At the beginning and end of the day, Crosskid Nation is about engaging kids' hearts, minds and bodies with the life-transforming gospel of Jesus.
I'm Andy Wilson and I love to sing, love to dance, and love Jesus. I also love teaching and engaging kids using high-energy, dance-oriented music. As an outflow of the kid in me who refuses to grow up and listen to "grown up" music, Crosskid Nation (www.crosskidnation.com) is the product of years of kids' music ministry seeing how kids engage and learn quickly through music and dance.
As a worship leader for kids and adults for over 20 years, I have lived my life with the proverbial "song in my heart". While the song has changed through various seasons of life, it was most impacted 15 years ago when I began leading worship for an outreach-oriented VBS program in Nashville, TN. I had always written and produced music, but God used this opportunity to spark a specific passion for creating relevant, super-catchy, outreach oriented music to encourage kids to hide God's word in their hearts and challenge and encourage their hearts, minds, souls, and bodies.
That's my AWESOME, INCREDIBLE family in the pictures. While I don't make them wear the Crosskid Nation t-shirts, they do get better desserts every day they wear 'em! I am blessed beyond belief to have three amazing kids and a wonderful, loving, and supportive wife. She's actually the BeatMaster - she loves to dance and it I play her a song and her feet, arms or shoulders don't instinctively move, I know it's time to go back to the drawing board :)!
So really that's all there is to it. Doesn't matter if you sing well. Doesn't matter if you dance well. Doesn't matter how old you are. Just sing and dance to the glory of God - that's what Crosskid Nation is all about!
I hope you'll find Crosskid Nation an awesome and encouraging resource for your church and family!
