The 2019 HEAV Convention is shaping up to be one of the best ever–and how can it miss with convention keynote Kirk Cameron!
Kirk Cameron has been a part of the national landscape since starring as Mike Seaver in the ABC hit sit-com, Growing Pains. That role turned him into a cultural icon in the 80s, with his mullet hairstyle, cool sunglasses, and wisecracking comebacks. (And what 80s kid doesn’t remember that beloved theme song, “Show Me that Smile Again!”)
Since then, he’s appeared in numerous television and movie productions, including the Left Behind series, Monumental, and Fireproof, the marriage-centered film that became the #1 grossing inspirational movie of 2008. His newest film, Connect, offers “real help for parenting kids in a social media world.

Friday Keynote B
The Adventures of a Hollywood Homeschool Dad
Homeschooling is tough decision for some, the most impactful family decision ever made for many—and certainly an adventure for all of us! Imagine the adventure of being a Hollywood actor who decides to embrace the world of homeschooling! Find out at the 2019 Virginia Homeschool Convention, as keynote Kirk Cameron shares the incredible lessons he and his wife learned raising their six kids, including the fun—and funny–stories, the homeschool challenges, and wonderful victories.
Kirk has been featured on Nightline, Fox News, and CNN, and he currently tours the country speaking live to 30 churches a year as part of the marriage and parenting conference, Living Room Reset. In the fall of 2016 and 2017, he hosted live Fathom theater events called Revive Us — a “national family meeting” urging the family of faith to return to the biblical principles that will bring blessing and protection to our country. The live events took place in more than 750 theaters across the United States and were attended by more than 200,000 people. Kirk and his wife, Chelsea, met on the set of Growing Pains and have been married for over 26 years. Together they have six teenage children and host an all-expenses-paid summer camp for terminally ill children and their families called Camp Firefly.
