A Heart for the Marginalized
In 2009, Tanner and Bethany Peake moved to Colorado Springs to join the mission of Every Home for Christ. At the time, they were a young married couple answering a call to help people genuinely encounter Jesus.
For over a decade, Tanner and Bethany served in strategic roles, investing in Every Home’s global ministry, administration, and spiritual formation. They have adapted to serve the ministry in any capacity needed and invested profoundly in every aspect and activity of Every Home.
In 2012, Tanner was appointed director of prayer mobilization, following in the footsteps of Dick Eastman. Three years later, in 2015, Tanner stepped into the role of international director. In this role, he spearheaded the launch of Every Home’s Oikos initiative, a strategic plan to reach everyone, everywhere, with the gospel within this generation. Tanner was named executive director in 2020 and helped lead the ministry through the COVID-19 pandemic. In September of 2021, at Dick’s recommendation, the board of directors approved Tanner as Dick’s successor, and in September 2022, Tanner formally succeeded Dick as president.
