She began attending Gospel Tabernacle Church in Havre De Grace, MD at 4 weeks of age o and was a faithful member there for over 30 years. Her pastors were Bishop C.H. Johnson and Bishop Harry T. Lee, Sr.

She was baptized in Jesus’ name at an early age and later filled with the Holy Ghost at age 9. Her experience of being filled was somewhat like that of the great Shirley Caesar. She too lived a life of going to church and loved it so much that she and her sister Koren Carmichael Turner would often play church in their bedroom immediately after returning home. One day while playing church, her playing in the spirit turned into her being filled with the spirit of God. Her mother noticed that there was a change in her voice and immediately rushed to the bedroom where she found Christine speaking in unknown tongues as the Spirit of God gave utterance.


Lady Christine is well known for music ministry as a musician, singer, songwriter and being a promoter of the Gospel of Jesus Christ with Integrity.  Lady Christine along side her husband have founded the Power of God TV Network in 2020.  Lady Christine has traveled to various churches ministering in song and preaching the word of God from topics such as My Fight is Not With You, Dogs Don’t Bark at Parked Cars, The Crockpot, and The House of Pain to name of few.  Lady Christine Carmichael Foster also assists her husband in running (3) churches which they pastor: Soul Saving Station, Souls that Endure and Soul Restoration Ministry.  As you can see it’s always about the souls.   Lady Christine was ordained an Evangelist in 2015 by her husband Bishop Wayne N. Foster, Sr.


Lady Christine has founded several ministries to encourage women.  Women of Destiny, Life Matters, Woman to Woman and Sister’s Strengthening Sisters and there are more to come.  Lady Christine believes in pushing others to their destiny.  Her desire is to see souls saved and for women to love themselves and fulfill their God given destiny.  Lady Christine is a Co-Author in a book entitle Kingdom Women where she wrote “Finding My Shego”.  Lady Christine is an entrepreneur of many businesses, Virtual Services Manager, Licensed Realtor, Lady Christine Music Ministry, WC Property, POGB TV Network and a Certified Health Coach to name a few.


Lady Christine Carmichael Foster is married to a wonderful and supporting husband, Bishop Wayne Nathaniel Foster, Sr. She believes that his belief and support of her music is one of the primary reasons why her first CD was released she is currently working on her 3rd CD.  She is the mother of 9 beautifully talented and anointed children: Ariel, Shanelle, Lauriel, Shaquan, Tyquan, Wayne, Jr., Jasmine, Andrew, and DeJah and 20+ grandchildren.  She believes it is through their support of her over the years that she had made it through many tough times. However, because all things work together for the good of them who love the Lord…her music ministry was thus birthed. Through her pain, came her promise!

“Through many dangers toils and snares I have already come, but God has been with me through everyone."
