Rev. Solomon is the Pastor of the Refuge Temple Or Our Lord Jesus Christ. When he was a boy, he recalls wanting to be a preacher. His family were members of the A.M.E. Church when he was born, however, after he became a minister in the Pentecostal Church they converted. He remembers baptising his mother and several of his sister. Rev. Solomon has made it all the way to the top in his denomination; in 1992, he became the Presider of the National and International Body of The Church Of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
