Dr. Ken Hutcherson, fondly known as “Hutch,” was the senior pastor of Antioch Bible Church near Seattle, Washington, until his passing from cancer in December 2013. Born in Alabama in the era of segregation, Hutcherson was an NFL pro football player from 1974 to 1976, playing defensive middle linebacker with the Dallas Cowboys, San Diego Chargers and Seattle Seahawks. He then spent more than two decades training young people to be on the offensive for Jesus Christ. He was the author of several books including The Church, Before All Hell Breaks Loose, and Hope is Contagious. Ken is survived by his wife, Patricia, and their four adult children.
