Joel Hunter


Dr. Joel Hunter is a prominent community leader, pastor and bridge-builder, who seeks common ground for the common good. He is the Faith-Based President of PARABLE FOUNDATION, partnering with organisations to incubate, advance, and accelerate social change initiatives focused on empathy and education.

Neither partisan or politically oriented, Dr. Hunter, due to his ministry involvement in public policy, often relates to public officials in a pastoral role. He was a spiritual advisor to President Obama, writing devotions for him weekly and praying with him periodically.

In 2018, Orlando Magazine listed him as the #1 most powerful voice for philanthropy and community engagement. He has served in leadership councils for the World Evangelical Alliance (600 million) and the National Association of Evangelicals in the U.S (45 million).  He is continually working for peace and the God-given dignity of all people.
