James Bates, B.A., ICADC, ICCJP, CJC

“I have worked in the field of addiction for over 8 years with most of my counseling done with the Adolescent population.  I started working at MFH in 2003 until 2006 and stopped to further my education in Theology and Leadership.  I received my B.A. from the Philadelphia Biblical University and was awarded the “Who’s Who Award of 2008”.  In addition I have worked with youths at a New Jersey State Department of Corrections facility in a Therapeutic Community.  I love being back at My Father’s House and look forward to continue to give back what God has given to me.”

James is the primary counselor for the adolescent groups
