Loved your concert in Louisville last night, your group,s dedication and commitment to the Lord is so evident, the Holy Spirit was present! Thanks for sharing your talent, we will pray for safe travels during the tour schedule for all of you, as I am sure this is probably a very hectic and trying time, Praise God for you all

God bless you all. blessing for you guys..Let the power of God be shown!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey. I wanted to say thank you. You guys saved my life. Hope you share this with the rest of your group.
Saw you at Big Church Day Out in the UK on the weekend and wanted to say thanks... not only is your music inspirational and my wife and kids saw you for the first time. But you always leave a God impression on me. Totally anointed, love your testimony, will be playing you on my radio show later. GB and thanks again.
awesome. im praying that mark will read this. The church i go to has been hurting for a long time, and we are barely getting back onto our feet. our goal is to make a teen/youth oriented church, but there are very few teen in the church. It would be such a blessing if casting crowns came to visit , it could be the helping hand that brings in the teens and youth. our building is huge, but our following small. if you do read this thank you so very much for giving it the time ^_^ god bless
I was blessed to see you play in a wind-swept field, with the threat of rain, here in England on the 3rd June 2012. It was a surprise present from my husband, I didn't know until you were announced that you were performing and then tears just streamed down my face....and my husband's, as he knows what effect your music has had on my life.
I've been chronically I'll for 23 years and am exhausted and in constant pain....but I have never doubted that my healing will happen, I will be pain free, be it in this world or the next. I have your music, along with Sanctus Real, other Christian music and secular music on my mp3 player, which is on random. I have lost track of the amount of times your songs have come on when I've needed to hear them....such as 'Praise You In the Storm'. God is definitely in control!
It was because of your music, and the song 'Who am I' in particular, that I renewed my baptismal promises by full emmersion just under a month ago. I was supposedly responsible for breaking the hearts of the whole congregation when i gave my testimony. It is a story I would love to share with you, if you want to hear it.
I know from my own experience that God is using you to change lives and, having got a non-Christian friend to listen to your music, to bring people to Christ.
I just want to thank you for being obedient and following the path God is leading you down, no matter how hard that path sometimes is. You are all in my heart and my prayers.
I thank God for each and every one of you. You and God saved my life, I wrote you part of my testimony. God bless you all in Jesus name
I'm praying for you, Melodee, and Hope that God's hands will guide the doctors and that they will be able to pinpoint and fix what Hope has been struggling with. God Bless!!
I have been praying for a chance to see you all in concert and well when that chance happened your concert in poplar bluff MO is sold out on Oct 18th.Well let me ask you this?Is there any way that your amazing group could put on a concert a few days before that say on tuesday at Jackson Mo which is 70 miles NE from there at the high school to benefit the mission work of our church "crossroads fellowship"? I have grown to enjoy your music and also like your story of how you evolved as a group and it would be a dream come true if we could make this happen.Feel free to contact me by phone at any time and we can reach out to the lost in this area with the power of your music and words of the Lord our God.My Number is 573-986-8739.Thank you and God Bless!
I just wanted to say thank you Casting Crowns for your uplifting music. This past year has been a struggle for my family and I. But I know to lean on the Lord and not on my own understanding. I was going through a really tough time and then I found your song, "The Voice of Truth." The song really hit home. Thank you for all you do, and continue to make great songs!
I am the director if a rehabilitation center of approximately 70 adults with severe to persistent mental illness. We have had a very successful program for over 8 years now. Much of our success is due to our faithfulness in our Lord and our Gog given desire to help those in need. We are currently having difficulty receiving support from out local management group. (funding, political issues) In order to continue serving all of our individuals and more we are looking into going as a "charity / non profit". One area that we have is a fully renovated theater. We usually have one major performance during Christmas. This is a performance that we share with hundreds of people, exposing them to the Gospel. It is our hope that we can do more theater work to promote self worth and self esteem. We believe in helping people find a place of healing and encouragement to be successful. We have one of the largest PSR facilities in the state of North Carolina. We have come to realize that in order for us to continue helping all of these souls, we have to find a new funding source. More so, more people that see our vision and dream and want to get on board. I would absolutely LOVE to talk with you. I think we need successful names in order to get peoples attention. God has given you all a gift in music. My staff and I wish to be successful as well, at making a difference in the lives of adults suffering from mental health, substance abuse and developmental disabilities. If our members lose their program, many of them will be back on the street, back on drugs, homeless, in jail or the hospital. Please contact me so we can discuss. I can promise you will be touched. God has done great things with his people and I know he has not completed His work in them yet.
Program Director, QP
I went to one of your concerts here in Beaumont, Tx in 2009 I think it was. I have been waiting and talking to radio stations begging for them to get you back. You see I was diagnosed with cancer in 2010 and wanted to see you guys one more time. I have never felt the movement of God in a concert or out like I did that night. I'm sooooo excited you guys are coming back this month and yep I've got my ticket. lol God bless you for spreading the Word.
I'm so glad you guys are doing another tour but it's so not fair you aren't coming back to Corona, CA for Christmas. Now, what would Jesus say about that?
JK but maybe you could add us in? Maybe, please?
Number one I love and have such a passion for Jesus Christ and all that He has called us to live by example.
I about 4 or 5 years ago heard a blurb on a Christian Radio station about your perception on how valuable your vocal skills were in comparison to most and yet you chose to step forward in faith and just obey and trust God with it. I so appreciated how real and genuine your heart was/is.
I am at a unique place in my life. Love Love Jesus. Married at 19 with an ideal of romance/love in my gutt not a child =-). At 21 and 23 had Caleb and Tatianna. 20 years later of marriage it has ended due to some trust issues. I am so much wiser and sensitive to the Holy Spirit and His agenda now. I am very excited to be 100% available for the Lord.
With that being said. I have sang since 5 and on stage and all through out youth group had a scholarship to Azusa Pacific..i always feel God guiding my heart back there. I have supported financially my family for years through project management without an education degree but on what i call a Jesus/daddy scholarship...they both taught me amazing work ethic. I am now in a chamber of commerce of position that wow will set me up to lead thousands to Jesus.
Sorry, now my question. I long to sing for the Lord. I am not Carrie Underwood or Celine Dion but I can hold a few keys LOL and more importantly I want Gods direction more than anything. I just always get a glimps of that radio blurb of your perception of what you thought God would do with you. I want to impact the most possible for the most amazing companion of a life time.Thank you brother for all that you do. You inspire my Spirit.
Your sister in Christ,

I am a big fan and I love your music. Casting Crowns has helped me grow stronger in Christ and I want to thank you. I would appreciate it if you listen to a song called "Never let go" by Fire and Flames. they aren't really known. and I barley know them personally but their music has helped me grow too just like yours. Heres a link of one of their songs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XdZKlkwjxsY thank you so much for your help and please let me know what you think :)
