“Revive Us” Event Coming to Area Theaters

Written by Terry DeBoer on . Posted in Local

Cameron KIrk 235Kirk Cameron is calling a "national family meeting."

The actor/producer is hosting a live presentation titled "Revive Us," a combination of prayer, song, worship and inspiration, coming to theaters across the country on Tues. Oct. 18 (see details below).

"As I visit churches all across our country, moms tell me they're concerned about their children's future and dads know the nation is on the wrong track," said Cameron in a press release.

"I searched and met with the smartest, most insightful, faithful people I know and asked, 'What can we do?' And they had answers that filled me with hope and optimism."

Among the special "Revive Us" guests are retired neurosurgeon and former Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson, pastor/author Francis Chan, Harvest Bible Chapel founder

James MacDonald, author Eric Metaxas, speaker Jennifer Rothschild, and actress Karen Abercrombie who played "Miss Clara" in the faith-based film "War Room." Musical performers include the Passion Band and Vertical Church Band.

There also will be a question and answer time.

Plans are to supplement the Oct. 18 theatre event with a second showing on Mon. Oct. 24.


Cameron (who turns 46 on Oct. 12), has long been at the forefront of various Christian projects. But many fans first saw him as a teenage actor, when he portrayed Mike Seaver in the ABC-TV family sitcom "Growing Pains" from 1985-92.

Spurred by his conversion to Christianity, Cameron eventually worked exclusively in religious endeavors. His first role in the "Left Behind" movie series came in 2001.

His recent family films include "Saving Christmas" and "Mercy Rule." He starred in the 2008 faith-based film "Fireproof" and has produced several Christian documentaries.
Three years ago Cameron came to West Michigan to speak at a marriage seminar ("Love Worth Fighting For") at Grand Rapids First church. He and his wife Chelsea are founders of Camp Firefly, for seriously ill children and their families.

"Revive Us" is his latest effort.

"The whole Family is coming together to pray, to worship, to learn how to transform this nation from the inside out and from the bottom all the way up to the top," he said.


"Revive Us" is scheduled for 8 p.m. Oct. 18 at Celebration Cinema North in Grand Rapids, Celebration Rivertown in Grandville, and Cinema Carousel 16 on Grand Haven Rd. south of Muskegon. Admission is $15 adult, $12 children 3-12. To purchase tickets visit www.celebrationcinema.com, and for more information, www.reviveus2016.com.

Also showing at the Holland 7 on Waverly Rd. in Holland. For tickets online.
