If the date(s) requested work with Pastor Bates’ schedule, a confirmation email will be sent. Please note that Pastor Bates is not able to fill all requests; our office receives hundreds of requests a year. Please remember that Pastor Bates is a full-time senior pastor who evangelizes when he is able. Let us also make clear that in most church settings (especially in the southern regions of the US), we kindly ask a seating capacity of at least 500 people. This is due to the fact that there have been many times the people could not fit in the building. Pastor Bates wants everyone to be welcome and enough room to accommodate them. Please make note of the following requests:

  • Coach airfare for two people from Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky (CVG) to the commercial airport closest to your location unless ground transportation is used. On some occasions, Pastor Bates will come by himself, so he will only need 1 ticket. Our office will make the arrangements and send them over for a reimbursement.
  • We will need two king n/s hotel rooms. If Pastor Bates comes by himself, we will only need 1 king n/s hotel room.
  • We will need pickup and drop off at the airport unless a rental car is used.
  • Pastor Bates will need two tables placed in a high-traffic area for his music and preaching products. We will need two volunteers to help run the table. The product is sent prior to the event.
  • Pastor Bates will need a private facility to change clothes after church.
  • Please provide a copy of the audio CD and DVD (DVC CAM/PRO if available) of the service(s).
  • Pastor Bates does not set a certain amount for an offering nor are there any contracts to sign. However, we ask that you do your best so Pastor Bates’ ministry may grow to reach more people for Christ, especially through his television program. It may be appropriate for Pastor Bates to let the congregation know about TBM’s ministry projects and/or receive an offering for the ministry.
