SBC president Hunt’s cancer surgery a success
    January 8 2010 by Associated Baptist Press

    WOODSTOCK, Ga. — Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) president Johnny Hunt underwent successful cancer surgery Jan. 7 at Northside Hospital in Atlanta. An update on the First Baptist Church of Woodstock, Ga., website said Hunt rested well after the operation and was expected to be released from the hospital Jan. 8.
    He will return to the doctor for a check-up Jan. 15. Hunt, 57, announced in November he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer. He was elected SBC president in 2008 and re-elected to a customary second term last year, when he also appointed a 23-member task force to study the denomination’s efficiency and effectiveness.
    A one-time high-school dropout and pool-room manager before accepting Christ in 1973, Hunt is a graduate of Gardner-Webb University and Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. He has led the Woodstock congregation, with 17,600 members the third largest house of worship in metropolitan Atlanta, since 1986.
