After a life-changing encounter with Jesus in 1997, Nate, as a young man, hit the road with a team of young people going city to city and nation to nation, proclaiming the Gospel.

Since that time, Nate and Rute together have traveled to over 30 nations on 5 continents proclaiming and teaching the ‘Good News’ Gospel with signs and wonders following.  Their passion is to bring a message of God’s grace and love in the power of the Holy Spirit to the least reached peoples of the world.

In 2011 Nate and Rute Tanner launched L3 international with a vision to reach the world’s overlooked and forgotten people.

L3 is seeing the ‘least, the lost and the last’ impacted by the ‘Good News Gospel’ in some of the hardest to reach places.

The strategic mission of L3 can be summarized in three-words:  Equip, Activate and Proclaim

L3 also is actively involved in mercy ministries in Africa, with an orphanage in Zambia, as well as multiple programs that establish leaders in the truth of the Gospel. Every year up to 5 evangelistic campaigns are conducted. The evangelistic campaigns are the catalyst for long term work in a region. They bring local believers together to pray and share Jesus with their communities. The Home of Hope orphanage in Zambia was born out of such initiatives.

To date, Nate and Rute have been a part of leading over one-million people to faith in Jesus Christ across the world.

Their ministry organization is based out of Post Falls, Idaho where they, together with their two children (Gabriel age fourteen and Amiliya age seven), make their home.
