Ken Hindman, Children's Pastor at Bellevue Baptist Church, Memphis TN
We love worshipping with Crosskid Nation! It's all the rage in our ministry. Strong and Courageous is the most requested song in the entire ministry here at Bellevue. Andy is one of the most talented and gifted musicians that I have ever worked with. His musical creativity appeals to children, teens, and parents. It's the kind of music that makes you want to get up and move! The songs Andy writes and produces are uplifting and encourage a unique family connection. The families at Bellevue love the upbeat tunes combined with positive lyrics. You will want to discover this music and share it with your kids.

AMAZING! That is just one of many words to describe Andy Wilson. He will be back for year two as Worship Leader for our VBS; June cannot get here fast enough! His powerful music left an impression on our entire community from the very youngest to our teens and adult leaders. Together, our love for Jesus was on fire through his music and words. Eight months later, our children are still rockin’ to “Strong and Courageous” in Children’s Church as a favorite request!
In addition to leading our daily Praise and Worship, he spent 30 minutes each day with our oldest campers, 4th & 5th graders, for real faith and Bible conversations that he created just for them. What an impact he had on these children and their faith journey! The connections were so strong, they have lasted throughout the year. I continue to hear stories from the campers and their parents. Andy’s love of Jesus shines through in his music and his spirit. He is relational, engaging, crazy talented and FUN!

For over 15 years, Andy has set the tone for Summer JAM, a backyard VBS in Northwest Nashville serving students from a variety of backgrounds. Enthusiastically and worshipfully, Andy has led music that connects across cultures, reinforces Christian doctrine, and inspires excitement and movement. Without question, I have never been around a leader who embodies Christ’s message while engaging a young audience more effectively than Andy Wilson.
Brandon Blackburn, Worship Minister at Cornerstone Christian Church, Pikeville KY
CrossKid Nation brought incredible energy teamed with enjoyable, catchy music all centered around the spirit of worship we were aiming for at our children’s conference. CrossKid Nation’s passion for his ministry and each child was clear and elevated our conference to another level.
Mallory Hammond, CPC Kids/Program Director, Christ Presbyterian Church, Nashville TN
Our experience was wonderful! We had a large range of ages and Andy did a fabulous job keeping them engaged! The environment was worshipful, high energy, and creative! One of our volunteers was watching from above in our sound booth and he commented "The kids could NOT be having a better time!”
Marian Parker, Children's Minister Fourth Avenue Church, Nashville TN
We loved having Andy with Crosskid Nation lead worship for our young students! He was able to lead and engage a group of kids with a wide age range (preschool through elementary) with enthusiasm and energy. They fed off of his obvious enjoyment & it was contagious. His choreography was easy for them to follow, and the truth in his songs was reinforced with lots of audience participation.
Judy Dorris, Children's Director, West End Community Church, Nashville TN
Andy is energetic, engaging, and has a gentle spirit and heart for God. He desires to connect kids’ hearts to God’s Word through music. Kids from both churched and unchurched backgrounds easily relate to the music and it sticks. It’s easy to follow, and they want to listen over and over again.
