About Scott McNamara


Scott spoke very movingly at the 2017 Christian Festival.

Although Scott grew up in a Christian home in Northern Ireland, it did not affect his life too deeply, and as he entered his twenties he got involved in the current music scene in Ireland and England, and began taking drugs and drinking heavily. As time went on he became addicted to cocaine and alcohol, his life began to spiral downwards, and he nearly died twice through overdoses. However, he had a praying mother, and on one of these occasions he had a dramatic experience of Jesus Christ. He was about to die, and he felt he was approaching the gates of Hell,  but in his own words, “Jesus saved me!” His life was transformed, he became a new man, and began to have a passion to share his new-found faith with others. All this happened in the early 2000s.  

Since those early days, Scott went on to do theological studies in Northwood, London. While there, he met his sweetheart, Jaye, who became his wife. They then became settled in Northern Ireland, became part of the Causeway Coast Vineyard Church, and started a family. (They now have four children.) But the passion to share his faith has always been with him, and three years ago he was appointed as the church evangelist. Since then, a large number in Northern Ireland have found a new life of faith and hope through belief in Jesus Christ, including a many from desperate lifestyles including crime and violence, through Scott simply sharing his story and his faith.
