What We Do

To serve the poor, the destitute, the lost, and the forgotten

Iris' Projects

Most of Iris Global’s ministry takes place among the underserved, the destitute, the lost, the broken, and the forgotten. We are driven to see every man, woman, and child know the love of the Father and by providing resources to feast on the very Word of God in their own language, we see extraordinary growth in their faith.

For more information please view the most recent annual report.

Iris Global is empowered by the presence of God the Father, the Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit to stop for the one in need through adoration, outreach, family, education, relief, development, healing, and the arts.

In Iris, we pursue practical and tangible means of satisfying physical needs for the ultimate goal of spiritual transformation. All of our development programs seek to alleviate suffering in the lives of those we serve and continually point to Jesus as the source of abundant life.

We follow Jesus’ admonition to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and give water to the thirsty. We know transformation takes time and one of our Irisisms is “to go low and slow.” Our development projects start where our relief programs end. Iris is investing in the long-term success of the communities we serve, and we work closely with them to empower their transformation.

Our approach to sickness and health allows us to use both supernatural and natural prescriptions. When an ill person is en-countered on outreach or through one of our 8 Health Centers we always pray for them knowing God is our healer and His miracles point people to Him. Iris has seen thousands of people miraculously healed with deaf ears being opened, blind eyes seeing, malaria vanishing, and more.

Stop for the One was birthed in Rolland and Heidi's heart years ago. When God gave Heidi a vision of millions of faces in need of the love of God, she was undone. But the only way to stop for millions is one by one.
