“Empowering Christian Songwriters Worldwide”


Ready to get real power in your songs?

You KNOW you’re called to write… here’s how to do it… 

It takes a lot more than information to write great songs and get them out to the world. Anyone can put words to a melody and call it a song, but that’s not good enough any more. To be heard above the noise of a million songs competing for the same airspace means you’ve got to get serious about it now and get some serious song power fast.

That’s where we come in.

NCS exists to empower Christian songwriters worldwide, from the beginner to the seasoned professional. If you’re feeling God’s call to take bold action to write real songs the whole world will love, you’ve come to the right place. 

Check out this video to hear about your next right step to fulfill this passionate call on your life.

I officially have my first song on hold!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my goodness!! I am super excited!! I wrote this song for a southern gospel group that experienced a terrifying bus accident about 6 months ago. It was risky writing it because if they don't take it, no one will since it is clearly their story. But they loved it!! Did I mention I'm excited?!!!!! Thank you John and Rob for pouring into us and making us grow even if sometimes it's painful. I listened to every word that you said and it is starting to pay off. So thank you from the bottom of my heart. 🙂

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!

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.
