The  “Love Worth Fighting For” event which features speaker Kirk Cameron of “Growing Pains,” “Fireproof” and “Left Behind” fame alongside singer/songwriter Warren Barfield has proven to be a huge success, selling out in advance the majority of their stops across the country in early 2011.

“We have received emails and letters from couples saying this was the last ditch effort that they were going to make. Before they signed the papers, they were going to give it one last shot,” says Cameron. “They walk out of these events holding hands. It is awesome to see what has happened.”

“The ‘Love Worth Fighting For’ event is a combination of humor, music, honesty and biblical insight focused on encouraging men and women to find the victories on the other side of the battles they face in their relationships,” explains Barfield. “Husbands and wives leave empowered to fight for each other rather than against.  After every event I am amazed at the stories that pour in.  The event is literally changing family trees.  I am grateful to be fighting for love alongside of Feed Your Faith and Kirk Cameron.  We all believe it is worth it.”

Amidst the capacity-filled shows, the tour is announcing the addition of more dates nationwide. “Love Worth Fighting For” events are now planned through September of this year for markets such as Abilene, TX, Ocean Grove, N.J., Winter Park, FL and more.

Pastors are seeing their congregations resonate the “Love Worth Fighting For” event. “The marriage conference today was wonderful,” adds David Hardy, Associate Pastor at Cedar Creek Church in South Carolina. “Warren was funny and a great singer . . . he helped us all to relax, and Kirk’s teaching was right on . . . great stuff to help us with our marriages.”
The “Love Worth Fighting For” conference focuses on all areas of relationships including one’s relationship with God. The conference encourages people in all stages of life to attend as the event applies to teenagers, single adults, newly married couples and longtime spouses. Tickets range from $20 to $35 each and are available as reserved seats or general admission for singles, couples and groups of 10 or more. For more information on dates and tickets, visit

About Warren Barfield:
North Carolina-born singer/songwriter Warren Barfield is on a mission to make the truly important things important again in his life. Things like faith, love, marriage, children, truth and with his songs, he challenges us all to do the same. Martin Luther King Jr. said, “If a man hasn’t discovered something that he will die for, he isn’t fit to live.” Warren has found those things in his faith, his wife, and his belief in love. “These are the things I would die for; things I will wake up every morning and spend my day fighting for.”

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
