Bishop J.S. HuntA Man of Vision
"The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He hath anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He hath sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised..." (Luke 4:18)
..."Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles. For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him against that day." (II Timothy 1:11) Bishop Jason J.S. Hunt is a Spirit-filled and anointed gospel preacher, an effective Bible teacher, a lover of all people...and a man with a Vision.
Son of the late Elder S.S. Hunt and Mrs. Dorothy Hunt, Elder Hunt served faithfully under his father's ministry until he began his military career. While in the military, he was saved and filled with the Holy Ghost in Longbranch, New Jersey at the Holy Temple Church of God in Christ. During his tour of duty, the Lord led him through many churches within the United States, as well as Europe.
Upon his arrival back in California, he united with the McGlothen Temple Church of God in Christ, pastored by Superintendent J.A. Jennings. It was there that Elder Hunt heard the voice of the Lord leading him back to Modesto for a "Great Work". In February of 1991 he moved out on the call of God, and, founded Temple of Deliverance Church of God in Christ.
The Lord used Elder Hunt in a very powerful way. Souls were delivered, saved, and set free by Spirit-filled preaching and the laying on of hands. In 1992, while Elder Hunt continued to preach the gospel like never before, he met and married a beautiful young woman named Carla, and together they raised seven gorgeous children, her's, his and theirs. Together the blended family life was not easy but with the help of the Lord and much prayer God made a way.
During Elder Hunt's leadership, the membership of Temple of Deliverance flourished, and church moved to accommodate the growth. In 1995, God commissioned Pastor Hunt to move the ministry to Stockton, California. A building was leased and the members worked hard to ready it for services. Through it all, Pastor Hunt continued to believe God, knowing the charge given him was true and continued to move forward. God gave him a vision in a dream, and as a result, Saint's Center Community Church was born.
Upon this act of faith, God has added His blessing to the Church, and His favor upon this ministry has been abundant. Since its inception, Saint's Center has experienced phenomenal growth. Because of the growth it was necessary to implement a new morning service. Under the powerful direction of God and the continued ministry of Pastor Hunt, countless souls have been delivered, bodies healed, and broken hearts mended. He believes every member has a ministry, and encourages each member to fully develop their ministry, that they would be those faithful servants who are anointed and appointed by God.
Many new areas of ministry and growth have been and continue to be developed under this visionary leader.
