Kirk Cameron and his sister Candace Cameron Bure are on a mission to inspire the masses with true hope. The brother and sister duo have teamed up to organize and co-host “Hope Rising,” a benefit concert aimed at helping raise funds to address the COVID19 crisis.
Kirk Cameron appeared on “The Pure Flix Podcast” on Friday to explain that the inspirational event — which will air on Facebook at 8 p.m. ET on April 19 — will feature some of the biggest names in Christian ministry and music.
Listen to Cameron describe this powerful event:
The goal? Cameron said they’re hoping to help people, especially “those on the frontlines.” And in the midst of chaos and consternation, he’s hoping people will remember to “stand on the promises of God and his faithfulness.”
The event will include For King & Country, Casting Crowns, Mercy Me, T.D. Jakes, Priscilla Shirer, Tenth Avenue North and many others.
“Everybody did it for free,” he said of the famous speakers and artists who will be included. “[We] are simply just asking people to donate to Samaritan’s Purse.”
