This outstanding webinar is now available for viewing. Find additional useful information from the panelists and the participants here.

For Individuals

We are colleagues seeking to help each other as we live out our call to minister through music and the arts.

Whether you are guiding five cherubs with a guitar or 100 singers with 200 ranks of organ pipes, running a concert series or designing the cover of your church’s worship bulletin, writing poetry or learning the first steps of sacred dance, 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. 

Though rooted in the UCC, we are happy to welcome all church affiliations.

For Churches

To list an open music position, send complete information to Ruth Striegel. 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.

A complete guide to hiring a musician is available by clicking here. It includes practical information and worksheets in a format that can be filled out on a computer. Note: no salary guidelines are provided. Compensation for Christian educators may be comparable. Consult with your UCC Conference office.
