To serve in this capacity, to reach college students for the sake of the Gospel, is a joy and an honor.

As an old friend of mine says, ‘If you reach the campus, you reach the world!’”
get to know solomon
Solomon joined the West Side ministry team in January 2024. Solomon grew up in Pike Road, Alabama and is the son of Kenneth and Karen Boan. Solomon has two brothers, Jackson and Holland.
He received his Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies with a dual emphasis in Greek and Youth & Family Ministry from Crowley’s Ridge College in Paragould, Arkansas, in 2023. He played basketball for the Pioneers for three years. He enjoys sports, playing disc golf, and cheering on the Auburn Tigers.
His ministry began when he and a group of friends started a student-led ministry when he was a sophomore in high school, and that is when he felt God calling him to ministry for his career. Solomon has a strong desire to help young people develop their own relationship with God. As a teenager, Solomon was surrounded by an incredible group of mentors, small group leaders, and friends who have maintained relationships with him as he entered adulthood and have been his greatest source of encouragement and prayer warriors. It is from these people that he learned the value of surrounding yourself with the family of God!
You will often hear him say, “You are loved by me, you are loved by the people in this room, and you are loved by God!”

“Preaching the Word of God is a special call from God. It’s a work that has great blessings and also great responsibilities with great challenges that only with a strong Faith in the Lord, can it be reached. Teaching the Word is powerful, because with that, you will guide the minds of people to recognize a Divine authority that will transform lives, traditions and beliefs to a simple and humble way of life in obedience to God by the Word of Truth. Christ is the center of the message. Salvation is the purpose. Preaching forgiveness of sins and the promises of eternity in Heaven, is God’s main concern before death is reached. Eternal condemnation will be the consequence if the gospel is not obeyed.”
