Featured Alumni: Ann Dunagan, Class of 1983
Ann Dunagan ('83) has led a life full of adventure, sacrifice, and devotion since her graduation from King's in 1983. As a mother of seven, international minister, and published author, Ann Dunagan has taken her passion for the Lord, her family, and the world's hurting to the corners of the globe.
After attending King's from sixth grade through graduation, Ann married her husband Jon in 1985 and graduated from Oral Roberts University in 1986 with a degree in Elementary Education. Shortly after graduation, Ann and Jon started to minister together, and founded HARVEST MINISTRY in 1987.The organization emphasized city-wide evangelism, church planting, supporting orphans and motivating Christians for world missions. Personally, Ann traveled with Harvest Ministry to over 30 countries speaking to women, preaching in villages, and encouraging families.
During her 25-plus years in ministry, Ann raised seven children who range in age from 13 years old to adult and have three grandchildren (along with caring for 1000+ orphan children in East Africa and Southeast India). She has authored several books including The Mission Minded Family.
Currently, Ann, Jon, and Harvest Ministry are heading into a new season in their work. Their focus has turned to equipping the next generations to serve in local and global missions. "All across the globe the needs are huge," Ann says. "So many sins and injustices should grieve our hearts and move us to action. We need to raise strong sons and daring daughters who will advance the Kingdom of God." To learn more about And and Jon's ministries you can visit their websites at: www.harvestministry.org and www.daringdaughters.org.
During her own time as a young girl, Ann remembers fond moments of being a King's student. She played the beloved character Snoopy in "A Charlie Brown Musical," ran cross country, and brought school spirit as a Knight's cheerleader. Though she admits to having a conscious goal in high school to be voted "Most School Spirit," she was instead awarded "Loudest Voice!" Spiritually, she remembers feeling supported by Mrs. Zilstra, who spent time in prayer with her during difficult times.
Though God has taken Ann down a particular path since her graduation from King's, she knows He has unique plans for each and every person. She leaves this year's King's graduates with this advice: "Love God, live pure, and love others. Don't just live for the moment, but live every moment for eternity...and the glory of God."
