Tim & Janet Roberts
Ethnos360 - USA
Tim and Janet ministered for 26 years, helping plant a church among the Western Tarahumara people in the Sierra Madre Mountains of Mexico. Their church planting ministry included evangelism, Bible lesson preparation, translation, teaching and discipleship in the Tarahumara language. They also prepared literacy materials, taught literacy and did Bible translation checking. Along with these responsibilities came many community development projects and medical services. Tim and Janet Roberts’ lives have come full circle. In 1984 they decided to become missionaries after attending a mission conference where they learned of unreached people groups all over the world. In 2016, having taken the gospel to one of those groups, they circled back to the US and began passing the challenge of missions on to the next generation. Tim and Janet now serve at the Missionary Training Center of Ethnos360 in Roach, MO. Tim delights in sharing the challenges and rewards of seeing a previously unreached people group come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. He loves sharing the opportunities and needs of cross-cultural church planting that still exist among the least-reached people groups of the world. The Roberts have three grown children and 11 grandchildren.
