Welcome to TMA!

Let us help YOU get to the next level! Click here to let us know how we can help.

Since 2005 The Management Agency (TMA) has been providing the very best in artist management & development support, production and marketing for artists (both labeled and indie alike), ministries, and other faith-based businesses needing professional services so they can focus on what they do best. Our services include:

  • Artist Management
  • Crowd-Funding
  • Capital Fund-Raising
  • Non-Profit Consulting
  • Artist Development (all aspects)
  • Tour Management
  • Promotions & Marketing
  • Concert & Event Promotions
  • Website Design
  • World-Class Production Services (audio & video)
  • Branding & Logo Development
  • Social Media & Fan Development

We have over 30 years’ experience in church and ministry business administration, Christian education, worship team training & development, and in the management and administration of tours (domestic & international), events of all kinds, non-profit consultation services, and artist development, administration and management.

We are now scheduling Spring/Summer (or Fall/Winter if you’re in the southern hemisphere) 2018 Music Management & Ministry Consultations. The consultation is the first step in establishing a management relationship with our clients and is especially designed for ministries and faith-based performing artists: singers, bands, musicians, dancers, authors, speakers, and actors.

Our clients are excited about 2018 – are you?

For the solo artist or band, record labels aren’t developing artists anymore. Most will only consider picking up an artist who is already fully-developed. So, somewhere along the line the artist must invest in his/her development if they want to take their music to a national level. TMA provides that development service as well as ongoing management. And it all starts with the consultation.

  • Gary spent a good deal of our consultancy time together asking important questions and listening. I was so pleased to find that Gary genuinely wanted to ‘get’ me first and then customize his services to exactly my needs. He did not have a one-size-fits-all approach at all! He took the time and had the skills and insight to ‘understand me and what I believe I’m called to do before supplying excellent advise for the path ahead. Not only have I found solid professional insight in Gary, I have found a potential ministry partner.

  • Aligning yourself with the right management team can provide an artist with a partner who can help the artist achieve their goals. In the best of situations it can be one of the most important relationships of an artist's career.

Development or Management?

TMA provides industry-standard artist development, production, marketing, and management. Our approach is a three-phase system that incorporates the most essential elements you need to become successful in the music industry and in ministry. Whether or not you need an actual "manager" is not the question.

TMA customizes its work with artists, bands, and other faith-based performing artists based on their individual needs. That can include:

  • Development Only – comprehensive development “from zero to hero” following the recommendations of the Client Evaluation Report from the Music or Ministry Development/Management Consultation;
  • Development & Management – complete development and management following the recommendations of the Client Evaluation Report from the Music or Ministry Development/Management  Consultation.
  • Management Only – you have everything developed but you need professional representation to the industry.
  • Music Management Consultation Only – you need an industry-standard assessment of your career and a game-plan going forward (click here for more information).
  • Production Only – world-class production utilizing A-Level session-players in Nashville.
  • Crowd-Funding – TMA’s PDP Support program creates a simple fund-raising campaign so your supporters can partner with you.

Unlike other artist agencies, we do NOT limit access to our services. We do not bill by the hour, or give you a certain number of hours per month for this or that. Plus, everything we do to serve our clients is customized to suit their needs. No “one-size fits all” mentality here at TMA!

For more information on these services, or to be contacted by a representative of The Management Agency, please complete the contact form located here or click the CONTACT link above.


With PDP Support, Crowd-Funding is simple and direct: your supporters partnering with you with to spread your message. Click on the "Tools" link above for more info.


The branding of your vision is the first step in designing your marketing plan. That includes everything from your photo shoot to your digital and printed materials.


Record labels don't develop artists. TMA does. The development process is where we address all of the most important foundation elements of your career to make sure they are in line with your vision and mission.


Marketing includes CD promotions, launch, radio promotions, distribution, and touring. This is where the heavy lifting really starts!
