Pastor Antione J. Hutchins received Christ at an early age and has been proclaiming the Word of God ever since. He has served in all areas of ministry from Minister of Music to National Evangelist, to Senior Pastor. Pastor Hutchins holds a Bachelor of Science in Theology. He is a graduate of the Samuel DeWitt Proctor School of Theology, at Virginia Union University, in the Masters of Divinity Program. Rev. Hutchins is currently pursuing his Doctorate of Educational Ministry from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary at Boyce College in Louisville Kentucky.

In October of 2013, after signing with SOV Music, he recorded his widely anticipated debut project, along with the Christian Unity Choir, live at the Christian Unity Baptist Church (C.U.B.C.). Preaching is his passion; however anyone that has experienced his ministry knows that he is a worshiper. Many have testified that you can feel God’s greatness and authority when Pastor Hutchins ministers.
Pastor Hutchins now serves as Senior Pastor of the C.U.B.C. of Waldorf, MD, 22 years after his initial call to ministry. After just 4 years under his leadership, the church has grown from 39 on role (with an average of 12 to 20 people in weekly attendance) to nearly 600 active members, requiring two worship services and the need to renovate the current facility three times within the past three years in order to expand seating and accommodate the church’s rapid growth.
As God has bestowed favor on Christian Unity Baptist Church, Pastor Hutchins is currently leading the church to build a community legacy for future generations. C.U.B.C. is now in their new construction project on the already purchased 31 acre parcel of land in order to begin the progress of their completed campus. He is the founder and president of The Unity Corporation, a non-profit community development corporation that is geared towards the preservation of the history and legacy left by previous generations, along with the equipping and empowering the youth of today’s generation. Pastor Hutchins is also the president and CEO of
AJHutchins Ministries which serves as the home base to the evangelistic and recording artist side of his ministry.
Pastor Hutchins has established himself not just as a leader in the Kingdom of God, but in his home as well. He is a devoted and loving husband to his lovely wife, Tawanya N. Hutchins and a father to three children, Jordan, Antione Jr., and his little princess Anaya (A-nay-a). He is on a mandate by God, not only to preach and sing, but also to teach the people of God the value of worship, while bringing the revelation of God’s word in a practical way that people can grasp and apply to everyday life. His mission is to reach the masses both those saved and unsaved and transform lives by making disciples.
