The Ball Institute for Church Music

The Louis and Mary Charlotte Ball Institute for Church Music has edified congregational worship for some three decades through conferences and scholarship. The BICM is committed to promoting, conducting and publishing scholarly research in sacred music. In addition to nurturing scholarly studies, the Institute provides a growing collection of piano and instrumental literature, offers workshops for music ministers and worship leaders, and commissions new works.

A recent conference, “Text and Tunes for Today and Tomorrow,” drew hundreds for worship services and seminars led by Dr. Constance Cherry, Keith and Kristyn Getty, Graham Kendrick and Noel Tredinnick. The added benefit of the Institute’s provision is what it offers students, including opportunities to learn from those noted above, as well as the likes of Marva Dawn, Milburn Price and Don Neuen.
