fieldHey there. 

I’m Scott Naylor, and I serve with a global missions organization called Cru as a professional musician, clinician, music director, and raconteur. For the last 10 years I’ve given leadership and vision to various aspects of Cru’s dedicated performing artists’ ministry (formerly known as ‘Keynote’), and have taken teams of missional performing artists on tour all over the world, several times over.

Artists by design and missionaries by calling, we use our performances and artistry to connect with our audiences, and bring a message of radical hope and redemption through Christ into the experience. We have shared the gospel with hundreds of thousands of people in concert outreaches. We’ve also led worship for scores of conferences and events throughout the U.S. and an ever-expanding list of countries in Asia, Europe and the Middle East. Our team also provides training in worship leading and music evangelism to the next generation of missional artists.

As cool as all of that is, it’s not really about me, or even about music. It’s about giving people a chance to truly encounter Jesus; it’s about doing all we can to see Christ exalted on every stage

This site is where I tell stories and keep people updated about that stuff.  And I’m glad you’re here, because I need your help to keep doing it!  

My work with Cru is 100% donor-supported. Like many missionaries or churches or other non-profits, my work is only possible through the generosity of people who share the vision and make it part of their financial giving.  For more about how to partner with me in that way, check out the Donate page.

Thanks for dropping in!
