First Lady Christine Solomon is a strong advocate of the family unit and
views each member in Christ as part of her extended spiritual family. She is a visionary
at heart and has seen God bring many visions into reality during her ministry. Lady Solomon has “the
spirit to serve,” as she has served the church in many aspects since childhood. She is currently
the Director of the Women’s Ministries, “Sisters of Vision”, at Refuge Vision Ministries Houston, Texas
and Director of the Women’s Ministries at Refuge Temple Atlanta, Georgia both under the dynamic leadership
of her loving husband and Pastor, Dr. Elijah Solomon. Her vision is for the people of God to develop spiritually,
intellectually, and physically serving our Lord Jesus Christ.
Lady Solomon completed a Bachelor of Science Degree in Sociology and trained as a Social Worker

for 23 years as an elementary school teacher in the Houston Independent School District. She was acknowledged
among her peers as the Outstanding Educator of the Year in 2000 and nominated for Who’s Who among American Women in
2006. Lady Solomon has the ability to communicate and minister cross-culturally and inter-generationally
the love she has for Christ and the ministry. She is thankful to God who is prospering the Ministry where families are being
blessed as they find their purpose and develop their potential in Christ.
Lady Solomon has served the body of Christ both on the national as well as
the local level. She served as the corresponding secretary for the International Sunday School Churches
of Our Lord Jesus, and served as treasurer for the Ministers’ Deacons Wives Guild Texas Diocese. In
addition to that she was elected as president of the Texas Diocese Apostolic Academic Teen (AAT). Various churches and organizations

Lady Solomon’s favorite scripture, “The Lord will perfect that which
concerneth me, thou mercy O’Lord endureth forever, forsake not the works of thine own hands (Psalm 138:8),” exemplifies
the way she lives her life with a “Spirit To Serve.”.
Lady Solomon is the proud mother of two daughters Eleshia Monique Spence (Wally) and Keturah Davis (Ulysses),
and four wonderful granddaughters and three handsome grandsons. To God Be The Glory!
