Rolland Baker, DMin, began Iris Global in 1980 with his wife Heidi, and has been a missionary for more than thirty years. Since 1995 they have seen a miraculous people movement spread across Mozambique, once one of the poorest and most war-torn countries in the world. Greatly influenced by his grandfather’s experience of revival among poor orphans in China, his ministry emphasizes immediate intimacy with Jesus, a life of utterly-needed miracles, concentration on the poor and lowly, willingness to suffer for love’s sake, and the unquenchable joy of the Lord. He combines a rich background in theological education with practical experience imparting the love of God and the joy of His Presence wherever he goes. Relationship with Jesus is at the heart of all the Bakers have experienced. Iris Global now has bases in countries around the world that carry its core values with power and simplicity. He is the author of Keeping The Fire: Sustaining Revival through Love: The Five Core Values of IRIS Global (River Publishing, 2015) and co-author with his wife, Heidi, of Reckless Devotion: 365 Days into the Heart of Radical Love (Chosen, 2014), Learning to Love: Passion, Compassion and the Essence of the Gospel (Chosen, 2013), Expecting Miracles: True Stories of God's Supernatural Power and How You Can Experience It (Chosen, 2007), and Always Enough: God's Miraculous Provision among the Poorest Children on Earth (Chosen, 2003).
