I have been attending Grace Bible Church for 27 years.  I have been married for 26 years to Rich McFate and we have three amazing children.  Our oldest, Daylor, was married last summer to Katie and they are on staff with Inter Varsity Christian Fellowship.  Our second child, KayLee recently graduated from MSUB with a degree in General Business and our youngest, Maygan, recently graduated from LHS.  The girls live with us at this time and are currently working at Alpha Omega Restoration.

For the past 24 years, we have owned and managed two seasonal businesses which allowed me to be a stay at home mom full time while my children were growing up.  With our move last year, we now have only our fireworks business for a couple of weeks in the summer.  I'm excited because I now have the opportunity and availability to serve our church body in a staff position.

I have been involved in many areas of ministry over the years.  I oversaw the nursery and pre-school ministry for a time.  I have and continue to be a Sunday School teacher.  My husband and I did youth ministry here for eight years.  I have been actively involved in the Women's ministries as well.  My heart is to see the church work together as God intended it to.  I love to help put people and plans together to make ministry happen smoothly and effectively.  I am passionate about the importance of plugging in to the church and using the gifts that God has given us to serve His people and those who do not know Him yet in our community. 

Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or ideas that you have.  If I don't know the answer, I will do my best to find it.  It's a priveledge to be part of a loving family of believers and to have a job that lets me do what I love every day!
