Welcome to the online world of The Northern California Chapter of the Gospel Music Workshop of America. We are thrilled that you have taken time to visit and hopefully consider being a part of this music ministry.

The Gospel Music Workshop of America is one of the best opportunities to learn and practice the art of Gospel music and ministry. GMWA has launched the careers of many gifted songwriters and artists who have risen to achieve great things in their music ministry.

The Northern California Chapter is based in the Bay Area of California. Members come from all over the northern California area to participate in this anointed ministry.

Join us as we travel on a path set forth for us by God continuing in the vision of one of the greatest gospel music artists of all time - the late Rev. James Cleveland.
