Today we have the privilege of bringing you this interview with Pastor Johnny Hunt who recently has announced his willingness to be nominated as a candidate for SBC President when our messengers meet in Indianapolis in June. He will be nominated by Dr. Ted Traylor, pastor of Olive Baptist Church in Pensacola, Florida.
Johnny Hunt is the pastor of First Baptist Church in Woodstock, Georgia. Baptist Press reports that “during his first year as pastor, the church baptized 318 people and had 268 additions by statement and letter. Since he arrived, the church has seen average Sunday school attendance grow from 275 to 4,705, according to the 2007 Annual Church Profile.”
We pray that this interview helps everyone get to know more of the heart of this great man of God.
Within the week we also hope to bring you an interview with another candidate, Dr. Avery Willis. Continue to prayerfully consider whom God would lead you to support to be the next leader of our convention. See you in Indy in June!
