Contact: Keith Mohr, Christian Independent Alliance, 615-594-0426
Franklin, Tenn., Jan. 11 /Christian Newswire/ -- Indieheaven, the leading Christian independent musician resource announces the next chapter in their 10 year history, "The Christian Independent Alliance." CIAlliance founder, Keith Mohr states, "After working with thousands of independent Christian artists and musicians since 1997, I believe artists of faith should be sent to the church and world by an organization who has a proven history of supporting independent Christian artists and musicians. We will accomplish this through our new non-profit, assisting members with fund raising, grants and scholarships for recording new music, and other services they need. The model is based on partnerships, memberships and strategic alliances with individuals and companies we know and trust.
Members of the CIAlliance receive 1 year membership to Indieheaven.com, discounts to CIAlliance conferences and events, the ability to raise support through the non-profit umbrella, and be eligible to receive matching grants for services offered through the alliance.
