Yesterday morning at our AiG staff chapel, we were privileged to have as a guest speaker, Pastor Johnny Hunt of Georgia (his wife Janet accompanied him along with two grandchildren and some friends). He was the recent president of the Southern Baptists.
Pastor Hunt is the senior pastor of First Baptist Church Woodstock, Georgia. He has served as the senior pastor there since 1986. Under his leadership, the church has grown from 250 in Sunday school in 1986 to over 6,500 currently.
In 1996, he was elected the president of the pastors’ conference of the Southern Baptist Convention. In 2008, he was elected the president of the Southern Baptist Convention and is the last outgoing president.
He is a native of North Carolina, received his education from Gardner-Webb College, and the Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. He has also received honorary doctorates from Immanuel Baptist Theological Seminary, Covington Theological Seminary, and Tennessee Temple University.
His devotional message was very stirring, and staff certainly were thrilled to have had the opportunity of hearing this great man of God with such a zeal for gospel—live in our theatre at the Creation Museum.
I want to share his devotion with you. You can listen to it below (around 25 minutes):
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
