Our ensemble of professional-caliber singers, originating from San Antonio and the surrounding areas, is really what sets our choir apart from the several great musical groups the city has to offer. Many of our singers are professional performers or music educators right here in San Antonio! Under the direction of Artistic Director, Rick Bjella, these singers apply their musicianship and diverse experiences to elevate the choir to new heights of musical excellence.
CAM has decided to keep its doors open to serve those less fortunate in the San Antonio community, and are prioritizing the following services: groceries for those in homes, daily sack lunches for our homeless friends, financial assistance for prescriptions.
We’re also still very much in need of certain items. The biggest need is funding to buy groceries, hygiene items, baby items, etc. for our clients.

Musicians and singers from both CUB members and our partner churches bring contemporary Christian music on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday evenings. If you have been blessed with a gift to sing or play an instrument, consider offering it back to God through us.
Churches and community groups purchase, prepare, and serve a nutritious meal three days a week. Smaller groups and individuals partner with them to help serve these meals after evening service.
Our Hospitality Ministry consists of many “helping” positions in which members from our partner churches and the homeless community can serve.
Ushers help to guide attendees through our church services and into our feeding/clothing ministries after dinner. They assist the staff by providing information about our program and oversight for the facilities, parking, and peaceful evening operations.
Greeters help to minister the love of God by welcoming attendees at the front door, offering them water to hydrate, and directing them to the bag checking area and sanctuary. Many days, the smile or word of kindness given by our Greeters may be the first act of love they’ve seen.
After a balanced meal, individuals can receive a change of clothes, hygiene products, or special items we may have in stock (like blankets, hats, and gloves in winter months). This ministry depends on community donations year-round to operate.
Developing and providing Christ-centered education is one of our current goals. If you are interested in helping with Christian education, contact us.
