Mark and Tina Rollins founded Christ for Humanity after witnessing the overwhelming need of the indigenous people in the Sierra Madre Mountains of northern Mexico. As Christians, they believe God desires His children to show the compassion of Christ to the poor by meeting both physical and spiritual needs. From one small step of faith in 1990, the Rollins’ have seen God grow Christ for Humanity into an international ministry touching bodies and souls in 50+ countries.
James 2: 14-16 Suppose a brother or sister is without clothing or daily food. If one of you says to him, “Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it?”
Camille began volunteering at Christ for Humanity in 1992. When the ministry moved to its current location, Camille came on staff, using her gift of encouragement to bless the ministries and missionaries CFH serves locally and internationally. Since 2004, Camille has served as office administrator, handling the day-to-day operation of Christ for Humanity, including the oversight of CFH’s staff and many faithful volunteers. Apart from her regular duties, Camille teaches two Bible studies a week: to a women’s prison ministry and to a class of elderly women.
Romans 11:36 For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen.
Bob joined CFH in 2006, becoming the ministry’s Director of Local Outreach. A Christian since 1972, Bob was called to ministry in 1991, becoming music minister at Eastside Baptist Church in Collinsville, Oklahoma. His desire to serve God in other capacities led Bob to join the Christ for Humanity team, where as Local Outreach Director he immediately began growing the ministry’s Adopt-a-Facility and 1st Step programs outreaches to local poor designed to disciple and develop new believers.
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans that I have for you” declares the LORD, “plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.”
After visiting The Gambia, West Africa, in 1999, Ronda felt challenged to involve African American churches in international ministry. In 2001 Ronda joined Christ for Humanity, arranging numerous short-term mission trips to The Gambia, primarily for African American believers, and raising financial support for the indigenous Christian church, serving in The Gambia, Sierra Leon, and Guinea Bissau. Ronda helped mobilize the African American community through international mission conferences in which indigenous pastors spoke of the need for involvement from black churches in America. As Director of Global Missions, Ronda also supervises other CFH international projects most recently the Haiti relief effort.

Jan Hendrix-Hood, Office Manager
Jan began volunteering at Christ for Humanity in 2001, when her husband Jim became the ministry’s Warehouse Manager. After Jim’s death in 2007, Jan came on staff as Office Manager, using her skills as a former purchasing agent for a fast food business to order all of CFH’s commodities from the Northeastern Oklahoma Food Bank. Jan manages the front office, making all appointments for clients seeking help directly from the ministry. She is the first person to greet clients, and her loving attitude sets everyone at ease. When not at her desk, Jan is helping volunteers in the clothing room or with other ministry programs.

Lena Gregg, International Shipping Consultant
After marrying CFH missionary to St. Petersburg Steve Gregg in 1999, Lena became integral to Christ for Humanity’s shipping program to the former Soviet Union. As a Russian national, Lena was able to navigate the minefield of Russian red tape, enabling CFH to become one of the top shippers of humanitarian aid under the U.S. State Department’s Project Support Freedom program during the late 1990’s and early 2,000’s. Though shipping under the government’s program has decreased in recent years, Lena, now an American citizen, still arranges the shipment of several containers a year for CFH and facilitates aid shipment for other ministries.

At a very early age, Randy gave his heart to Jesus. A short time later he decided that he wanted to be in the Ministry. At age 11, he gave his first sermon. He went on to get a BA degree in theology. He loves teaching, singing, and sharing his faith with others. As Warehouse Manager at Christ for Humanity, he now has opportunity to serve God by helping people with their physical needs and their spiritual needs as well.
Currently, Randy leads a Bible study at a nursing home in Tulsa.
Matthew 6:23 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Board of Directors
Mark Rollins Founder and President (retired)
How has such a small, humanitarian aid based ministry, with very limited paid Staff, left such a large footprint for God’s Kingdom in Tulsa, and across the world? Quite frankly, the “engine” that actually propels the CFH ministry “machine” are our faithful, and almost always “behind-the-scenes” volunteers. Without the huge contribution to both the capabilities and capacity of CFH ministry horsepower added by this diverse group, Christ for Humanity would simply not exist as it does today. From every Youth Group and children’s Sunday School class that has ever packed a food box, to our Golden Years “regulars” that faithfully manage our pharmacy, or our clothes closet, or teach a First-Steps class each and every week, the head-count (if available) of volunteers that have ever participated in a CFH-sponsored ministry would certainly number in the hundreds…if not the thousands.
Matthew 25:35-36 “For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me drink; I was a stranger, and you invited me in; naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.”
