MEMPHIS, Tenn. — In today’s evolving world, some people are often heard saying that marriage is too difficult, or that the sanctity of marriage has been destroyed. Don’t tell that to television and movie star Kirk Cameron, who brings the “Love Worth Fighting For: Marriage Event” to Raleigh Assembly of God in Memphis on Saturday, April 5, at 6 p.m.
For the past four years, Cameron and musical guest Warren Barfield have been spreading their passion and faith in the power of marriage at churches and complexes throughout the country by sharing their personal experiences and using the tools of music and humor to help eager couples who are either married or preparing to be.
“Marriage is the foundation upon which you build a family, and if families fall apart, then our churches, our communities and ultimately our whole nation crumbles,” Cameron says. “We’re excited to share this event with the people of Memphis and know that it will bring both hope and healing.”
The “Love Worth Fighting For” tour, sponsored by Feed Your Faith, is in its fifth year and has touched more than 200,000 attendees since its inception. The 2014 tour will be making more than 30 stops across the country, including events in Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, California, Ohio, Missouri, Arkansas, Indiana, Florida, and Alabama, among others.
According to conference organizers, tickets are currently still available for the Memphis event, but it could quickly sell out. Tickets range from $20 to $35 and are available as reserved seats or general admission for singles, couples and groups of 10 or more.
Cameron is best known for his memorable role of “Mike Seaver,” a cultural icon of the ’80s. More recently he had the top-grossing inspirational film of 2008, “Fireproof,” and also has a newer documentary, “Monumental.” His company, CAMfam Studios, has released his latest film, “Unstoppable.” His speaking tour, “Love Worth Fighting For,” is a marriage event held in churches and has been hosted in more than 150 cities. Kirk and his wife, Chelsea, were onscreen sweethearts during Growing Pains years and are the founders of Camp Firefly, where terminally and seriously ill children and their families are provided an all-expense paid retreat. He and his wife live in California with their six children.
