Supporting Music Ministries Since 2010

The Southern Gospel Music Association of Mississippi was founded in 2010 to promote Gospel music throughout the state, to bring ministries closer to Christ, and to provide new opportunities for its member ministries.


A Widely Diverse and Eclectic Membership

The member ministries of The Southern Gospel Music Association of Mississippi are as widely varied as the methods we may use to worship, ranging from smooth professionalism to edgy, down-home styles filled with enthusiasm.

Four Meetings A Year, All Around Mississippi

We have all-member meetings on the second Saturday of January, April, July, and October, with the location varying around the state. All are invited to come hear and participate in this glorious Gospel celebration!
