Dr. Joel Hunter from Community Resource network discusses Abolition and the Church at the Christian Abolitionists Event – Museum of the Bible, October 10, 2018

Dr. Joel C. Hunter – Faith Community Organizer

Dr. Hunter served as senior pastor of Northland Church in Longwood, FL 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, focusing on helping the marginalized – specifically homeless families. Additionally, Dr. Hunter is the immediate past Chair 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. Dr. Hunter is on the Board of Influencers for Florida Abolitionists and is the new co-chair for the Faith Alliance. He is active in some global and national leadership roles, but is focusing his efforts as a Community Faith Organizer for Central Florida and was voted by Orlando Magazine as the #1 most powerful person for philanthropy and community engagement.
