Welcome to the page representing Technology for the National Association of Pastoral Musicians! The Technology Interest Section began in 2016 as the demand grew for such an interest section on NPM’s national level. “Technology” can appear in so many avenues of ministry, and does not necessarily mean Power Points on large projection screens for contemporary worship music. “Technology” could simply reflect the use of software and “apps” (applications for your phone) to make your work more efficient. It could also describe the use of an iPad for sheet music. When used properly, “technology” can simply mean using appropriate sound systems for your worship space!
With all of these things in mind, the Technology Interest Section is meant to help people from various levels of technological prowess, at all stages of life. Our main mission is to help you learn new technologies to make your ministry more efficient and prayerful, especially in the wake of more part-time organist positions across the country (versus previously full-time jobs). More items require our attention, and technology can help us stay afloat (while also attracting new people into our ministry).
We are currently looking for more people on our steering committee! If you feel called to help with the Technology Interest Section, email Amanda at Amanda@npm.org for more information.
