April Bates

April Bates profile photo


“April carries the compassion and radiance of the Holy Spirit. She is bubbly and is often the first to cry as she listens as you share the journey Jesus has you on. She is full of faith and has an inward stillness like Mary, who waited at Jesus’ feet. She loves and champions Jesus’ heart to elevate women who carry a calling and commitment to give Jesus everything. She honours Jesus’ voice and can pull you into His heart without you seeing it coming. The enemy is afraid of April because her humility and meekness flow from His very presence in her. She can light up the darkness with her smile while preparing us to dwell in the secret place as trials come. April Bates is married to Brad Bates, and they live in Vancouver, BC.”
