“When working on this album, I realized all the songs I was writing dealt with healing in some way, something we all need,” shares Mark Hall of Casting Crowns. “This deluxe album is the full picture about healing, about how God meets us where we are and what His healing looks like. Healer is a scripture-filled push forward, challenging us to seek true healing from Jesus, the only Healer we need.”
Celebrating the album’s release, the band is releasing a new music video for one of the new tracks, “No Hurt.” This anthemic song is a perfect setting for the music video that highlights the Urban Bicycle Food Ministry in the Nashville area.
