Rev. Gregory Hunter was recently installed as the Senior Pastor of Olivet Missionary Baptist Church.
Hunter accepted his call to ministry in 1989 and preached his first sermon at Berkeley Mt. Zion Baptist Church. Under the mentorship of Bishop Gordon Humphrey, Hunter nurtured and sharpened his preaching, teaching, and leadership skills. As Humphrey transitioned to Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church, Hunter became Staff Pastor of Olivet in 2011.

To ensure effective ministry, he recently enrolled into Faith Evangelical College and Seminary and is pursuing a B.A. in Pastoral Leadership and Counseling.
