About Us

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 unconditional 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 compassion ministries in Africa.  These include the ‘Home of Hope’ orphanage, the ‘Hope Christian Academy’ school, and ‘the farm project.’ It also has started multiple programs and bible schools to help establish leaders in the truth of the Gospel. 

Each year L3 conducts community wide campaigns to reach the lost and to make disciples. 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. To date, these outreaches have resulted in leading over one-million people to faith in Jesus Christ across the world.

Our goal is to leave a long-term sustainable impact in the regions where we minister by holding conferences, opening bibles schools, and providing resources for Christian leaders and believers.

Some of the most impactful and far reaching work includes the church planting and mobile bible schools that we conduct in remote villages in Africa. In Asia, programs are in place providing sound systems and training to evangelists working among the unreached. 

Mission Trips

Up to 3 mission trips are organized annually, taking teams into the some of the world’s least reached areas. Team members will be trained and equipped to do the works of Jesus by sharing the Gospel, healing the sick and extending the love of God to the hurting and broken. The most common testimony to come from those who participate is, “my life will never be the same.”

Home of Hope Zambia

Launched in 2012, Home of Hope is rescuing children from poverty and almost certain abandonment and even death. The home is designed to be a catalyst for comprehensive life-change for children. 

Working holistically in both scope and outreach, we seek to make a measurable difference by meeting the physical and spiritual needs of these children.
