Meet Our Senior Pastor


Senior Pastor

Andre L. Price was born in Edison, NJ to R. Sharon and the late Paul L. Price. Andre credits his parents with providing space for him to hear the Lord’s voice at an early age.

Knowing he was called by God to serve in ministry, Andre was diligent in making sure he was prepared. He earned a B.A. in Theological Studies and a Master of Divinity from Eastern University and Palmer Theological Seminary. In addition to the pastorate, Andre is a PhD student at Villanova University focusing on systematic theology and Christian ethics.

Ordained by his father in ministry Bishop Donald Hilliard Jr., Andre faithfully served his boyhood church Cathedral International in its Perth Amboy and Asbury Park locations. In building on the foundation laid by his predecessor and former seminary professor, Dr. Tokunbo Adelekan, Andre accepted the call to continue his predecessor’s work as the 5th pastor of the Mount Olivet Tabernacle Baptist Church in Philadelphia, PA.

Andre believes he is called to minister to those influenced by hip-hop culture through the enlightening of hearts and minds to the hope that is found in Christ. Andre has a passion to bridge the gap between the academy and the church thus encouraging Christians to thoughtfully reflect on what it means to affirm the Lordship of Christ. Andre is a member of the American Academy of Religion, The Society of Pentecostal Studies, and the Society of Biblical Literature. Truly eye has not seen, nor ear heard what the Lord has in store for this young preacher/scholar.
