Heidi Baker is a missionary and co-founder of IRIS Ministries and the author of several books. With her husband Rolland, Heidi founded IRIS Ministries in 1980, a non-profit christian ministry dedicated to Jesus and service, especially among the poor. After 12 years ministering in Asia, they left in 1992 to do their PhD’s at King’s College London, UK. In 1995 they started a new ministry to the poor and homeless children in Mozambique.

“We must give up all that we are in order to possess all that He is” – Heidi Baker

Beginning with nothing, within a matter of months they were given a dilapidated orphanage in Maputo with 80 children. From there, the ministry expanded to include well-drilling, free health clinics that service the poor and sick, feeding programs, primary and secondary schools, cottage industries and 5000 churches in Mozambique and a total of over 8,000 churches in over 20 nations.

There are multiple ‘bases’ with Bible schools, as well as community outreaches and top-ranked public schools. In Sept 2008 Iris Ministries started a well digging project in Northern Mozambique.

Their ministry is known for its reports of remarkable miracles, and multiplication of food, raising of the dead and the healing of the deaf. Their bible school in Pemba, Harvest Bible School, is now one of the most sought after bible schools in the world. Within 24 hours of registration opening, more than 600 applications would be received–3 times more than the spaces available.

Iris Ministries is certainly one of the most effective and revolutionary ministries impacting the world today.
