My name is Chris Owenby, owner, and founder of the Resourceful Church Musician (RCM).
I’ve led music ministries and congregations in passionate worship for years.
And I want to bring all of the experience and things I’ve learned to this online platform and help church musicians like you in the important work you’re doing.
Music ministry is exciting and fulfilling!
We share in the wonderful responsibility of teaching and leading people in learning what it means to worship.
Yes, music ministry is wonderful, but it’s also tough.
(Am I allowed to say this??)
You’re allowed to say anything here in the RCM Community!

Do you prefer written articles, videos, or audio?
I want to hear from you, friend!
I’m in the business of helping church musicians like you in the super important work that you’re doing.

We’re in this together, and I’m only a quick e-mail away : )
