June Hunt and Hope For The Heart Celebrates 30th Anniversary
by Presenting the “Hope for the Future” Award at NRB Convention
In celebration of Hope For The Heart’s 30th Anniversary, June Hunt will present the first of many, Hope for the Heart – Hope for the Future – awards at this years’ NRB Convention. Ms. Hunt, whose life’s work has yielded landmark contributions in the field of biblical counseling and practical guidance, founded the organization in 1986.
Hope For The Heart’s resources provide “God’s Truth for Today’s Problems” to equip pastors and spiritual leaders, licensed professional counselors, caregivers and caring individuals with “biblical hope and practical help.” After years of teaching and research, Hunt developed 100 topical “Biblical Counseling Keys” – exploring definitions, characteristics, causes and steps to solution for topics ranging from Anger and Depression to Marriage and Parenting. These “Keys” have become the foundation for the ministry’s expansion, including the “Biblical Counseling Institute” and two popular radio programs: “Hope In The Night,” Hunt’s live two-hour call-in counseling program, and “Hope For The Heart,” which airs on nearly 900 radio outlets around the world. Hope For The Heart is quickly expanding internationally with resources translated into 30 languages, touching six continents, and are used in 60 countries with various formats including print, audio, and video.
“As Christian communicators, if we want to impact our culture for Christ – whether it be now or in the future — we must be real and we must be relevant. Technology is certainly changing how we communicate … in real and relevant ways. This years’ Hope For The Future award will recognize extraordinary talent, expertise, and leadership in the field of technology — which enables all of us in broadcasting to have an even farther reaching impact in a world that desperately needs biblical hope and practical help,” shares Ms. Hunt.
The Hope For The Future award will be presented at NRB’s Wednesday evening Worship Service, held at 7:00 p.m. in the Delta A Ballroom.
