Johnny Hunt to be Featured at BMAA National Meeting

JohnnyHunt-Hi-Res-06-01-09Johnny Hunt, pastor of First Baptist Church in Woodstock, Georgia, will be the featured keynote speaker at this year’s BMAA National Meeting at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, April 27. According to BMAA president Jason Aultman, “His love for and knowledge of church revitalization will deliver a timely message for our churches. Hunt’s message will be an excellent complement to our missionary commissioning that evening.”

In his twenty-nine years as pastor of First Baptist Church, Hunt says his focus has been on “others.” While the church has experienced significant growth under his leadership, it is growth of the person, not the platform that continues to energize a ministry that sees its best days ahead.

Foremost among the “others” he lives for are his wife of forty-five years Janet Allen Hunt, his two daughters Deanna Carswell and Hollie Hixson, and his four grandchildren Katie, Carson, Hope and Addie.

Before coming to Woodstock, Pastor Johnny served at three churches in North Carolina: Lavonia Baptist Church in Mooresboro, Falls Baptist Church in Wake Forest, and his home church, Longleaf Baptist Church in Wilmington.

Pastor Johnny’s educational credits include a B.A. in Religion from Gardner-Webb College where he was voted Ministerial Student of the Year in 1979. He continued on to Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary where he earned a Masters of Divinity in 1981. Southeastern honored Pastor Johnny in 1997 by naming him Chair of Biblical Preaching in 1997. He has also received several honorary doctorates over the years for his work in ministry.
