On Mission is a homeschool curriculum that engages children - preschool through upper elementary - with a cultural feast for their minds and hearts. Through beautiful images, living books, engaging activities, simple handicrafts, stimulating challenges, interesting stories, and wise discipleship, our children are introduced to countries and cultures in a gentle and classical way.

Cultural studies can be daunting or awkward when we aren’t empowered to share the beauty of all of God’s people from a mentality of “same, same, but different.”

  • We want to tell our children about Jesus and his love for all the world, but we can feel uncertain about discussing unreached people groups.
  • We want to show our children the experiences, lifestyles, beliefs, and beauty of all of God’s people without running into content that isn't developmentally appropriate for little eyes and ears.
  • We want to introduce the geographical features of the world in the CONTEXT of the people and animals that live upon the terrain.
  • We want a whole, healing geography and cultural education for our children that equips them with living ideas and pricks their hearts for the people of God all over the world.
  • We want to study culture, geography, and the work of missionaries around the world in the context of the history of that culture.
  • We need quick and easy implementation while also desiring beauty and depth.
  • And it would be AMAZING if the whole family could enjoy it and learn together, too!

If this is how you’ve been feeling, then you’re going to love this unique, unit study style curriculum from The Gentle + Classical Press!

What religious affiliation does this magazine have? What are the religious beliefs of the authors? Is this magazines "sponsored" by any organization?

I (Erin, founder of The Gentle + Classical Press) am a non-denominational, protestant Christian, thusly this program is written from the full belief that the Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20) was given by Jesus to all believers- past, present, and future.

If you believe that our only salvation is found in Jesus Christ as Lord (Romans 5:1), that Jesus is the hope of the world (Matthew 12:21), and that no one goes to the Father except through Christ (John 14:6), then you should find this publication theologically agreeable.

What age is the magazine created for?

This program is primarily created for children K-5th grade. However, we’ve made sure to include content that ensures that both slightly younger and slightly older children can be included without being bored or lost. 

How is this "Charlotte Mason" or Classical?

“For educative purposes, the child must learn such geography, and in such a way, that his mind shall thereby be stored with ideas, his imagination with images; for practical purposes he must learn such geography only as, the nature of his mind considered, he will be able to remember; in other words, he must learn what interests him. The educative and the practical run in one groove, and the geography lesson becomes the most charming occupation of the child’s day.

Give him next intimate knowledge, with the fullest details, of any country or region of the world, any county or district of his own country. It is not necessary that he should learn at this stage what is called the ‘geography’ of the countries of Europe, the continents of the world––mere strings off... It may be necessary to leave out a good deal, but every illustrative anecdote, every bit of description, is so much towards the child’s education. Here, as elsewhere, the question is, not how many things does he know, but how much does he know about each thing.” V1; p275

As you see, as we approach our “geography” study throughout this interesting medium, we are indeed reflecting the heart of a Charlotte Mason and Classical education to give intimate knowledge, with full details, stocking their imaginations full of living ideas.

Here are what others have to say about On Mission

“I received the copy of On Mission a couple of days back, and only had the opportunity to look and read through some pages with my kid today. I just want to say a big THANK YOU for a great quality and wonderful magazine that will be a great supplement to our homeschool curriculum. Love the Christ-centered content and let’s just say that I've been looking for something like that for a long time, and the magazine is an answered prayer! Thanks again and may God continue to bless you and your team! Looking forward to another great issue!” -Ivy

“My 8 year old girl gave this “10 stars!,” for the beautiful pictures, the recipe and craft ideas, and the story about Amy Carmichael (her favorite missionary!). I loved how this issue takes you through so many aspects of the culture of India. My favorite part is throughout the issue there are specific suggestions on how to pray for missionaries, the unreached people groups, and the people of India. We are excited for more!” -Rachel C.
