About Tommy Bates

Pastor Tommy Bates has a unique calling and gift of God to bridge the gap of separation between “that which was” and “that which is” in the full-gospel movement. God uses him mightily to preach a contemporary message with the “old time” anointing. His ministry has no social, gender, racial, or generational barriers. All who come are blessed, and his ministry becomes “bread to the eater and seed to the sower.”
