Tanner has served as our Youth Pastor for the last few years, beginning as the Sports Camp Director in 2017. When referring to his students, he prides himself in being undefeated in ping-pong, and protecting them from tornados. Tanner and his wife, Sydney, have their own zoo which consists of: a dog, two cats, and 20 fish. When not with his students, Tanner enjoys the finer things in life like: long walks on the beach, mountain biking, a good meme, and the Arby’s dollar menu.
“I think, more than anything, a loving community has the potential to be a beautiful extension of God’s grace and profound love. In a community, we get the chance to affirm to ourselves and to one another that all people are made in the image of God, and are worthy of being in relationship with his son.”
