Carl & Maya Gilles

Carl and Maya Gilles served with Global Partners in Haiti since 2009. In 2015 Carl was appointed as the Haiti Mission Director.

Their main emphasis was to equip children’s workers, youth leaders, and pastors to be effective in their ministries, so they could impact their families, communities, country, and the world for Jesus Christ. They also have a passion to see Haitian missionaries go to other French-speaking countries.

In 2019 Carl and Maya Gilles transitioned into a new season of ministry that builds on the 10 years of work they have done to equip church leaders in Haiti. Their ministry has been expanded to include other French-speaking countries in critical need of increased mission engagement. Their role as Francophone Ministries Facilitators opens long-awaited possibilities for expanding the missional capacity and activity of the Global Wesleyan Church. They are currently based in French-speaking Quebec City, Canada, with the potential relocation partway through their term to another French-speaking country.
