Founder, The SEND Movement & Church Doctor Ministries

Kent R. Hunter is the founder of Church Doctor Ministries. He believes that God has called him to help Christians and their churches become more effective for the Great Commission, to reach unbelievers and to make them disciples of Jesus Christ. Dr. Hunter is the author of 35 books. He has consulted more than 1,800 churches from 78 denominations, as well as nondenominational and independent churches. He developed the SEND Movement, which trains congregational members to become missionaries to those who are unchurched in their social networks. Kent writes the bimonthly Church Doctor Report and also has a podcast, Prescriptions from a Church Doctor, both found on www.churchdoctor.org.
