The songs you submit to our singers must be Obvious Gospel.
We promote the Gospel, not music that is borderline or hints at
the Gospel. Your lyrics must include the Christian vernacular.
We understand evangelism and trying to reach people with the
music more so than the message, but that's not what this
ministry is about. The message comes first.
If you disagree then, sorry, we can't help you, please don't apply

address is suspect or includes content that might suggest it isn’t
your personal email address.
Members must have an email address that is not related to their
employment, business, school or such like. We have had
problems in the past with such. Some employers don't appreciate
us emailing their employee at work; thus, this rule. You can have
a separate email address just for this service if you wish.
Approved E-mail Sender
We don't grant G-team membership to writers who require us to
be pre-approved to send them e-mail. We understand Spam
control and such but being pre-approved isn't practical for this

The singers who use our service don't have the time nor desire to
be pre-approved in order to contact you about your songs.

Our administrator, Mickey Mixon, believes G-team members

If your membership application is approved you will then be
required to email a demo/sample of your writing to our
You will need to include song lyrics.
Your song's demo/audio must include at least one vocalist and
one instrument. Our singers need to be able to hear someone

melody, harmony and chord progression.
Acappella isn't acceptable.
Note: While your demo doesn't have to be professionally
produced it does need to be audibly clear.
Mickey will email you more information about how to submit

membership if you prefer not to submit per our guidelines.

Mickey will discretely delete your demo, lyrics and photo after he
completes his review of them.
We are only interested in serving Christians who truly have the
Gift to write Gospel songs. Some people believe and proclaim
they have the Gift only later to realize they don’t have it, they
misunderstood a “song from the heart” to mean they had the
talent to write a song. And they wasted a lot of time, energy and
expense they could have invested in the ministry they are truly
Called to and could have been successful exercising therein
instead of pursuing a ministry they aren't qualified for.
Because of this misunderstanding and because the singers who
use this website insist on receiving songs from truly gifted
songwriters this is yet another reason why applicants are
required to submit a song demo for review.
Although Mickey has been a songwriter teacher and coach since
1988 and can often perceive if someone truly has the Gift simply
by listening to a song and/or reading the lyrics, he is cognitive of
the fact that some people are new to the songwriting ministry
and are just becoming aware they are Called to write but have
yet to develop in their talent, so he is cautious about rushing to
an incorrect conclusion. You can expect him to be honest and fair
in his judgment.
If he believes you don’t have the Gift or if you seem to be too
new to the craft of writing or undeveloped then he will indicate
that he doesn’t believe he will be able to help you place your
songs via this ministry; which is a good thing as it will save you
a lot of time and investment as well as rejection from singers.
You must submit a G-team application (below) which requires
your name, contact information and other pertinent information
for membership consideration.
You must include your first and last name. Initials are prohibited
and will automatically disqualify your application.
Upon clicking the Application Submit Button, within our
application form, your application will be automatically emailed
to our office for review and processing.
Please allow up to 14 business days for reply, it usually doesn't
take that long but we allow for 14 days in case there are internet
problems or Mickey is out of the office or he is processing a large
number of applications, etc.
When typing information into your G-team application please use
regular sentence casing. Please don’t capitalize every letter you
type into your application.
CAPITALIZING ALL THE INFORMATION IN YOUR APPLICATION
AUTOMATICALLY DISQUALIFIES YOU. YOUR APP WILL BE
DELETED WITH OR WITHOUT REPLY.
Mickey requires regular sentence casing. Obviously, email and
website addresses need to be in lowercase letters.
Replying to Mickey
This website is about communicating and networking. Our
administrator, Mickey, stays in constant contact with the singers
and songwriters who use this ministry.
One of the obligations of G-team members is to reply to Mickey
when he personally contacts them (for whatever reason) be it via
phone, fax, email, postal mail, or whichever form of
communication he chooses.
Deliberate failure to reply to Mickey is automatic grounds for
membership cancellation with or without notification. The
exemption is illness and emergencies that may prevent reply.
We are firm about this regulation.
So, do you still want to be a G-team member?
Do you agree to and accept our rules and regulations?
NOTE: G-team application must be submitted by the writer
interested in membership, not by a family member nor friend nor
office personal nor anyone else. Application submitted by anyone
other than the writer is invalid and will be declined and deleted
with or without reply. Thank you.
