The all-star cast continues to grow on the Life & Faith Tour as USA Today and New York Times Best-Selling Author Karen Kingsbury alongside former Survivor contestant and now motivational speaker Austin Carty and popular pop-rock band Hawk Nelson join the spectacular lineup for the tri-city summer extravaganza that will visit Richmond, VA (6/19/2010), Rockingham, NC (7/10/2010) and Atlanta (7/24/2010).
In addition to Kingsbury, 20 additional famed fiction and non-fiction authors Andrew Farley, Debra White Smith, Kathleen Fuller and Amy Clipston and more will be speaking at the Life & Faith Tour venues about their latest novels, meeting their fans and engaging in what the festival is all about: giving back.

“There’s nothing better than spending a full summer day being inspired by today’s top Christian artists and speakers,â€ says Kingsbury. â€œThe best thing about the Life and Faith Tour is that we’ll be hanging out together – my family and yours! Imagine what your city will experience if 100,000 of us gather in one place, for one day to praise our God! It’s the kind of event and life-changing day that will encourage you and your family, but it will also change the city you live in!”
Kingsbury will be making multiple appearances at each event, sharing her testimony on the main stage while shedding light on the One Chance Foundation, an organization that helps to provide financial support to those in need specifically helping the development of Christian Education, scholarships for students wishing to attend Christian schooling, the support of adoption ministries and grants for families seeking to adopt.
Also appearing at the Life & Faith Tour will be established author Austin Carty, well known for appearing on the competitive CBS reality show Survivor in 2006. Since then he has become a highly sought after inspirational speaker and travels the country addressing audiences both young and old, Christian and secular. Audiences find his irreverent spin on reverent topics to be both insightful and refreshing.
Having toured on some of the industryâ€™s most popular tours from the Rock and Worship Roadshow, The RELVOLVE tour, Winter Jam Spectacular and Skilletâ€™s Awake & Alive tour, the pop rock band Hawk Nelson will join the Life & Faith Tour at the Richmond and Atlanta venues. They will be performing songs off their latest release Live Life Loud.
