Mission Statement

The Minnesota Association of Christian Songwriters is a growing local organization. Our purpose is to encourage, educate, and equip songwriters who are called to use their gifts of music and lyrics to glorify God, edify the body, and point the way to Jesus Christ. We invite you to come and enjoy meetings, even if you've never written a song. This is a good place to start! There are songwriters of all levels in MACS, and it is a blessing to be able to support and encourage each other with the precious gift that God has given us.


The Minnesota Association of Christian Songwriters began in 1989 with a vision to provide the craft of songwriting to Christian artists in the Twin Cities and surrounding areas. Since then we have experienced much growth, with a mailing list of hundreds Christian artists. In 1999 we became a non-profit organization, governed by an elected board of directors, dedicated to serving local Christian Songwriters. Some exciting events have taken place at M.A.C.S. throughout the years. M.A.C.S. has sponsored various “songwriting performances” at coffee houses, bookstores, the state Fair and Famous Dave's and churches, just to name a few. And the vision continues.
