Giles Family.jpeg

Pastor Kenneth G. Giles is one of three children born to William and Barbara Giles of Oak Park, Michigan.  After completing High School, he attended Grace College in Winona Lake, Indiana. It is during his time at Grace that he acknowledged his call to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. Pastor Giles preached his initial sermon on May 28, 1995 at the New Providence Baptist Church in Detroit, Michigan where he had been reared, under the leadership of Pastor E.N. Jennings. After graduating college, Pastor Giles moved to Fort Wayne, Indiana to serve as Minister of Music for the St. John Baptist Church under the leadership of the late Pastor J.W. Bledsoe. Once he felt the Lord leading him back to Michigan, Pastor Giles united with the Galilee Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Tellis Chapman. The Lord has used each experience and transition to transform him and prepare him for the journey ahead. In 2002 he became the proud pastor of the Greater St. Mark Baptist Church in Detroit, Michigan. The Lord has truly blessed this union and together they strive to present Christ in a clear and caring way to all people. He deems it a privilege to serve in this capacity and is grateful for the wonderful people and responsibility that God has entrusted to his care.  Pastor Giles is an extreme advocate for education. As a lifelong learner, he obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and Christian Ministries as well as dual Master’s Degrees in Practical Theology and Counseling. Pastor Giles is a licensed counselor in the state of Michigan and has the honor of serving as an adjunct professor for Moody Bible Institute, Michigan Regional Campus. His pride and joy in life is his wife and best friend, Taneia Giles who is an assistant principal in the Ann Arbor Public School System. Together they have three wonderful children; Kiara, Kennedy and Tyler.
