Bryan McCleery is a worship leader, recording artist, and GMA Dove Award-nominated songwriter. Since the age of seventeen, when he started writing songs in the countryside of rural Florida, Bryan felt a call from the Lord to be a messenger of truth and to bring glory to the Father through songwriting.
He is best known for his 7-year partnership with IHOPKC, ministering in the US and internationally. His songs have been recorded by artists such as Cory Asbury, UPPERROOM, Misty Edwards, The Glorious Unseen, Kaden Slay, and Ryan Kondo.
In 2012, Bryan debuted his first EP “Come Away” and it quickly gained grassroots success. He is also featured on “The Emerging Sound Vol. 2” with People & Songs, and in 2017 released his first full- length album, “Worth the Wait”, produced by Jeff Schneeweis (Steffany Gretzinger, Bethel Music, Anberlin). He is currently preparing to release his first live worship album in the summer of 2019 called “He Wears a Crown” with the support of Watershed Music Group and Capitol Christian Music Group.
At his home church in San Antonio, Texas, Bryan is invested in equipping emerging worship leaders and is committed to writing songs that are rooted in scripture, bringing glory to Jesus and revealing the character of God through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Bryan lives in San Antonio, Texas with his wife Ashley and his daughter Lily and serves as the Worship Pastor of CrossBridge Community Church.
