Mark Rollins, founder of Christ for Humanity in Tulsa, passed away Sunday.
A memorial service is planned for Fellowship Bible Church, 5434 E. 91st St., at 10 a.m. on February 25.
The 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 believed 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.
“Mark Rollins was a true friend and believer in Jesus Christ,” said Charles Biggs, publisher of the Tulsa Beacon. “Through his health struggles, he was a constant encourager of the Tulsa Beacon. His impact will go on because of his faithful work with Christ for Humanity.”
Mark Rollins is survived by Christina Rollins (Tina), acting director of Christ for Humanity.
The Christ for Humanity website lists this Bible verse:
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?”
