Bob is a native Montanan who was raised in Helena, Montana.  A thirty year career in the golf business allowed Bob to live in Bigfork, Missoula and Southern California.  In 2009, Bob and his wife Debbie felt a call to come back home to Montana.  After much prayer and research Bob was led to move back to Helena to help restart the FCA Huddle programs in Western Montana.  

While fundraising in early 2011 to come on staff, Bob was asked to operate Wilderness Golf Club in Eureka, Montana for the 2011 and 2012 golf seasons.  As fundraising gained momentum Bob was asked to come on staff with FCA full time as the FCA State Director.  

Bob's contacts, travels and much prayer has seen FCA grow from 6 certified school Huddles to over 25 in the past 2 years, with growth targeted to be over 40 by the end of the 2015 school season.

Bob was recently certified to be a 3 Dimensional Coach Presenter.  Bob's passion as a teacher is fully accessed with the 3D Coaching program, teaching coaches how to coach.

Bob, and wife Debbie have been married for over 30 years and have three wonderful children, Paull, Maggie and son-in-law Tyler Kirk and their first grandchild Landrie Grace was born May of 2015.

Tyler Kechely

 Tyler Kechely was born in Helena, MT and he moved to Oregon to be near his mother for Junior High and High School.  It was there that he did he give his life to the Lord his Freshman year in High School, but as an a three sport athlete, got introduced to Fellowship of Christian Athletes.   He helped build a huddle at his high school his Sophomore thru Senior Year.   He was also a finalist for the FCA Athlete of the year.
After competing in football, basketball and track, he decided to put his focus on football going to college.  He passed up a full ride to the University of Montana to play for legendary coach Frosty Westering at Pacfic Lutheran University, ending his career helping the team win a Division III National Championship.  During his Junior year in school he started up a huddle at PLU and helped other athletes learn and grow in playing "through" Christ.
A few years after graduating PLU, he went on staff with FCA as the South Puget Sound Area director.   After his dad passed away, he moved back to Helena to be with his family and gave up the opportunity to do ministry with FCA.

He now lives in Bozeman, MT with his beautiful wife Wendy and two girls, Maddie and Cailin.

 "I have missed being around FCA in that same capacity for a while now.   I feel called to get things going here in Bozeman again since FCA hasn't had a real strong presence for a while now.   I truly feel like the Gallatin Valley deserves to have a partner in FCA.   We aren't here to plant our flag, but simply to meet a need with coaches and athletes that is needed in any community.  But I also think, FCA can have a bigger impact in this community, than just sports.   Our young people are starving for good role models and have challenges that we never had growing up because of technology and I feel like FCA can have an impact of multiplication through sports.   We need to partner with the churches, other para church ministries to help those that know Christ grow, and those that don't, see the power of having Jesus in their lives, and how that can change everything for them."
