Tami has been attending Grace Bible Church since 1990. She has been married to Rich McFate since 1991 and they have three amazing children. The oldest, Daylor, is married to Katie and they are living in Kalispell. They are on staff with Inter Varsity Christian Fellowship on the Flathead Community College Campus. Their daughters, KayLee and Maygan are both working at Alpha Omega Disaster Restoration. They both live in Laurel and attend GBC.
For 25 years, Rich & Tami owned and managed two seasonal businesses. They no longer have their Christmas business, but continue to sell fireworks in the summer. These businesses allowed Tami to be a stay at home mom full time while their children were growing up. It's exciting to now have the opportunity to serve our church body in a staff position because of the recent life changes we have made.
Tami has been involved in many areas of ministry over the years. The nursery and pre-school ministry head for a time, Sunday School teacher, youth ministry for eight years, and Women's ministry as well. Her heart is to see the church work together as God intended it to. She loves to help put people and plans together to make ministry happen smoothly and effectively. She's 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 Tami with any questions or ideas that you have. She considers it a privilege to be part of a loving family of believers and to have a job that lets her do what she loves every day!
