Show Notes: Dr. Hunter served as senior pastor of Northland Church in Longwood, Florida for 32 years. In 2017 he transitioned from that role on a mission to “go from my best interpretation of what the Bible says, to my best imitation of how Jesus lived.” Now, Dr. Hunter, who in 2018 was listed for the fifth year, as one of Orlando’s “50 Most Powerful” by Orlando Magazine, is a full-time volunteer. He serves as the Chairman of the COMMUNITY RESOURCE NETWORK a non-profit organization, he founded, that focuses on helping the marginalized – specifically homeless families. Additionally, Dr. Hunter serves as the Chairman of the Central Florida Commission on Homelessness, a Florida-based nonprofit organization comprised of government officials, corporations, faith communities, and other non-profit organizations working together to end homelessness.
He also leads SIMPLE HELP, a growing movement of everyday helpers doing simple things to make the world a better place. Each week, social issue experts help to set the tone for delivering solutions to community problems through A COMMUNITY CONVERSATION which includes Dr. Hunter’s interview program, POWER TALKS, on TV 45 Tuesdays and Fridays at 9 PM and a radio program that he co-hosts with his son, Joel D. Hunter MD, THE BRIGHT SIDE, on 102.5 WFLA on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays at 7 PM. Additionally, Dr. Hunter can be heard daily giving a MINUTE DEVOTIONAL on Z 88.3 FM Radio.
A longtime bridge-builder who seeks common ground for the common good, Dr. Hunter approaches today’s challenges in a biblical and balanced manner. Cooperation and partnership are hallmarks of his ministry.
