June HuntNASHVILLE (NRB) – Hope for the Heart received the 2018 NRB Strategic Partnership Award on Friday, March 2, at Proclaim 18, the NRB International Christian Media Convention in Nashville, Tennessee.

Founded by June Hunt, the ministry is built on the foundation of the 100-topic Biblical Counseling Keys Library that provides biblical counseling and coaching for contemporary concerns.

The ministry produces two listener-supported and award-winning radio broadcasts – the live call-in biblical counseling program Hope in the Night, and the half-hour production Hope for the Heart in which Hunt provides one-on-one biblical guidance to callers. Through publishing and radio, the message of hope is distributed in more than 30 languages on six continents.
