensively throughout the country playing large venues, listening rooms, festivals, and house concerts over the past decade. He’s always eager to hear and share a stirring song or a captivating story.
Jon Guerra is a singer-songwriter who writes devotional music - “less Sunday morning worship music and more Monday morning prayer music,” he describes. In an interview with The Gospel Coalition, Jon cites widespread influences like George Herbert, Bob Dylan, Radiohead, Keith Green, and Fanny Crosby. His latest album "Keeper of Days" has drawn a dedicated fanbase worldwide. Additionally, he and his wife contributed music to "A Hidden Life" (2019) by Terrence Malick. He recently moved from Chicago to Austin, TX with his wife and daughter.
