Allegheny East Conference Mourns Pastor's Death

Story by LaTasha Hewitt

The Allegheny East Conference (AEC) family is mourning the recent death of Pastor Beverly Miles. Prior to his call to ministry, Miles served as an elder for several years at Miracle Temple Church (now Miracle City) in Baltimore, Md. He was a member of the AEC Executive Committee from 1996-2001.

Miles completed his Master of Divinity degree at Howard University in Washington, D.C., and became pastor of the Serenity church in Martinsburg, W.Va., in 2012. In January 2017, he transitioned to the Berea Temple church in Baltimore, where he served as assistant pastor.

As a trained artist, Miles had a career in art education before pastoring. Several painted murals—including at AEC’s Church of the Oranges in Orange, N.J., and Miracle City—bear his signature.

“Pastor Miles was a true team player who was warm, kind-hearted and committed to hastening the Lord’s second coming. He loved his own family as well as his church family. He will certainly be missed,” says Maurice Taylor, senior pastor of Berea.

Miles is survived by his wife, Angela, and two adult daughters, Melody Haynes (husband, Curtis) and Fayth.
