A cutting edge motivator, educator, community advocate & orator of the gospel, Jawane Hilton still maintains his humility in spite the many accolades given. Born and raised in the culturally mixed and economically diverse city of Carson, CA in a single parent home, he was faced with the same challenges that most endure when raised in that type of environment.

Currently he is enrolled in the Haggard School of Theology (HST) at Azusa Pacific University in the Masters of Divinity program.
Pastor Hilton’s spiritual base is his heart desire and the love that he lives for and at only 31 years of age he is already moving into the things in which God has called him to be. In October of 2007 God birthed the long awaited vision City on the Hill Church a ministry concerned about building people. His earnest prayer is that God would allow him to open eyes and change lives of every person under the sound of his voice, thus making a significant difference within the community.
He also served as the Regional Director of Protocol, for the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship under the leadership of Bishop Milton. M. White, a position which required him to utilize his skills of mass delegation, coordination, and timeliness. As a result of his faithfulness he has recently been appointed to Office of District Overseer of the Los Angeles Harbor District. He is serving under California State Bishop Johnny Ray Withers, Jr.
