Vicar Hiles hails from Carlyle, Illinois, a small town in Southern Illinois just an hour east of St. Louis, Missouri. After working for a Verizon retailer for a number of years, he finished his bachelor degree at Concordia University Nebraska, where he received his degree in Strategic Communications and Pre-Seminary. He attends Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and is blessed to be on his vicarage this third year at both Historic Trinity, and daughter congregation St. Paul, in Royal Oak. In his free time, he enjoys delving deeper into theology, playing guitar, working on his PC (even though he has absolutely no time for it), and relaxing in any bit of nature he can find.
