Myles Martin

Children's Ministries Director

Myles Martin was born in Colorado, where his parents were faithful members of a Baptist church. He had the privilege of growing up in a home influenced by godliness, and as a result, made a profession of faith as a 4-year-old. However, he struggled with assurance during much of his childhood, and did not settle the matter of his salvation until the age of 16, during a teen activity. God made it clear to Myles in the next few years that he was to serve in full time ministry. Upon graduating high school, he attended Heartland Baptist Bible College in the fall of 2015. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in 2019 and stayed an additional year to complete some classes in the master’s program. During the summer breaks, he had the opportunity to intern at several different churches. He also had the privilege of working at Southwest Baptist Church in Oklahoma City, OK for the last 3 years of his college education. In October of 2018, God brought a young lady into his life, and Myles and Abigail were married in May of 2020. In June, the Lord moved them to Phoenix to begin serving at Cornerstone Baptist Church.
His life verse is Jeremiah 33:3, “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”
