The purpose of this organization shall be to increase the effectiveness of church musicians as they participate in the mission of the Church. The term “church musician” shall be interpreted to include all persons who lead or otherwise participate in church music by vocation or avocation.
The annual ADM conference has as its main focus offering programs to increase the effectiveness of musicians, clergy, and laity through the exchange of ideas, development of skills, and opportunities for fellowship as we participate in the mission of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
Anyone from any denomination or church affiliation is encouraged to consider joining ADM and participating in the organization and its annual conference. This could include choir directors, organists, musicians, handbell ringers/directors, clergy and lay persons who are interested in the musical life of their church.
Through ADM’s National Annual Conference, network and newsletters, professionals and volunteers can share resources and experiences into their common music ministry.
