Disgraced pastor and former Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) president Johnny Hunt continues to preach despite the credible allegations of sexual abuse against him, as stated in the 2022 Guidepost Solutions report.

“Preaching close to my home in Woodstock this Sunday November 12 at Church 1025 in Monroe, GA.,” Hunt posed on Instagram. “I hope to see you in one of our 3 morning services.”

After asking his Instagram followers for prayer, Hunt said, “We’re going to have a great time together.”

Hunt is preaching not only on Sunday morning but also at a Men’s Steak Supper that Church 1025 is hosting on Saturday night.

Last month (Oct. 8), Hunt preached at Woodstock Church Jasper, an SBC church in Jasper, Georgia. He encouraged those close to Jasper to join him and his wife, Janet, and said that they’re “looking forward to being with friends, preaching the gospel, fellowshipping with God’s people, singing the gospel, and most of all watching Jesus change lives.”

Following a video announcement from four pastors clearing Hunt to return to ministry in November 2022, current SBC president Bart Barber said in a statement that he “would permanently ‘defrock’ Johnny Hunt if I had the authority to do so.”

Just a couple months later, Hunt returned to the pulpit at Hiland Park Baptist Church and filled in for its senior pastor, Steven Kyle—one of the four pastors on Hunt’s pastoral restoration team. Hunt filled the pulpit for another pastor on his pastoral restoration team in March when he preached at New Season Church for lead pastor Steve Flockhart.

Both Hiland Park Baptist Church and New Season Church are SBC churches and were informed by the SBC’s Credentials Committee that they would be the subject of an inquiry to see whether they should be disfellowshipped for allowing Hunt to preach.

Earlier this year (March 17), Hunt filed a lawsuit against the SBC, the SBC Executive Committee (EC), and Guidepost Solutions for defamation and invasion of privacy.
