He came in as a student, and was eventually brought on staff to help lead the ministry in various ways. His main focus in his time with Patmos was teaching and discipling young adults. Tanner was also given the opportunity to do missions work in several countries, including Liberia, The Bahamas, Guatemala, El Salvador, Belize, and Nicaragua.
