Love Worth Fighting For, a national marriage event tour, featuring television and film actor Kirk Cameron, will make a stop in Bartlesville on Sept. 27. The three-hour event is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. at Bartlesville First Baptist Church.
American culture has become rich in divorce, with nearly 42 million adults having been married more than once. That number is up from 22 million, just 35 years ago in 1980.
Through comedic stories, life-experiences, music and prayer, Cameron, and musical guest Warren Barfield will travel around the country teaching singles, engaged, newly married and veteran couples about ways to encourage and strengthen a marriage.
The heart of the event emanates from the storyline of Fireproof, a hugely popular movie that features Cameron playing the role of a firefighter who seeks to save his crumbling marriage. “We’ve taken Fireproof and transformed it into a live event,” Cameron says. “Along with wonderful music and our personal stories and experiences, we’ll provide insight and teaching from the Bible on the subject of the most important relationship on the planet.”
Throughout the past seven years, the Love Worth Fighting For tour has reached hundreds of thousands of people across the country, many exclaiming the lasting positive effects the tour had on their marriage.
“Marriage is one of the few things we can’t afford to lose. We can lose our jobs, our savings, our friends, but we can bounce back from that. I don’t want to come to the end of life and find that I’ve lost the love of my wife and the respect of my kids. Those are the important things…the things worth fighting for,” said Cameron.
Tickets range from $20 to $50 each and are available as reserved seats or general admission for singles, couples and groups of 10 or more. For more information,, visit www.loveworthfightingfor.com.
