Hunter was born into a home that loved the Lord. His parents led him to Christ at a young age and he truly believes the Lord saved him that day and began transforming his heart to be a follower of Christ. Hunter’s father was a pastor of a church in the area and much of his childhood was spent running through the halls of the church on Sundays and Wednesdays trying not to get caught. In high school, he was involved in multiple bands and worship teams. Every time he picked up a guitar, his heart was stirred towards Christ. After graduating high school, he took the non-traditional route and traveled the country with a band playing music and leading worship at churches, schools, and clubs. After several years of traveling, the Lord called him to college where he met his now, Becky. They were married in August 2006 and now have four children: Carson, Saige, Vivian and Xander. He joined The Village Church staff in May of 2010 and feels blessed to walk and work with godly men and women who pursue Christ every day.
