Tami has been attending Grace Bible Church since 1990. She has been married to her husband Rich McFate since 1991 and they have three amazing children. The oldest, Daylor, is married to Katie and they are living in Kalispell. Katie is on staff with Inter Varsity Christian Fellowship on the Flathead Community College Campus. Daylor owns his own piano tuning business. They also made Tami and Rich grandparents to Rebecca, their first grandchild. Tami's daughters, KayLee and Maygan both live in Laurel and attend GBC.
For 25 years, Rich & Tami owned and managed two seasonal businesses. These businesses allowed Tami to be a stay at home mom full time while their children were growing up. She's excited to now have the opportunity to serve the church body in a staff position.
Tami has been involved in many areas of ministry over the years. Head of the nursery and
pre-school ministry, 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 in our community who do not know Him yet.
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!
