Pastor Sabrina Carlton
Let me introduce you to Sabrina Michelle aka “military brat” who entered this world on August 15, 1969, in Alamogordo, NM to the proud parents of Apostle John & Pastor Carmen Fults. She is the oldest of two children. Her father served a total of 25 years in the Air Force, so her childhood experience involved living in multiple states and overseas in England for 3 years. The last military assignment was to Minot AFB in 1985 where she completed her junior and senior year and graduated from Minot High School. One year after graduating high school, Pastor Sabrina married a young airman in the Air Force and they were assigned to Upper Heyford AFB, England. There she began her relationship with the Lord and became active singing in various gospel choirs, praise teams, and eventually directing youth and adult choirs. However, after their four-year assignment in England, God had a plan, so they received the news that they were being reassigned back to Minot AFB, ND. This is where Pastor Sabrina spent her time serving at “Church of the Living God,” working part-time as a bank teller at a local credit union and pursuing her college degree. In December 1998, she was able to graduate from Regents College with a Bachelor of Science in Finance. Only 2 years later, the military relocated them to Tinker AFB, OK, and had the opportunity to visit Restoration Community Church. They soon became members under Bishop Robert D. Taylor in June 2000, and since that time, Pastor Sabrina has served as the ‘Choir Director’, ‘Praise Team Member’, ‘Church Treasurer’, ‘G.Y.R.L. Friday Leader’, ‘Women of Excellence Leader’, and Church Administrator’. Unfortunately, after 20 years of marriage, she and her ex-husband divorced in 2008. However, this pushed her to pursue a long-time goal of returning to school. She enrolled in Mid-America Christian in August 2008 and with the grace of God, graduated with a Master of Business Administration in August 2010. During that very dark time in Pastor Sabrina’s life, she clung onto her favorite scripture, Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
After extensive healing, God urged her to help encourage and support women (of any age) who have also experienced hurt especially from break-ups, and divorce. Pastor Sabrina started leading a young ladies group that began in the home under the leadership of Minister Deidra Carpenter called G.Y.R.L. (God’s Youthful Royal Ladies) once a month which led to God moving her to step up and take leadership of the ladies’ group for Restoration Community Church. Currently, Pastor Sabrina also serves as Administrator for F.A.M.I. (Faith Association of Ministries International) which involves overseeing a team to plan their Annual Conference. On December 31, 2016, Sabrina met the love of her life, Terrance Carlton. They were united in marriage in June 2019. Pastor Sabrina’s gifts and anointing stand-out and makes room for her. Her greatest passion is encouraging others of how much God loves them and she loves to see others succeed! If you meet her, you will not forget her!
