Actor and producer Kirk Cameron is gearing up for his next theatrical quest: a two-night event aimed at helping parents navigate the oft-times complex world of social media and technology.
Cameron’s new project “Kirk Cameron: CONNECT” will air in nearly 750 theaters nationwide on Feb. 27 and March 1 at 7 p.m. local time, with the entertainer working hard to “enlighten and encourage parents in today’s digitally driven environment” by speaking to experts with insight into key, related issues.
“How can this generation of parents blaze a new trail to equip their kids to thrive in an ever-changing digital environment while steering clear of the dangers that lurk nearby?” a press release for the film rhetorically asks. “With six teenagers, Cameron fully understands this dilemma. So, he went to the experts, and what he learned will enlighten, challenge and equip parents.”
“Kirk Cameron: CONNECT” will feature Pastor Ken Graves of Calvary Chapel in Bangor, Maine, Mark Gregston, founder of Heartlight, and neurosurgeon Dr. Ian Armstrong, among others.
Those assembled will explore the positives, negatives — and dangers — that can come from social media and technology. Cameron said in a statement that he’s hoping to see parents take away some beneficial lessons from the film.
“God-fearing parents can find confidence and guidance when it comes to the challenges of parenting in our technology-driven world, knowing that God has fully equipped us for the sacred calling as a parent,” he said.
Cameron continued, “We have resources to prepare our children as they learn their purpose and identity, and responsibly use technology to understand family, friends, God and the world around them.”
