3 Questions with Everyday Sunday
Rock band Everyday Sunday sprang from a close-knit youth group in their hometown of Columbus, Ohio. The young group’s sincere passion combined with lead singer Trey Pearson's songwriting ability quickly established them as an instrumental part of their community. Before long, they were opening for bands like Skillet, La Rue, Plumb, Pax 217, Earthsuit and All Star United, and landing the #11 position on the Christian Rock radio charts with their single “Just a Story” from their 2001 independent release Sleeper.
Their latest album Anthems of the Imperfect is heavy on intricate guitar arrangements since they’ve added a second guitar player, and they'll remind you of Relient K (minus the quirky lyrics).
I picked Trey’s brain for TitleTrakk, and here’s what he had to say:
Tracy: How did you come to know the Lord?
Trey: I grew up in a very strong Christian home. I’ve believed in God and had a personal relationship with the Lord ever since I can remember. I never used to know how to answer that question, because I didn’t have a huge testimony about what I came out of. But as I grew older I realized how amazing a testimony it is to be close to God your whole life. I realized that His plan is way better than mine.
What do you do to relax?
I love hanging out with my family and friends at church while I’m home. It’s awesome when we get to be at our home-church on weekends, and I get to help out with our youth group. I love going to concerts, eating out, bowling, coffee shops, hanging out at friend’s house’s, playing ping-pong, swimming, throwing baseball, playing basketball, yard football, and volleyball.
How do you stay on track spiritually?
I strive to stay in God’s Word and talk to Him throughout the day. I also set aside a certain time to spend in prayer. It’s important that we come together to worship God and fellowship as a body, with accountability. That’s a huge deal.
