I am beyond devastated. Pastor Giles was not only my pastor, he was my friend and mentor. I raised my daughter under his teachings. I am a better person today because of his teachings and obedience to the Lord. Pastor Giles, I love you and your family so much - my heart is broken. Yet I know what you taught us and I know you are with our Heavenly Father. For selfish reasons I am saddened but spirit says "no more pain." Well done thy faithful servant.

A flood of memories from the days of F.I.R.E. as teenagers to visiting him at his Church as Adults.... Pastor Giles remained the same. A Man of Integrity, A Man of God, A Man on FIRE for God. A Man Anointed to Preach The Word. A Man who communicated by The Word. A Man who Lived The Word of God! My Brotha TAKE YOUR WELL DESERVED REST IN HIM. To His Family, May the Peace of God; The Power of His Healing Virtue, continue to Keep You! May you find strength in this very difficult hour of bereavement. You're forever in my thoughts and prayers!

My deepest condolences to you family and Church family. The believer not only is well assured by faith that there is another and a happy life after this is ended, but he has good hope, through grace, of heaven as a dwelling-place, a resting-place, a hiding-place. In our Father's house there are many mansions, whose Builder and Maker is God. 2 Corinthians 5:1-8
