Book Description

In a mission-minded family, there's a God-infused energy. There's a focus on God's worldwide purpose and there's a passion for the lost. There's a spiritual depth and hunger that reaches beyond the maintenance mode of cultural Christianity. A mission-minded family emphasizes leadership, calling and destiny. There's a prevailing attitude of self-sacrifice and an emphasis on total submission to God's will. There's an unmistakable and contagious joy.

Dunagan, who wrote The Mission-Minded Child, brings the same perspective to what it means to be a mission-minded family. This book includes suggested activities for families to participate in together as well as resources to help families develop the desire to be more missions-focused. She discusses the need for families to balance and prioritize their everyday lives and delves into what a family's finances would look like if they were focused on missions.

This practical book is the perfect companion to The Mission-Minded Child. Families who read and practice principles from this book will receive a rekindled closeness as they participate in ministry together.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great resource for any Christian with a missions heart November 22, 2008
I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. This is the first book that I have seen that incorporates both an emphasis on missions and on family. I have noticed that many have a heart for one or the other, but unfortunately they become compartmentalized and separated throughout our lives. The author does a great job conveying the important characteristics of a mission minded family, but more importantly she gives hundreds of practical steps which one can initiate immediately. I myself will implement many of the ideas that she has suggested both now and in the future. I would suggest that anyone with a desire to impact the world with the gospel get this book ASAP.

"The Mission Minded Family" by Ann Dunagan is the coolest book! It has everything: hymns, stories of missions, mini biographies of missionaries, skits, a calendar of international holidays and suggestions for how to pray on those days, tools for teaching mission-mindedness, and even practical tips for missionary travel. This is an educational and informative book whether you're planning to be a foreign missionary, a local missionary, or just learn about the field.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sacrificed on the Altar of missions October 6, 2011
Point: Your family can and should be involved in missions. God does not ask you to sacrifice your family on the altar of missions, but have you sacrificed God's commands on the altar of your family?

Path: Through stories, examples, tips and testimony the author pieces together a feasible strategy for family missions.

Sources: Compiling resources from missionary biographies, missions agency, and current missions project, the author gives many resources to the reader.

Agreement: It is not "missions or family" it should be "mission through family." Too often we think that our lives are too busy caring for our children to think of missions. Rather, we should look how we can involve our whole family in missions.

Disagreement: The author is a proponent of YWAM and other organizations which confuse missions. Also, the strategies are often focused more on humanitarian aid than Gospel presentation.

Personal App: How can I involve my family in missions rather than exchanging my family for missions?

There are some helpful ideas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful mix of practical ideas and inspiration! October 16, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Mission Minded Family is a delightful read from cover to cover-- a perfect mix of "show and tell." Ann Dunagan offers many practical ideas for getting one's family involved in missions, for developing children's hearts with a sold out purpose, and she sprinkles in plenty of personal family examples as well as biographies of many refreshingly unknown yet inspiring men and women of faith. Ann and her husband Jon would be among these examples. They have made many great sacrifices of faith during their years of ministry and because of it, God has given them many amazing opportunities and miraculous provisions.

One message you find interwoven throughout, and one that I appreciate in particular, is that Ann drives home the point that parents can't see ministry as separate from their kids. Ann says, "God is not calling us to win the world and, in the process, lose our families. ...In our view, raising and training our seven children is not a distraction to our mission calling; it is our primary ministry!"

Another wonderful part of her message that lends credibility to all her suggestions for getting one's family involved in missions is she and her husband's extreme commitment to and experience on the mission field for many years. The Dunagan's are seasoned professionals who are sharing great insights and suggestions throughout, such as how to get started in family missions (at home or abroad), what to expect, and how to prepare for mission trips. Their kids bear the wonderful fruit of being a part of this ministry from the outset--all SEVEN of them are well experienced on the mission field, very mission-minded, and sold out for the Gospel.

I definitely recommend this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Give Your Family a Dangerous Destiny! October 30, 2008
I loved this book! In a time in our country where the tendency is to keep our money and time and children very safe, this book encourages - even pushes - us to get out in the world and make a real difference with the resources we've been given. Ann Dunagan is no arm-chair missionary...the pages of the book are filled with actual experiences that she and her husband and kids have done for many years. It totally inspired me to take some big risks and help my kids learn to love the world beyond our doorstep.
