Our Pastor

Dr. Carl J. Solomon is the second of three sons born to Merion and Charlotte Solomon, who sought to instill in him a belief in God at a very early age. He was personally introduced to Jesus Christ and accepted the Lord as his personal Savior through the witness of John Lewis. Afterward he was discipled in the Christian faith by his pastor Bishop Walter Thomas Sr.

Reverend Solomon served as an associate minister and as an Assistant to the Pastor at the New Psalmist Baptist Church for a number of years, until the United Baptist Church elected him and extended the call to him to serve as their pastor in 1991.  Reverend Solomon accepted the call and has served the church since. Under his pastoral leadership, the church has experienced growth and development in a variety of areas and continues to do so. 

Dr. Solomon has been invited to preach and teach the Word of God across the country and abroad, to include: Alaska, Zimbabwe Africa, Sao Paulo Brazil, and Nassau Bahamas. In 2013, under Bishop Claude Alexander Jr.’s Hampton Minister’s Conference Administration, Dr. Solomon was privileged to be the Morning Preacher of one the nations premiere preaching conferences, the Hampton’s Minister’s Conference.

Dr. Solomon holds the following earned degrees: Bachelors Degree in Philosophical Theology from Coppin State University, Masters Degree in Spiritual and Pastoral Care from Loyola University Maryland, and Doctorate of Ministry from United Theological Seminary. He also has received an honorary doctorate degree from Eastern Theological Seminary.
