As president of Prison Fellowship, Garland Hunt speaks about the hope of Christ to inmates across the country and directs the efforts of the ministry’s army of committed staff and volunteers. He came to the ministry in 2011 with high-profile experience in state-level criminal justice. For six years, including two years as chairman, he served on the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles, and Governor Sonny Perdue appointed him to be Georgia’s commissioner of juvenile justice. In addition, Hunt has filled positions of leadership in the Church. He previously served as the executive pastor of The Father’s House and vice president of a community ministry organization, both based in Atlanta. He was also a pastor at Raleigh International Church in North Carolina from 1993 to 1999. Though a native of Atlanta, Hunt earned his bachelor’s degree and his law degree from Howard University in Washington, D.C. He and his wife, Eileen, have three adult children: Garland Jr., Christa, and Jeremy.
