Steven will also bring back by popular demand his request time where attendees can ask that their song be added to the set just log on to his website now to leave your request.Steven explains the heart behind this tour…

We’ve prayed for months that each evening of this tour be an opportunity to ponder important things, and to celebrate the hope we have in Jesus, the great hope I’m so thankful continues to carry us all.

As a part of this very special season, Mary Beth Chapman will join her husband for the first time ever on the tour. Mary explains why now is the time for her entire family to hit the road…

There are three things I told God I would never ever do: homeschool, adopt, and speak in public. Well, we’ve already homeschooled, you know we’ve adopted, and now this fall I’ll be on stage speaking at Steven’s concerts, now I’m telling God I will not go to Hawaii for three months.

Mary Beth will share her journey as reflected in her inaugural book, “Choosing To See”, available this September and co-written with Ellen Vaughn. Discussing her courtship and marriage to Steven, struggles for emotional balance, and living with grief, she will open up about how she has wrestled with God even as she has allowed him to write her story–both during times of happiness and those of tragedy. Mary Beth’s transparent style will surprise audiences with the depth of her faith struggle and her hilarious sense of humor. Mary Beth and Steven will also proudly introduce audiences to the band Caleb, a new band featuring their sons Caleb and Will Franklin.

Show Hope, the title sponsor of the tour, is a ministry founded by Steven and Mary Beth that enables individuals and communities to change the world for orphans by not only addressing a child’s need for food, shelter, care, and spiritual nourishment, but by also addressing the root issue for an orphan: the lack of a family.
