Association Of Lutheran Church Musicians

About Us: History

ALCM stands as a strong and successful service and professional organization, with membership close to 1500, dedicated to the cause of strengthening the ministry of music in the Lutheran Church. It serves through a wide range of publications, conferences, and local, regional, and national events. ALCM is widely recognized as a significant force in Lutheran church music.

Membership is drawn from all major Lutheran bodies and is open to all church musicians, full-time and part-time, and to others who share the goals of the body.

ALCM goals include:

Strengthening our Lutheran liturgical heritage

Defining and supporting the role of the church musician, full-time and part-time

Espousing professional standards

Encouraging spiritual growth

Fostering professional exchange

Guidelines for employment

Advocating college and seminary training in liturgy and music

Strengthening professional relationships between
clergy and musicians

It has been estimated conservatively by those familiar with Lutheran church attendance statistics that the ALCM members who actively lead church music each week touch the lives of nearly a half million individuals each month. Therefore, the chief goal of the Association of Lutheran Church Musicians remains the impetus given to each member to excel in the exalted task of leading members of the Body of Christ in praise of their Creator, Redeemer, and Sanctifier.
