Our Pastors

pastor johnny hunt

Others. That singular focus summarizes the last 29 years of contagious passion that “Pastor Johnny” has imparted to First Baptist Church Woodstock and the countless lives across the globe his preaching and shepherding have touched. 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 45 years, Janet Allen Hunt, his two daughters Deanna Carswell and Hollie Hixson; and his 4 grand children, Katie, Carson, Hope & Addie.

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

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