Interview with Bishop Ken Giles, Author of Prayer, Marriage and the Leadership Roles of the Husband and Wife

Bishop Ken Giles began full-time ministry in 1993 as an inner-city Missions Leader in Dallas, Texas, while at Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship under Dr. Tony Evans. He later served there as Assistant Executive Director of their nonprofit corporation. In 1998, he returned to his hometown of Beaumont, Texas, and served as Pastor of Outreach at Cathedral of Faith Baptist Church and Executive Director of their nonprofit corporation. In 2000, Lincoln Bible Church was planted in the Beaumont/Port Arthur area and is now located in the Greater Houston Texas area where Bishop Ken Giles and his wife, Pastor Sheila Giles provide servant leadership. Bishop Giles has a Master of Education Administration from Prairie View A&M University and a Master of Theology from Southeast Texas Theological Seminary.


Where did you grow up?

Beaumont, Texas

When did you begin writing?

In May 2005

What inspired you to write your book?

The Lord directed me to write the book as I was preparing for a Mother's Day message.

How is it similar to other books in its genre? How is it different?

It is similar to other books, in that it addresses the topical area that is absent in many pulpits and churches. It is different, in that it extrapolates in an expository fashion the God-given identity and roles of the man and woman.

Additionally, it gives clarity to the Lord's expectations and requirements necessary to secure His blessings in the marriage, family and generations.

What is the most important thing readers can learn from your book?

How to and why to pray, and how to position themselves, their marriage and family for the blessings the Lord has reserved for them in Christ Jesus.

What is up next for you?

More writing and speaking events.

Is there anything you would like to add?

My wife and I share a burden and passion from the Lord to bring Him glory and bless His people.
