Bates served as a church planter and preaching minister at Blackstone Valley Church of Christ in Cumberland, RI. He and his wife Janet are currently on the shepherding team at The Feast Church in Providence.

Bates commented on his new role, saying, “I am deeply honored to continue advancing our mission of starting new churches in new places to find the

beloved of God that he will make new! We are all writing a fresh chapter in the history of our fellowship.  I truly believe we are on the verge of a new season where many will be asking the deepest questions and looking for a life that truly works. Kairos’s goal is to partner boldly in order to bring in this new harvest.

No One Plants Alone!

The Kairos approach to church planting is deeply relational, individualized and nurturing, with a focus on developing leaders to tap into their gifts and the unique needs of each community.

We will guide you, pray with you, and walk beside you through your entire journey as you LEAD, PLANT, and GROW.
