Myles founded the first GMI (Grace Ministries International) church in Wharton, Texas in 1991. His main focus is building the GMI churches through building its leadership. He also travels nationally and internationally, as the main mission thrust of GMI. Myles’ ability to grasp Biblical principles and transfer them in a practical, motivating, and challenging way is one of the reasons he is a sought-after teacher and mentor. He is a spiritual father and pastor to pastors around the world, equipping them to be effective in their call and ministry.
Many of these pastors pushed him to develop training for parents, after seeing his children so devoted to God and God’s call on their lives. This became the “Kingdom Families” teaching which has been used by hundreds of churches in the U.S., and has been translated into various languages in Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas. Myles has also developed a number of other training materials and training weekends that are being used nationally and internationally by churches and church networks.
Myles and his wife, Sallie, have been married 37 years, and she is the love of his life. He has five children, all actively serving the Lord, and five grandchildren.
