Pastor Stephen is originally from New England, Aroostook County in the upper part of the state of Maine. It has been said of him that “He is a unique character with a flair all his own.” “A former Marine, Pastor Stephen is a powerful speaker who will move your heart with his homespun stories and illustrations that will challenge you to truly grow and draw closer to the Lord.”
Pastor Meredith is Pastor Stephen’s counterpart. She has a gift to teach richer life applications, drawing you along into deeper maturity and growth. Meredith also is an accomplished, anointed worshipper and musician where she usually flows outside of the norm. Meredith is also an anointed writer. (You can review and purchase her books on this website.)
Our Pastors have faithfully parented us for over three decades. Within that time period, the congregation has moved from its humble beginnings to its present facility in Glenmont, New York, just outside of the capital, Albany.
Also, Mt. Moriah Children’s Home, founded by the Giles in 2000, is near and dear to their hearts. This orphanage, which is in Nyharuru, Kenya, was first birthed from a burden in Pastor Stephen’s heart given to him while in his college days. As well as leadership and oversight of the Children’s Home, there has formed a Mt. Moriah Ministries International in Kenya and Uganda where many pastors have come under the banner of Mt. Moriah and are pastoring Mt. Moriah Churches all over their nations. The Giles teach, visit and encourage these pastors as they labor in their own harvest fields.
Pastor Meredith for many years has worn dresses from all over the world monthly in our services. The heartbeat for the nations runs deep in our Pastors. Pastor Meredith has often asked the Lord why they have not been released to go fulltime to the nations. Every time the still small Voice of God speaks this—“Because the people from the nations need to find a home in your heart.” Truly God has ordained that Mt. Moriah Ministries be a House of Prayer for all Nations. Translation is offered in our services as well as our live and archived services available on this website.
