"NPM has helped me to grow not only as a musician but as a person of faith....As a member of NPM, I've made friends, near and far, with whom I can share 'stories of being a music minister.' It's nice to know that you don't have to figure out things on your own. Most of all, I love that the Association has continued to grow and evolve, just as the Church and its members grow and evolve."
