Who We Are

The BMATC is a 501c3 organization that solicits funds for scholarships for aspiring music students.  We also sponsor and produce the "Legends of Gospel" awards ceremony for legendary local church musicians.

The primary focus of the BMATC is geared toward keeping the foundation of Christian Music Standards while incorporating trending music into worship without losing the sacred and spiritual influence of God.  We want to sustain the gospel of Jesus Christ and Magnify the Lord with praise through music.

If you are remotely affiliated with gospel music, the BMATC is your source of connection. You can get acquainted with your peers in the art of music; increase your skills in the area of your choice; exchange knowledge of current musical genres, and learn the techniques and process for engaging professional artist through BMATC support and participation in local concerts. Also, upon request, through our database of musicians and local churches, the BMATC is able to provide information to fill vacancies for various music staff positions.
