‘Such as these’ 7 – Joel Hunter

Joel Hunter

We’ve got this universal, evocative cause that is biblically mandated. YOU give them something to eat. This “you” is plural in Mark 6.

Joel Hunter, pastor of Northland: A Church Distributed in Longwood, Florida, spoke suring the “… such as these” conference. The message was great, but I only took a few notes, paraphrased here:

My heart is for the spiritual maturity of my congregation. … Many of us have come to think of church as therapy, as self-actuallization exercsies, as a place where we are gratified and affirmed in our own path. … 

I have great fears for my church, for my country. … “How much of my money can I keep.” … 

The church needs the weight of the weak. The weight of the weak will save the strong.

Hunter spoke during a May 24-25, 2011, conference titled, “…such as these…”: An Evangelical Advocacy Response to Global Childhood Hunger. The event was held at Dallas Baptist University and sponsored by Bread for the World, Texas Baptist Christian Life Commission, National Association of Evangelicals, Micah Challenge, Baptist World Alliance, Christian Reformed World Relief Committee, and DBU.
