Shawn Naylor Bio

Over the past 10 years I continue to be a passionate, relational voice to youth and young adults. My heart is to help young people realize that there is hope and the future is full of light and life (despite life’s imperfections). Young people are not only unique, but they are divinely called by God to achieve great things for His glory. I find purpose in bridging the gap of understanding between the young and old(er). God has commissioned me to reveal Gospel truths that challenge the thinking and actions of youths, young adults and adults alike. My calling was revealed to me at the tender age of eight years old. Simply put, I am mandated to be a mouthpiece for God, to both the church and unchurched. This all has been made available to me by the redemptive power found in Jesus Christ, and his completed work on the cross.
