Dr. James Dobson Family Institute

Ministry Description
The mission of the Dr. James Dobson Family Institute is to help promote the institution of the family and the biblical principles on which it is based and to seek to introduce as many people as possible to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Within the Dobson Family Institute, we have four divisions of ministry–Family Talk, the Dobson Policy Center, the Dobson Education Center, and the Dobson Digital Library. The focus of the ministries is to encourage and equip families to live out their Christian faith within their homes and communities. One of the key means by which we accomplish this goal is through our daily broadcasts heard nationally on numerous radio stations and other digital platforms and devices. The flagship program consists of a daily 26-minute talk show that discusses topics of interest to families, including child-rearing, marriage, policy/culture, family finance, medical and psychological issues, and family counsel.
