  • Kirk Giles


    As a member of the Promise Keepers Canada team for over 20 years, Kirk Giles has become one of Canada’s leading Christian voices on the challenges and opportunities men face. He is a leader, teacher, and a man with vision for the importance of building God’s Kingdom. His two greatest desires in ministry is to see men walk with Jesus, and to see the local church be everything Jesus dreamed it to be.

    Under Kirk’s leadership, the ministry of Promise Keepers Canada has continued to evolve in strengthening tens of thousands of men through electronic, print, and live events that ignite and equip men to have a godly impact, and through initiatives like The Fatherless Project which trains and connects men to mentor children and youth from father absent families.

    Kirk is the developer of Blueprint—a framework for the discipleship of men in the local church, and the author of The King’s Men small group studies focused on the seven promises of a promise keeper.

    In addition to his role at Promise Keepers Canada, Kirk has been actively involved in his community as a baseball coach. His greatest joy in life is his family. Kirk is married to Shannon and they have four children.
