John understands what makes a great song. His experience, wisdom, and passion are a great foundation for the classes and songwriting sessions he offers through Nashville Christian Songwriters. No matter the level of songwriter, or the audience for which they’re writing, John has very practical and timeless tips to further any artist down their songwriting journey.

John's insights into writing songs that impact listeners are some of the most powerful you'll find anywhere. His deep knowledge and experience in managing some of the top songwriters in Christian music will immediately change the way you approach your next song and propel you into the best songwriting of your life!
Branon Dempsey
CEO, Founder & Training Director Worship Team Training
John Chisum has helped us to balance on the fine line between lyrical depth, relevance, and marketability. He has encouraged us tremendously while challenging us to dig deeper and take more risks to be the best songwriters we can be!
Nashville Christian Songwriters has been a blessing and an encouragement to me. Mr. Chisum is an excellent coach, teacher and communicator...His industry experience, bootcamp, and live critiques brought to light certain aspects of my writing that was holding me back from my best and now my writing is improving with each and every new song that I write. John is an excellent resource for any serious Christian songwriter.
