UCCMA Virtual Choir Project

UCCMA Virtual Choir Project

We want to hear your voice and see your face! Our Composition Chair, Dr. Keith Hampton, is volunteering to create a Virtual Choir Video for UCCMA, using “Bring Us Peace” (SATB, a cappella) by Michele Hecht. This is an opportunity for you or any of your singers to participate in a virtual choir, and to have a video that you can freely use for worship or inspiration for your choir.  We need your videos by March 1, so the video can be ready by March 21.

We are colleagues seeking to help each other as we live out our call to minister through music. Whether you are guiding five cherubs with a guitar or 100 singers with 200 ranks of organ pipes, you are welcome to join us and become a part of the vast reservoir of resources and knowledge that we collectively offer to each other. 

For Churches

To list an open music position, send complete information to Greg Chestnut. Your listing will appear in the job listings page of the website and in our newsletter.

We also offer an institutional membership for up to six staff members of one church or organization to join us for one fee. More information is here.

From Our President

The United Church of Christ Musicians Association is a vibrant national grassroots organization of musicians and pastors (of any denomination) who are continually seeking new ways to worship, connect and uplift people through music and the arts. Every two years, we host a three-day national conference in the summer, each time in a different area of the U.S. It is filled to the brim with outstanding directors, clinicians, performers and worship experiences. It is a time for church musicians and pastors to learn, experiment, connect and grow. Our next conference will be held in Glastonbury, CT, July 8-11, 2021. 

We offer to our members:

  • Three professional journals per year
  • Six digital newsletters per year
  • Access to membership directory and job listings
  • Regional workshops
  • Discount on national conferences
  • Support from the Board of Directors
