Casting Crowns: keeping the main thing the ‘main thing’

After 15 years of hit records and touring, Casting Crowns is still “keeping the main thing the main thing,” says founder Mark Hall. Sunday through Wednesday the group works in youth ministry at Eagles Landing First Baptist Church outside Atlanta, and Thursday through Saturday they go out on tour.

“I think people listen to Crowns more because of what we say, as opposed to just liking the music,” says Hall.

“People who come to our concerts come to be reminded of the things we’ve taught more than how we sing them.”
