FCC Board of Directors
The national FCC organization operates under a board of Directors made up of men and women from various walks of life. The Board of Directors meet four times a year coming from all parts of the U.S. They join together in prayer for this ministry and for God’s direction.
President and Chaplain
Buddy Strachan is originally from Elizabeth, Colorado and now lives in Elbert with his wife Kristi and their two daughters. He has been ranching and competing in rodeos since the age of nine. Originally a part of the HIS Outfit Chapter, he got heavily involved with the Fellowship of Christian Cowboys as a Chaplain and then later a board member. He has been involved in the ministry for about 15 years now and says, “FCC is important because of the outreach to the western world, through youth, rodeos and livestock shows. I remember carrying the FCC banner in high school rodeos when I competed, and hopefully we can help others to follow Christ and His ways instead of the world.
Chairman of the Board
Charles Robert “Bob” Devine is originally from Houston, Texas and now lives with his wife in Flatonia, Texas. He serves on the Board of Directors for FCC as the Chairman of the Board. He says, “I know that FCC is important for numerous reasons such as the fact that the only time some people ever go to church is to our services. We are able to introduce young people to Jesus Christ through church services. We are also able to get our, “The Way for Cowboy” bibles in the hands of youth, and to people all over the world.
A few folks local to Elbert County had been left without a church service at our county fair. FCC sent someone to conduct a service. We talked to a few folks about starting a local chapter. His Outfit was started and I served with others at the local level. My wife Helen and I started serving at some national events also. In October of 2018 I was asked to consider being on the board of directors. After much prayer and thought I accepted in January of 2019. The board has a commitment of standing firm on the foundation of the truth of scripture. Our greatest need as humans is God’s forgiveness. That is God’s message, God’s gospel, “the good news.” God Himself has provided all that we need in the person and work of Christ Jesus. God’s message has been softened or abandoned considerably in our day and time.
