Whatever the size, whatever the style, music and worship are vital components of every church's ministry. We are here to encourage and to provide resources for the development of church music leadership and ministries through training events, consultations, opportunities for fellowship, and facilitation of peer interaction and spiritual support.
The Texas Baptists Music & Worship team puts on multiple events throughout the year. Take a look and we?re sure you will find something of interest!
Our staff is available to assist music ministers, pastors and lay leaders in discovering resources or setting up consultations to help with transitioning worship in the church. Please feel free to contact Karen Witcher with any questions or requests.

Singing Men and Women of Texas
We currently sponsor six regional chapters of Singing Men and eight chapters of Singing Women of Texas. The Singing Men of Texas membership is comprised primarily of ministers of music, but also welcomes pastors, other church or associational staff members, music faculty of colleges and universities and laymen actively involved in church music ministry. The Singing Women membership includes women who are active in church music ministry or in professional positions of church music service. Generally, each chapter meets once a month for an afternoon rehearsal and evening concert.
