Dr. James C. Dobson


More than 30 years ago, Dr. James C. Dobson founded Focus on the Family to undergird Christian values for families in today’s world. What began with a radio program on a few stations in 1977 has grown to a network of more than 3,000 facilities in North America – with thousands more in 160 countries worldwide – plus a daily commentary heard by more than 220 million people.

After a long history of service with Focus on the Family, Dr. Dobson retired from the ministry he founded in February, 2010, and launched a new daily radio program, Family Talk, which is heard on Christian radio stations across the country.

"Through prayer and God’s direct intervention, Alan Sears has developed one of the most effective and powerful Christian organizations in the nation."
