The Team

Tim Barker
Tim Barker

After traveling around the world, God gave Tim a heart for helping people, Tim discovered research showing that only less than 1% of worldwide Christian giving is used to help the poorest, lost people. He also discovered that this is where the greatest lasting impact per dollar was being made. Tim became passionate about sharing this information and thus began ROI Ministry. As the founder of ROI, he represents the ministry to individuals and organizations, provides leadership to the board, and continues to carry out the mission and vision of ROI Ministry. He spends the rest of his time working as a Decommissioning Program Director for AECOM, one of the largest engineering construction firms in the world.
