C.T. “Wailer” Giles
Wailer and his wife Adena have been married since 2005, kindling the soul-sparks of six children out into the world during the first ten years of their marriage. The Giles family has been claimed by two dogs as their pack of humans. They’ve been restoring an 1893 Victorian home since 2011 which has also become an ongoing exercise in relational renovation.
Among Wailer’s most favorite disciplines and delights: singing, songwriting, guitar, chess, jiujitsu, Hebraic studies, writing, all things outdoors and conversations that traverse the soul. He enjoys just enough astrophysics to be pretentious about it. And he has classified desert into two categories: chocolate and everything else. Wailer enjoys cinema where the bad guys get pummeled… perhaps a little too much.
Prior to his full-time employment at Proven Ministries, Wailer spent 16 years as a craftsman in slate & metal roofing, with several of those years running his own business. His outlandish dream job for an alternate universe would be that of a sumo wrestler. However, his position as Director of Outreach has become a *very* close second. “It’s a labor, but it doesn’t feel like a job!”
Wailer grew up in the family legacy of two grandfathers and a Dad who exemplified covenant fidelity their entire married lives. Due in large part to their godly influence, he never encountered pornography in any form during his formative years and has remained free of that exposure or struggle ever since. His sons and daughters walk the same path into their teenage years. Wailer is passionate about cultivating this kind of generational inheritance among families and faith communities all over the nation; he believes this is our collective calling as children of light in a darkened world.
“The man who listens speaks to eternity…”
