Workshops from Jon Dunagan ( may vary by event location )
Training Our Boys to be Men
How can we train our boys to be strong and godly men — not wasting their lives on video games, but working hard, taking risks, enjoying adventure, and daring to following God wherever He leads? In this session, you'll be challenged with Biblical truth and hard-hitting honesty (from real-life experiences: growing up with five brothers on a dairy farm and raising five sons -- into various spheres including military service, international business, engineering, and rugged missions). Please note: If you're easily offended, don't attend. This session will be spoken with love, yet direct and straight-forward.
Parenting and Homeschooling by Faith, Not Fear
Be encouraged to conquer fear through the truth of God’s Word! Do you fear your inadequacies (or wonder if your homeschooling will mess up your kids for life)? Do you fear teenage rebellion, hormones, high school, or the future? Do you worry about pleasing others, not having enough money, or not fulfilling God’s purpose? Fear can paralyze; it grips your heart, torments your mind, and hinders you from parenting in God’s joy and purpose. Philippians 4:6 says, “Be anxious for nothing.” Nothing means NO-thing. Not even ONE-thing. Come join us, and be encouraged by God’s great faithfulness and love for you, concluding with a time of prayer.
In this encouraging and life-impacting session Dunagan’s share — from a biblical and global-traveling perspective, how “God’s mission is for your family to expand His family.” World Missions and God’s Great Commission is not an “optional” elective to supplement our studies; it’s a God-given foundation for life. In this life-impacting session, you’ll be encouraged from a biblical foundation and from the Dunagan’s global adventures (as a family to over 100 nations on all 7 continents) — with practical ideas for every family to incorporate God’s love for the lost and the nations into your educational methods and family life.
Aiming Our Arrows into Adulthood
As homeschooling parents, how can we prepare our children, to be arrows for God’s purposes? How can we prepare our hearts (through prayer and effective communication) to release our children to God? The Dunagan’s homeschooled for 27 years, teaching all seven of their children, all K-12 — all now launched into their adult life, in International Business, Engineering, Global Missions, Christian ministry, Education, and the Arts — with graduations, college success, joyful weddings, and many grandchildren! In this session, you’ll be encouraged, from a solid biblical foundation, for life beyond homeschooling – with next-generation purpose. Let’s aim and release our arrows, for the glory of God.
