Music Group Casting Crowns Set to Perform at GIANT Center, 3/20
Following a successful tour with The Story Tour, Casting Crowns will return to Giant Center on Thursday, March 20 at 7:00 p.m. Casting Crowns has consistently delivered songs that spur listeners to evaluate their relationship with God and with each other. "The basic idea is let God define himself through you and if you'll do that, you're going to thrive," says frontman Mark Hall.
"The idea of [group album] 'Thrive' came out of our student ministry. I've been a youth pastor for almost 22 years and it's still what I want to be when I grow up," Hall says with a grin. "The songs always really start out with what we're teaching, and for years I've been using Psalm 1 in showing them what a believer looks like. It says: 'Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season.'"
It's been more than 10 years since the members of Casting Crowns heard their first single on the radio in July 2003. Since then so much has happened in the lives of each member and along the way God has taught them so much. "He's opened our eyes to our suspicion that He was way bigger than we thought He was," Hall says with a smile. "He didn't need Casting Crowns to come along to help His word get out. God is winning. He's changing the world. It may look at times like things are getting darker and darker, but they are not. Everywhere you go, you can see light and light wins. It always wins."
