Tanner Payne

Position: Senior Pastor
Tanner Payne grew up in South Florida. He became a Christian at age 25 at Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale, where he continued to serve and get involved. He entered a ministry of Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale called Calvary House where He gained a passion and desire for the Lord, His Word, and His people.

In August of 2012, after a year in Calvary House, Tanner was led to a ministry called Patmos: Reality Discipleship, which is led by Pastor Chet Lowe. 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.

It was through the ministry of Patmos: Reality Discipleship that Tanner was able to meet his beautiful wife Elisabeth. They married June 14, 2015 after serving two Patmos terms in El Salvador. In August of 2015, Tanner, Elisabeth and the ministry of Patmos: Reality Discipleship was called out to start a Patmos school of discipleship in Green Valley Lake, CA. Many doors opened for him with various ministries in CA, including serving with Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, Calvary Chapel South Bay, and teaching at Calvary Chapel Bible College in Murrieta. After serving two Patmos terms in CA, Tanner and Elisabeth were called to the ministry of Calvary Chapel Running Springs where he took over as the senior pastor in July 2016.

Tanner is known for his in-depth, passionate and challenging teaching style as well as a heart for discipleship, and seeking and finding the lost.
