Allen Hunt is a former United Methodist minister who hosts "The Allen Hunt Show," a syndicated radio talk show that focuses on issues of faith and morality. He was formerly pastor of Mt. Pisgah United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, Georgia.
Talk radio is a natural fit for Allen. He loves to talk, and he loves people. Allen was a United Methodist pastor for nearly 20 years, including 8 years at one of the largest Methodist congregations in the world (between 4,000 - 5,000 people attending each week).
Allen grew up in the mountains in Brevard, North Carolina, and then graduated from high school in Lakeland, Florida. As a kid, he loved baseball and all things athletic. He memorized baseball box scores and NCAA tournament pairings. But the Church has usually (but not always) been a significant influence in his life.
Before entering the ministry, Allen worked in business and wandered away from God's plans for a while. Allen quickly discovered that a life serving himself, his own pleasures, and his own plans did not result in much. One day, while entering a Wall Street high-rise in New York, Allen stepped over a homeless man lying on a subway grating for warmth. At that pivotal moment, God taught Allen that it was time to leave behind his own plans and embrace God's plans for his life. A life of serving others and following Jesus. Allen then became a minister. And he has never looked back.
Allen and his wife, Anita, met in college at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia. Along the way, Anita helped Allen earn a Ph.D. in New Testament from Yale University. Together, they enjoy a life devoted to loving God and helping people discover God's purposes. They now have two daughters.

I don't know what you call that place, but it is a fun place to be. A place of anticipation, celebration, rejoicing, reunion. Do you know what they call it? Greeting area, maybe? Receiving area? Welcome Center?
You know-most airports have one-that place where friends and family members wait. In the Atlanta airport, the one I'm most familiar with, it's at the top of the escalator, that long escalator that's several stories long. At the top of that escalator people wait-friends and family-for their loved ones to arrive from the gates.Read full transcript...
