PAM Conferences—the Presbyterian Association of Musicians (PAM) is a national organization of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) for people who are involved in the areas of worship, music, and the arts. PAM is committed to strengthening and enriching worship, the very heart of the church’s life and ministry.


Chip Andrus, pastor at South Salem Presbyterian Church, South Salem, New York, is now available to lead workshops, retreats, educational events, or help with any type of gathering centered on worship, liturgy, the sacraments, daily prayer, or spiritual practices.

A gifted teacher, pastor, musician, and worship leader, Chip is well equipped to provide continuing education for pastors, elders, and church members, including training for ruling elders commissioned to pastoral ministry (formerly commissioned lay pastors). He can lead workshops at presbytery meetings, Committee on Preparation for Ministry retreats, or at other types of events where such education is needed. Chip brings knowledge of the General Assembly Mission Council (GAMC) and its resources, as well as practical experience as a pastor. 

The Office of Theology and Worship and GAMC will pay for Chip’s honorarium. We ask that you simply pay for his travel, room, and board. This is a way for the GAMC and Office of Theology and Worship to make more intentional partnerships with local churches and presbyteries, in order to enhance communication, help with continuing education, and build lasting relationships.

Chip is available for only a certain number of dates this year. To learn more or schedule an event, you may email Chip directly.
