What attendees are saying

Why is it worth attending NCSM?

"The worship services were especially meaningful and gave me an abundance of ideas for worship planning.  All the workshops I attended were extremely helpful and being able to network with other participants was very helpful as far as dealing with various problems in scheduling, introducing new music and/or worship ideas to congregations."

"[The sessions] gave me multiple examples and ideas of how to make worship come alive!  I am SO excited to introduce some of these ideas in my home congregation.  I will also be making a presentation to our Worship/Music ministry team, hopefully encouraging more participation by congregants in not only the planning but the worship service itself."

NCSM always brings in well-known presenters. It is also very unique to have three different denominations represented at the same event. This provides a refreshing opportunity to mingle, share, and learn from musicians from other denominations. I appreciated the timing of this event after the Advent and Christmas rush and before Lent. This is a great time to sit back, reassess, and learn.
