Cody Bates currently resides in Kelowna, British Columbia and is the lead Evangelist for Okanagan Men’s Centre (OMC), which is affiliated with Adult and Teen Challenge of BC. Cody is the founder and director of The Avery Projects, which are charitable projects aimed at closing the addiction help-delivery gap… decreasing the time it actually takes for someone to get the life-saving help they need.
Cody’s passion for recovery from addiction is second only to his passion for serving the Lord. When he’s not traveling for speaking engagements or leading teams onto the streets to evangelize, Cody can be found at the OMC, which he calls home and where he encourages students in their day-to-day struggles or spending time with his dog, Princess Aya. Watch out for Cody’s second book, My Fathers Pupil due in late 2019.
