The Gary Chapter is affiliated with the International Gospel Music Coalition, Inc., under the leadership of Int'l Board President, Pastor and Recording Artist, Elder DeAndre Patterson. Formerly, The Chicago Musician's Coalition, founded by the late Lavelle Lacy, the Coalition is about fellowship with one another, education of all and edification of the Body of Christ.
We gladly engage with Pastors and Music Ministry leaders who are seeking assistance in these areas by offering our assistance through workshops, conferences and other mediums. We connect with veteran leaders with extensive experience to gain and share information that will make the local church's music ministry better, and that, for the glory of God.
We furthermore seek to provide mentorship and leadership to young musicians, singers, directors who are serious about the ministry of music in the local church and be a help and assistance to those in leadership, helping to grow and develop an enhanced music program.
