    Pastor Michael Hunter and his wife, Pastor Sanetta, became the Senior Pastor and First Lady of Emerald City Bible Fellowship in June 2023. 

    He and his wife of 35 years have two sons, one “daughter-in-love” and two grandchildren.

    Pastor Hunter is committed to cultivating multi-ethnic ministry and believes it is imperative for the body of Christ to collaborate and work together as one.

    As a Pastor and a man of God, he is firmly committed to the Word of God in both practice and preaching, and also believes that each member of the body of Christ has a God-given gift, purpose and calling, and that the family is the fabric of our society.

    Prior to coming to ECBF, the Hunters pastored Spirit and Truth Worship Center in Kent, WA for 14 years. They have ministered in various capacities for over 30 years.

    Myra moved to Seattle with her husband of 40 years and started attending ECBF soon after. They moved here to join their two daughters and son-in-law. She is originally from south Louisiana, then was a resident in the Midwest for 24+ years where she was involved in local church ministry and a Bible College. No longer in hurricane or tornado country, she is enjoying the beautiful PNW, though does not look forward to being surprised by the rumblings of an earthquake!

    She is Gigi to her “adopted grandchildren” from another family. They bring much love and laughter to her life. In her free time she loves sewing, quilting, reading, quiet, as well as time with my family and friends.

    I have been a member of ECBF for 9 years, with my wife, Roxanne. Our three children were all born in that time. I lead our Men’s Fellowship ministry and have also served with Kingdom Kids. My hobbies tend toward the geeky, including things like fiction reading, group table games like card games or board games, and playing video games (especially in The Legend of Zelda series). I also thoroughly enjoy listening to sports radio about the Seahawks and Mariners, and if time and weather permit, my favorite way to relax is time in a hammock.
