Kirk is best known as the lovable teenager, Mike Seaver, from the award-winning series Growing Pains (1985-1992).
Most recently, Kirk Cameron starred in Fireproof, a film written and produced by the makers of Facing the Giants. Released in the fall of 2008, Fireproof — which follows the story of a firefighter on the brink of divorce who gets his heart right with God and then tries to win back his wife — has sustained a lengthy run in theatres, grossing more than $32 million in ticket sales nationwide.
Kirk has played numerous other roles in TV and film, including the lead role of “Buck” Williams in the Left Behind film series and has worked closely with evangelist Ray Comfort, serving as producer and co-host of his award-winning television program, The Way of the Master.
Kirk is the author of Still Growing, an autobiographical account in which he shares about his early rise to stardom and how his life-changing encounter with Christ compelled him to make choices and to stand on his convictions in the midst of the challenges he faced as a Christian actor. In his own words, Kirk shares how he’s still growing through the triumphs and temptations of his Hollywood career.
While on the set of Growing Pains, Kirk met and married his co-star, Chelsea Noble, and together they continued their on-screen romance in the Warner Brothers sitcom Kirk (1995-1997). In 1989, Kirk and Chelsea founded Camp Firefly, a camp for seriously ill children and their families. They now have six beautiful children and live in Southern California.
Kirk’s growing passion over the last several years has been to reach out to families and to encourage fathers in particular to take the lead in guiding their homes for the glory of God.
