WASHINGTON (RNS) Beheadings, enslavement, kidnappings and rape plague minority religious communities across the Middle East, and it's time for President Obama to fill a job created to address their plight, a group of prominent evangelicals, scholars and other religious leaders told the White House.
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, a full-time volunteer, serves as the Chairman of the Community Resource Network, a non-profit organization that, he founded, 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 “A Community Conversation,” setting a framework for understanding social issues that impact all of us and providing connections to opportunities to help. Each week, social issue experts help to set the tone for delivering solutions through practical action steps.
