Pastor Hunter served under Bishop Zenobie Davis, Sr., who is her father and Pastor over The Greater Friendship Church. She held many offices such as Missionary President, Youth President, Choir Director, and Church Secretary just to name a few. She served faithfully in her church as a builder of the body of Christ. Pastor Hunter was released into full-time evangelism in 1994. She served in various churches as evangelist, teacher, preacher, ministered in prisons, street corners, nursing homes, shelters, hospitals, group homes, and wherever the Lord would lead. In May 1995, the Lord led her to start a neighborhood bible study group in her home. Shortly thereafter, with much prayer and consultation with her pastor, she accepted the call of Pastor. Pastor Hunter did not launch out to pastorate until her father/pastor retired due to health issues. Then, God told her it was her time. The Friendship Church Outreach Ministry was founded on December 3, 1995, with 10 members. Since that time, the Lord has blessed the ministry with approximately 500 members and still growing. The Lord led Pastor Hunter to take an early retirement in December 2000, to give more time to the work of the ministry. In September 2001, the Lord blessed Friendship to purchase their own church building, 5252 Addison Rd, Chapel Oaks, Md. "To God be the Glory for the things He has done and is going to do, Hallelujah!" Pastor Hunter has traveled throughout the world as far as Trinidad, preaching in national and international conventions, and local churches.

She is the first licensed "Woman Pastor" of the Bible Way Churches Worldwide and In the summer of 2006 she was the first women pastor to become a District Elder of the Bible Way Churches Worldwide. She serves as a trailblazer for the women of God. Pastor Hunter is fully committed to the things of God. She is a praiser and worshipper and will lift up the name of Jesus anywhere and everywhere she goes. She loves the assignment the Lord has called her to do, and that is "reaching and preaching" for Jesus, with the reward of souls being won to the Kingdom of God. Pastor Hunter has always had a gift in singing; she is one who loves to flow in the anointing of God.
