Elijah Tanner

Elijah Tanner is a Project Specialist for BCHP's Criminal Justice projects. He received his bachelors degree from Baylor and his MBA and MDiv degrees from Baylor's Hankamer School of Business and George W. Truett Theological Seminary in 2021. Between his undergraduate and graduate work, he held positions in the Provost's and President's offices at Baylor. He is a Baylor Bear through and through. 

Elijah's undergraduate work was in Philosophy and Chinese, which gave him a wide range of understanding how people from diverse backgrounds think. He pursued his graduate degrees in business and ministry based on his desire to develop community and to help non-profits find efficient models that center on the individual, even as they scale up to serve large groups of people. Elijah has been married for four years and welcomed his first child in December, 2020. He enjoys soccer, reading, running, and anything related to the Marvel Universe. 

Elijah's passion for BCHP's Criminal Justice projects and his drive to pursue an MBA are connected. He loves helping good intentions become good business, and cares deeply about the pursuit of justice. Elijah is excited to see new programs grow and finding efficient and effective ways to serve others.
