Free membership and conference registration!
In a partnership with PC(USA)’s Financial Aid for Service, PAM is offering up to 70 free 2023 memberships and 2023 online Worship & Music Conference registrations* to pastors and church musicians who are in their first call.
The purpose of this offering is to best support first call worship leaders needing continuing education, but not always having the funding available to do so; to introduce first call worship leaders to the Call to Worship and the Presbyterian of Musicians (PAM) through the membership and Worship & Music conference; to introduce these individuals to Financial Aid for Service.
All pastors and musicians currently serving in their first call and not a current or previous member of PAM are eligible for this gift.
To join the first call community and receive a free PAM membership and Worship & Music Conference registration, email contact information and the church name to firstname.lastname@example.org, subject: First Call Community.
*The online registration may be converted to a discounted in-person registration.
There are no upcoming events scheduled at this time. Check back soon for an update!
