Incubator Creative Group is Christian music's only established Incubator organization. Like the 1,600+ other business incubators around the world, Incubator Creative Group exists to provide the unique nurturing a start up Christian music enterprise needs during the formative years. As the name implies, Incubator is a transformation experience experience specifically designed for early stage music ministries (or more seasoned performers who have retained the same 'learners' heart). Combining artist development, recording, booking, management, niche marketing and promotion, Incubator Creative Group provides a nurturing environment for the launch and expansion of not just an independent music enterprise (i.e. 'by yourself') but an interdependent music ministry (part of a relationship team). The twenty-year success story of Incubator is founded upon the promotion of the artist as a person (instead of a 'product' focus requiring servitude from the artist). A hallmark of Incubator Creative Group is a guiding value that looks to a performer's work ethic as the foundation for advancement. The goal of the company is to produce stable and sustainable music ministries that function in the specialized marketplace of local churches throughout North America, Europe and Australia.

I first connected with Incubator Creative Group in the Fall of 2003, in the midst of my growing apprehension toward the music industry. But before I tell you what I mean by 'apprehension,' let me share how I became a singer/songwriter.
I was a very quiet child. A lot of people wouldn't believe me today, especially my husband! But… Continue
To follow up from our Songwriters weekend, I want to let you hear from Incubator recording artist, Judy Deans. We are blessed to work with her and I'm pretty sure you're going to find her enthusiasm contagious!
Thank you! If the pass is clear and you feel like a day off, you are welcome to come. It will be small, we think. The Lord is blessing us in the richness of talent and gifting.
Request: We are praying for a little boy, Ezra Wells, who was taken to Harbor View on life support. He was injured pulling a tv down on himself. His parents serve a local church. And, they are expecting another child soon. His dad, a worship pastor, is a devoted musician.
