Ron & Ava Bates

Founding and Senior Pastors


My wife, Ava, and I have been married since 1984 and are blessed with two children, Ryan and Hannah. 

We have served in church staff ministry positions since 1987 with two different churches (each assignment approximately 9 years) in the North Houston area. In January 2006, we took the step of faith to start a new work by answering the call of God to pastor in Willis, Texas, and The Light Community Fellowship was born!

We count it a privilege to be able to serve people and shine the light of God's love, salvation and power. It is our prayer that everyone in our community has an opportunity to walk in the light (the knowledge of God) and enter into fellowship with God. At The Light, it is our goal to continually add new ministries and outreaches in order to create more opportunities for you and your family to get involved. Please accept our invitation to visit The Light and enter into fellowship with Him.



Shining His Light,
Ron & Ava Bates
