He was born in Port Antonio, Jamaica, West Indies, and attended schools there, in Kingston and elsewhere. He is now and has been for quite a while a Naturalized Citizen of the United States.
He received his call to preach the Gospel through multiple confirmations of his call as follows:
1. The Word of God 2. many dreams 3. two visions 4. many spoken prophetic words 5. his desire and burden to share what God has done for him and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to see people saved, healed and set free.
6. he made a covenant with God that if a certain event took place that same day, he would "preach for Him" . That event did take place that same day and he does not want to be a covenant breaker.
Seven times cancer survivor
1) Eric was diagnosed with an almost six-inch cancerous tumor in his upper left lung in August 2009 and the doctors did not have much hope for his prognosis. He went through chemo and radiation therapies on the same day - radiation first and then chemotherapy.
During a six month check-up with his Oncologist, he remarked how well Eric was looking and doing. The Oncologist said"... Mr. Hunter, you are a strong man, I gave you a lot of chemo you are even stronger than human..." Eric responded "it is the grace and mercy of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who is responsible for my doing well"
Eric then asked the Oncologist if he knew Jesus, and he responded "Not as well as you do ..." Eric then told the Oncologist that he would like to share more about Jesus and how to establish a relationship with Jesus. He presented the wonderful Gospel of Jesus Christ. and the doctor believed the Gospel. Eric shared that God has a "Lamb's Book of Life" and come Judgement Day any name not found written in it, sadly would be sent to hell. He said he does not "... want to go there ..." Then Eric asked if he was ready to invite Jesus into his heart and life and the doctor prayed and asked Jesus into his heart and life right there in his office. (The doctor was of Chinese descent with an Asian religion. Eric bought him a Bible and a daily devotional "Jesus Calling" by Sarah Young. The doctor appreciated them and at a subsequent visit he told Eric that he has been reading both and his wife reads the devotional more than him.
Even while he was going through his cancer treatment he was still praying for others going through cancer treatment and God has healed two ladies a mother and daughter of stomach cancer in his Medical Oncologist Office.
2) God has completely healed Eric of prostate cancer; November 2013
through Robotic surgery performed by a world-renown female Christian Surgeon. She prayed for him and he prayed for her on the day of the surgery.
3) In 2016 Eric had been experiencing pain on the right side of his head for a few months. The Medical Oncologist requested a CT scan and MRI. The scans revealed that there was a tumor on the right side of his brain. This tumor was metastasized and was identified as coming from his lung 7 years before he began chemo and radiation for his lung cancer. Surgery was scheduled for May 20th., 2016. The surgery was successful and the tumor was removed.
4) He had a follow-up visit with his Radiation Oncologist within weeks of the brain surgery they had scheduled him to receive five rounds of radiation for where the tumor was now gone and also for immunotherapy. At this visit the Oncologist said that "there's a second tumor" in his brain. He logically asked why was he not told this before. He said that he was told at the initial consult and one of his daughters was with him. She did not hear anything about the second tumor and neither did he. Sometime later a PET CT scan was done and the tumor was shrinking. After a subsequent scan the tumor was completely gone. He gives credit to God, the radiation, immunotherapy and his Oncologist.
5) In recent years he was diagnosed with a tumor at the base of his brain stem.
6) A tumor on his thyroid.
7) A tumor on his pituitary
Eric had a follow-up visit about a month after brain surgery with his brain surgeon who was pleased with Eric's recovery. Eric said to the surgeon that he noticed on his website that he attended the University of Tehran, Iran Medical School. Eric asked if he was Iranian, and he said smiling "no, I'm Jewish ..." Eric then told him that Jesus was Jewish and that Jesus loves him. He asked him if he had a relationship with Jesus and he said no. Eric then took the opportunity to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ and told him that he would like to see him in Heaven. He told him how to get to heaven by sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ and told him the prayer he would like for him to pray. The surgeon prayed right there in his office and invited Jesus into his heart and life.
In 2010 Eric received a dream that said that he should go on the radio and have people call in on the air for prayer for healing. Within weeks he was able to form a non-profit corporation for his ministry the Thy Kingdom Come Healing Ministry by himself. He submitted paperwork to the Internal Revenue Service and within three months received the 501(c)(3) approval. Shortly thereafter, I received approval from the state of California. Note it usually takes a long time for the Internal Revenue Service to review and approve. But there was Divine intervention.
Eric then negotiated with a local Christian Radio Station and launched a weekly half-hour program called "The Hour of Prayer" . He then encouraged people to call the radio station with their prayer needs and would pray with them live on the air. He also shared the Gospel, read Scripture and shared testimonies received - while God did the rest in healing and delivering people.
There was a woman and a man who did not know each other and were contemplating taking their own lives. Eric prayed with them on and off the air. He did a sort of backdoor deliverance over the phone (asking God to remove anything, not of Him) and they regained a desire to live and asked God to forgive them for wanting to take their lives.
Eric has ministered in many foreign countries that include Jerusalem, Israel; Toronto, Canada; Sakila, Tanzania, East Africa; Abidjan, Ivory Coast, West Africa; Johannesburg, South Africa; Bangkok, Thailand; Singapore and Jamaica. He has also been on several mission trips.

"Integrity, passion, and purposeful living are just a few words to describe Evangelist Eric Hunter. I have observed his life for over a decade and can honestly say that he is the real deal. I have met very few people in my 30+ years of ministry that have walked the walk and actually live out their talk. He is passionate to give away the goodness of God wherever he is directed and with great confidence, I know he will serve well any church, or organization or people group.
I recommend Evangelist Eric Hunter and endorse his ministry.

"It has been my joy to work alongside Evangelist Eric Hunter for a number of years. I have found him to be a true man of God, one who wants to serve and believe for great answers to prayer. Indeed, we have seen miracles and healings through the laying on of hands and trusting in God's marvelous power.
Young people and children have been brought to the Lord through his love and the bus ministry. They have followed the ways of the Lord by being baptized in water and the Holy Spirit and were discipled by him. His love for souls includes seeking ways to distribute food to the under-served, needy, and hungry.
As a businessman, he has dedicated many hours to the Christian service of our church and the community. And as an Evangelist, he will bless your church in both spiritual and practical ways of Christian service. I sincerely recommend Evangelist Eric Hunter and his heart-felt, Christ-like ministry".
