    WOODSTOCK, Ga. (BP)—Southern Baptist Convention President Johnny Hunt has announced that he has been diagnosed with prostate cancer and will undergo initial treatment in January.

    Hunt, 57, pastor of the Atlanta-area First Baptist Church of Woodstock, reported the diagnosis in a statement to Southern Baptists released through Baptist Press Nov. 23.

    Hunt was elected SBC president during the convention’s June 2008 annual meeting in Indianapolis and re-elected at this year’s meeting in Louisville, Ky., when he was instrumental in the formation of a 23-member Great Commission Resurgence Task Force.

    In October, Hunt and his wife Janet visited four countries in the Middle East and North Africa, accompanied by several other First Baptist staff members and pastors and missions leaders from churches in Georgia, Alabama and North Carolina.

    Hunt is the third SBC leader this year to disclose a prostate cancer diagnosis, following O.S. Hawkins in August and Jack Graham in June. Hawkins is president of GuideStone Financial Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention. Graham, a former SBC president, is pastor of the Dallas-area Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano.

    I am sad to hear this. I have never met Bro Hunt or heard him preach, but I have only heard good about him.

    Well, they say folks with upbeat attitudes and a strong sense of purpose do well in their fight.

    I would say that puts him near the top, huh?
    Praying for JH & family. He's a great man of God.

    Dr. Hunt meets with his surgeon today at 1:45 Eastern to talk about his options. He is asking for prayer for this meeting.

    Thanks - I found a few links. I was being lazy and did not want to watch the whole service.

    Changed my question and made a mess of it trying to just clip parts out :)
    Listening to a message on worry.
