Partnership missions: Biker ministry requires ‘heart calling’

In the past decade, Don Hunter has had two open-heart surgeries, 35 heart catheterizations and 13 stents inserted into his arteries. Still, that hasn’t prevented him from having a God-called heart for ministry to one of America’s most misunderstood and feared sub-cultures—biker clubs. Hunter is the senior chaplain with Oklahoma Chaplains for Bikers, which just celebrated its 10th anniversary of ministry to biker clubs across the...
