Welcome to the
Western States Gospel
Music Association!

Welcome to the WSGMA Website! We appreciate you stopping by and would like to hear from you. If you have any comments or questions please use the information on the Contact Page and we will be in touch.

The Western States Gospel Music Association exists to extend the acceptance, influence and use of traditional gospel music in churches throughout California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada and Arizona. Through the responsible, professional, positive and sensitive use of our talents and resources, we are determined to spread the gospel of Christ to uplift and encourage believers, and witness to those that are hurting.

There is information here on all of the artists that make up the WSGMA and if you are an artist or a promoter looking to be connected with a southern gospel association, we hope you check us out.

Bidding Farewell to the Shaw Family Band

The Shaw Family Band joined the WSGMA earlier this year and in just a few months time, much has changed for the family. This summer they embarked on a 50 plus day tour. Enjoying acceptance wherever they ministered, the family felt that God was opening the door for full time ministry and touring. When you see door opening and feel a sense that now is God's time to move, you do just that.

Although we are sad to see them leave the association, we want them to follow God's leading and ask His blessing on them, meeting every need and spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ with spirit filled effectiveness. Join us in praying for them as they are obedient to what God has called them to do. Send them a note letting them know you are doing just that. Their contact information is below:
