James and Mary Giles

Ocala, FL

My name is James Giles and my wife’s name is Mary. We lead the Giles Ministry. In August of 2014 we celebrated 34 years of marriage. We have two grown sons and two grand children, whom we are raising. I was ordained an Episcopal priest through the Diocese of Central Florida in 2005 and have remained canonically resident to this day while serving as supply clergy in both Mississippi and Missouri.

In 2013, I received a call to serve as vicar of a Coventry mission in Ocala. We are currently serving here while forming a community outreach called Magnolia Nights. Mary is finishing up her AA degree through the College of Central Florida and I find myself on the board of a local food and outreach ministry called Gateway to Hope.

Mary and I were commissioned as Church Army USA Captains in 2006 while serving in disaster recovery on the Mississippi Gulf Coast following Hurricane Katrina. We partnered with a recovery ministry called God’s Katrina Kitchen. We also served as mission coordinators for The Society of Anglican Missionaries and Senders to the Gulf Coast as part of our ministry there. SAMS played an instrumental role in directing us to Pass Christian, MS where we fell into the ministry God was orchestrating there.

Mississippi opened us up to working with addictions and in 2008 we began working with a Church Army officer (Mark) and recovered addict who had established a satellite addiction recovery program outside St. Louis, MO. Mark had found God and recovery through the Church Army USA program established in Branson, MO. During our service under Mark, Mary and I did counseling, Bible study and office administration, among other things.

In 2009, we received custody of our grandchildren, Gavin and Katelynn, and in 2010 we moved to Dunmor, KY to reconnect with a disaster-relief ministry which had been renamed God’s Kitchen. Our duties there included helping facilitate relief during the disastrous tornado outbreak of 2012, and after the earthquake in Haiti.
