GMA offers all domestic members the opportunity to find affordable health, dental, life and many other insurance coverages for themselves and their families through our partnership with Pancoast Benefits.

Stay In The Know

The GMA curates a weekly newsletter for all of our members with the most important news they need to know about the Christian Music genre. GMA Professional Members also receive a special monthly newsletter highlighting the latest music business and industry news.

Support the Mission

As a member, your annual investment help support the GMA’s service initiatives. These efforts include supporting the “band wives” of our touring musicians by providing childcare and brunch events to encourage and connect them, mixers to connect and invest in our young professionals, and more.


The GMA Honors event celebrates individuals and organizations that are impacting our culture for Christ, both past and present.  In addition, the event inducts four new members into the GMA Gospel Music Hall of Fame.
