Pastor Joel Hunter will be on President Obama’s Advisory Faith Council. I caught up with the Mega-Church pastor today at The White House. He and the other 14 Council members met with the President in the Oval Office Thursday.
Joel Hunter is a conservative Evangelical pastor who has developed a very healthy and friendly relationship with the President and his religious team. Pastor Hunter was the one who delivered the benediction in Denver the night Barack Obama gave his acceptance Speech at Mile high Stadium. He is a key member on this council, someone who doesn’t necessarily agree with Obama on every issue ( probably many issues) but he’s willing to work to find common ground.
Here's a little highlight of what he has to say about President Obama:
"This is a President who wants to engage and include conservative Evangelicals.This is not a partisan President."
The interview runs about 7 minutes.
