Do you want to be an overcomer in this life?


White Stone Receivers (WSR) is a new musical project led by Scott McKeown (crave), borne out UK lockdown in 2020.

WSR is rooted in the hope-filled message of a portion of scripture in the New Testament of the bible - Revelation 2:17. Here we read that believers in the work, life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, who are faithful to the end are called overcomers....overcomers as they choose the life less lived, the path less walked, the road less run.

Each follower of Jesus will each be given a white (symbolic of purity) stone engraved with their new God-given name. The scripture highlights God’s personal, relational nature – He is not distant, He has come to us and will come again for us. It also shows His love for and care of individual believers.


WSR Purpose

Worshipping God and encouraging His family in the race to Christ, the greatest treasure, are at the heart of WSR songs.
