KIRK CAMERON is known by millions as “Mike Seaver” from the 1980’s hit sit-com, Growing Pains. Since then, he’s invested his time and energy into faith and family-focused films, television shows, and live events. These projects include Fireproof -the marriage-centered film that became the #1 inspirational movie of the year. Kirk has also produced the documentaries,  Monumental: In Search of America’s National Treasure, Connect: Real Help for Helping Raise Kids in a Social Media World, The Way of the Master television series, and hundreds of live events focused on marriage, family and parenting. Kirk’s new talkshow, TAKEAWAYS, airs weekly on Monday nights on TBN. Recently, he’s been featured in the national media for his American Campfire Revival: 100 Day Plan. ACR urges the family of faith to return to the principles that will bring blessing and protection to America. Kirk’s newest feature film with the Kendrick Brothers, called Lifemark, is set to hit theaters in September, 2022, and is about the value of life in the womb and the beauty of adoption. His newest documentary, The Homeschool Awakening, will hit theaters in June 2022. He and his wife, Chelsea, met on the set of Growing Pains and have been married for 31 years. They have six children and host an all-expenses-paid summer camp for terminally ill children and their families called Camp Firefly.
