‘Home By Sunday’ Casting Crowns Documentary Goes Beyond The Songs

“Home By Sunday,” a new, upcoming documentary film, goes beyond the music and gives an up-close and personal look at one of the biggest bands in the Christian music scene, Casting Crowns.

Movies, TV shows and programs like The Voice, American Idol and America’s Got Talent make the entertainment industry appear to be brimming with nothing but fun and happiness. Viewers get only a look at the glitz and the glamor. But a new documentary gives a look at the human beings behind the music and some of their daily struggles.

In the official trailer for “Home for Sunday,” viewers get a look at the documentary about the people in the band Casting Crowns. Despite the band’s massive success, lead singer Mark Hall understands that fame is not all it’s made out to be.

“We’d always come home at the end of it [a tour], and we’d walk into our church, and the middle school kid would say, ‘Oh, hey.’ The fame and the people being excited about you is really a bit of an illusion,” he said. 

The documentary also examines the group’s beginnings, including Mark’s desire to remain a youth pastor. Band members also discuss some of the challenges of touring.

Touring, traveling across the country, or even the world playing music may sound like heaven to some, but it comes with challenges. 

“When we first started traveling and singing, it was really hard,” Mark said.

Another band member mentioned how touring impacts raising a family and his children.

“Home-schooling on the road is a bear,” one man states. 

However, despite the problems they might face while touring, Mark stated how he has witnessed the Lord use the band’s music to reach people.

“When I look out at people who are singing our songs back to us, God is connecting with that person through a song that He let me write,” he said. 

The short clip ends with a beautiful comment from Mark about the power of music and how it can reach those lost and hurting for the Lord.

“As beautiful as art can be, if it’s not pointing to the truth, we’re steering people in the wrong direction,” Mark said. “That’s why music is powerful to me because it can point us to the Father.”

Philippians 4:8 “Finally brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are honest, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
