Welcome to the Presbyterian Association of Musicians!

PAM is a national organization of the Presbyterian Church (USA) serving those who lead in the areas of worship, music, and the arts.

Mission Statement: The Presbyterian Association of Musicians believes that formative and collaborative experiences with God and neighbor nurture relationships and create community.

  • To live into this mission, we provide resources, conferences, publications, and a vast network of members who are engaged in worship, music, and the arts all across the United States and beyond.

  • Becoming a member of PAM gives you instant access to these valuable benefits which will improve your worship planning for any size church in any location with information addressing new and old issues facing all denominations.

  • Choir directors, worship musicians, organists, Christian educators, artists, clergy, and lay people will find PAM to be a valuable resource for creative and collaborative worship planning.

  • PAM is not just for Presbyterians. Other denominations find our resources, conferences, and publications helpful in their service to God. Our members represent multiple denominations including Methodist, Baptist, Episcopalian, Lutheran, United Church of Christ, Unitarian, and Mennonite!
