Leading First Baptist Woodstock for the past 32 years, Hunt — who announced he will serve as the senior vice president of evangelism and leadership for the North American Mission Board — will work side by side with Morton during a transition period.
We are constantly lifting Cartersville First Baptist up in our prayers as they also begin a process of transition. Established in as Enon Baptist Church, the place of worship changed its name to First Baptist Church Woodstock in and moved to its present location in , Ormsby said. I want to steward this assignment well.
Grace Church: Greeley, CO > Pastor Travis Allen
This opportunity should look like what God wants it to look like, not what I want it to look like. While I am certain there will be challenges, I honestly do not know what those may look like at this time.
However, it has also been that way at Cartersville First for the past five years. Both natives of Georgia, he and his wife, Carrie, are the parents of three children: Zeke, 10, Madie, 8, and Abe, 5. Ministry is my heart and soul. I cannot imagine it any other way. I was blessed to be taught and trained by some of the finest people on Earth — my family, my home church in Warner Robins, and all my college and seminary professors over the years.
This is absolutely one of my fondest memories here, and I will treasure this forever. As a parent and pastor, this is the ultimate honor. Under Morton's leadership, the place of worship kicked off its currently paused Legacy Project building campaign in Beyond being a first-class preacher, he is both personable and genuine. He was highly involved in the community and was as at ease with dyed-in-the-wool Baptists as he was with folks who had never darkened the door of a church.
His love of God shines through in his winsomeness and in his conviction. Whenever I had a chance to share company with him, I always left the meeting challenged to be a better man.
I'm not sure what else you could ask for in a pastor. He is my friend, and I will miss him.
I am excited to see how Woodstock will be blessed by having him, and am equally excited to see who God will bring to Cartersville First Baptist to continue leading our church into the future.
