Tan, Fernando & Genelie

Serving the Lord with Teen Missions in the Philippines


Meet the Tans

Fernando Tan went on his first Teen Missions team in 1990.  He loved the idea of Teen Missions and eagerly dedicated his summers to serving on more summer teams.   Two years later he met a young woman named Genelie and fell in love.  He told her that once they got married, he would still commit his summers to Teen Missions.  In 1999 staff from Teen Missions Florida came to run the annual Boot Camp and purchase land for a permanent Teen Missions base.  Fernando and Genelie assisted with choosing the property and, after much prayer, decided work with Teen Missions fulltime.  The Tans – as well as several other volunteers – helped build up the new Teen Missions property.  They had many challenging experiences, including sleeping in tents for five months until the first staff house was completed.  Over the years the base has grown and flourished and today they not only run a summer Boot Camp but they also coordinate a BIBLE, MISSIONARY & WORK (BMW) Training Center and operate a flourishing retreat center. The Tan’s have three wonderful children: Reuel, Steph, n and Keziah.
