CHURCH MUSIC, CHURCH and DENOMINATIONAL RESOURCES

Welcome to the Church Music Resource Page! 
I created this because I have strong interests in religion, spirituality, ministry, and theology as well as music. I have always wanted to be connected to these fields and sometimes, I feel that perhaps I should have gone to Seminary. In fact, I hope to do that one day! I feel lucky to know many different kinds of ministers and a few theological scholars.
You will find many denominational organization links, sacred music links and resources, lectionary and planning resources, theology and hymnology links, online hymnal & midi files, info on various religions, and more. I hope that you will find this page useful. I am the Director of Music Ministry at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in New Orleans, LA. Please feel free to send me an email if you have a link suggestion or if you would like your own resource link added. Some of my favorite links have a : ) by them!
