In the earlier years of life, Tanya was involved in church planting throughout Southeast Asia. She then spent the next few decades raising a large family and serving in local church bodies with her husband, Brett, while also pouring into the lives of students through private, Christian educational institutions. Now that the nest is somewhat empty, she is excited to once again partner with church planters as part of their support team. Tanya has a deep love for studying the Scriptures and helping others apply them to everyday living.  In her free time you will find her hiking through a forest, admiring all that the God she loves and serves created.
