Knoxville, TN – Jan. 6, 2010 – Kirk Cameron, star of the runaway hit movie “Fireproof,” will be the featured speaker for Feed Your Faith’s “Love Worth Fighting For” tour, which kicks off in Feb. 2011. Well-know signer/songwriter Warren Barfield (“Love Is Not A Fight” from the movie “Fireproof”) will also be a featured guest on the tour.
The “Love Worth Fighting For” conference focuses on all areas of relationships including our relationship with God. The conference encourages people in all stages of life to attend as the event applies to teenagers, single adults, newly married couples and longtime spouses. The tour begins on Feb. 4, in Simpsonville, S.C. and is scheduled to conclude in Nov., in Orlando, Fla. The tour will be making 30 stops across the country including cities in Tex., Ohio, N.J. and Md. Tickets range from $20 to $35 each and are available as reserved seats or general admission for singles, couples and groups of 10 or more.
As the featured speaker for the “Love Worth Fighting For” conference, Cameron has proven to draw crowds as over 35,000 people attended this event in 2010 to hear him speak and to learn about God’s plan for healthy, happy marriages. Tickets sold out almost six months in advance as a result of the conference’s high attendance.
Additionally, the “Love Worth Fighting For” tour is partnering with the well known non-profit, Food for the Hungry. Last year’s conferences led to over 700 child sponsorships. Since 1971, Food for the Hungry has been a relief and development organization for the poor in more than 26 countries.
Following the success of his 1980s hit television show, “Growing Pains,” Cameron married actress Chelsea Noble and is now the father of six children. He’s an outspoken Christian and has starred in the Left Behind movies, written books, and continues to work in film and television. Cameron’s next movie, “Monumental: In Search of America’s National Treasure,” is currently in production.
Feed Your Faith started five years ago built on a simple concept; bring in Christian speakers, authors, singers and music groups to help Christians grow in their faith and, at the same time, raise money for those who are less fortunate. All of the organizations proceeds go directly to local charities. To date, Feed Your Faith has worked with nationally known writers and music groups including Lee Strobel (former legal editor of the Chicago Tribune and author of The Case for Christ), author Mark Mittelberg, DecembeRadio, Decyfer Down and Sanctus Real, needtobreathe and Sarah Reeves.

Things like faith, love, marriage, children, truth and with his songs, he challenges us all to do the same.
