Welcome to the National Association of Pastoral Musicians!
Become a part of the world’s most active association of people working to promote and lead musical worship. We are a vital and growing organization of people committed to building up the community of the church and to transforming the world through sung worship.
Our mission is to “Foster the Art of Musical Liturgy.” Changing hearts through song, NPM promotes the full, conscious, and active participation of our assemblies, internally and externally, but especially through robust and prayerful song. Our association also provides training and formation for musicians and clergy in their important ministry of serving and leading communities in sung prayer.
Online Training Opportunities
In addition to our in-person training and formation opportunities provided at the Annual Convention, Winter Colloquium, Guitar and Ensemble Institute, and One Call Institute for Youth, NPM is proud to offer on-line training opportunities throughout the year.
