The Central Oregon Fellowship of Christian Athletes leadership board is committed to advancing the mission of FCA "to lead every coach and athlete into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and His church", and to fulfilling the vision of "seeing the world transformed by Jesus through the influence of coaches and athletes", throughout all of Central Oregon from the Columbia river to the California boarder.
Brian See, our Board Chairman.
Currently my day job is Worship / Young Adults Pastor at New Hope Church in Bend. Other kingdom positions I have served in are as a Youth Pastor for 9 years, Christian youth camp director for 5 years, and worship leader now for 10+ years.
I grew up in Oregon City where I competed in swimming and track and field as a pole vaulter in high school, and continued in college with pole vault and javelin at George Fox University. Sports have played a huge role in my life! It has taught me the value of discipline, goals, and using our strengths, and weaknesses to God’s glory. I can’t think of a day where I haven’t employed my experiences as an athlete in the area of business, personal, or spiritual life!
My involvement with FCA started when I was a youth pastor in Oregon City at Oregon City Evangelical church. I was also coaching varsity swimming at Oregon City High. FCA provided a great way to get involved and connect to student/athletes, and to disciple them in their walk with Jesus as a Huddle Coach. FCA holds a special place in my heart because of it’s ability to rally students from different churches: empowering them to be witnesses on the fields, and on the courts (or in the pool) to sharpen one another, is unparalleled.
I believe in the marriage of ministry and athletics and am so blessed to serve in this iconic ministry!
Our Board Secretary, Linda Hutchins
I am relatively new to sunny Central Oregon, having moved here in 2016. I grew up in the Mid-Willamette valley near the towns of Lebanon and Sweet Home. I guess you could say I enjoy being a small-town girl and the lifestyle living in the country has to offer. Living there I had the opportunity to attend a small private Christian school where I learned the importance of relational community through Christ in academics as well as athletics. I was active in basketball and track and always enjoyed the opportunity to compete.
I attend Powell Butte Christian Church and love the relationships that are made in this amazing church. I have two amazing kids that love Jesus, and I feel so blessed to be their mom. I am currently employed by the Crook County School District as a State Reporter and Data Specialist for our student information system. I enjoy many outdoor activities, as well as furniture restoration, Christmas wreath making, and crafting.
Out of a sincere love for people, I am excited to engage with Central Oregon Fellowship of Christian Athletes as a board member, and through the many opportunities to serve God’s kingdom that this ministry provides. I am so passionate about the ability for coaches and athletes to be supported in Christ through this organization and to touch many lives through this amazing ministry and the people with whom I serve.
TJ and Shasta Ramoss
Both born and raised in Central Oregon. We were high school sweethearts that recently celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary. We actively attend Shiloh Ranch Church in Powell Butte.
We were both very active in middle school and high school sports and love competition. We have always been active and enjoy camping, hunting, and following our children around to their various activities. Our two high school-aged girls keep us busy with volleyball, cross country, basketball, track, and 4-H/FFA events.
We first became aware of FCA as our oldest became actively involved in leading the FCA huddle at her school. It was through the spiritual growth we witnessed in her that led us to get involved with the ministry leadership board. We are excited at the opportunity to join the Central Oregon FCA board to help use this platform of encouraging coaches and athletes to promote the Kingdom of God. It’s an exciting time to see where God takes this ministry and see His impact on many lives.
