My guest for this podcast is Roger Babik, CEO of Master Provisions. Master Provisions distributes goods to non-profits that help those in need.
Roger is a life-long Greater Cincinnatian, graduating from Madeira H.S. in 1975 and Milligan College (TN) in 1979. After college, he married Tanya Oakes and settled in Northern Kentucky in 1980. He was called by God to launch Master Provisions (MP) in 1994 while working in sales and marketing at Cincinnati Bell Telephone Company. Roger volunteered part-time for 2 years to manage all details of the mission startup including all administrative and operations activities. In May 1996, he ended a 17-year career in telecommunications to serve full-time at MP as President.
An ordained pastor, Roger has gifts of public speaking, serving, faith, and administration as well as creative writing. He authored a book “Call Against the Will” in 2006. Roger has led 48 international mission trips since founding MP and travels regularly to represent the mission. In addition to international outreach, MP started meeting local hunger needs in 2013 and launched a transportation social enterprise in 2015. The Babiks reside in Walton, KY, and Tanya is a collaborative special education teacher at Ryle High School. Their four children are grown and married and all reside in Northern Kentucky. Roger and Tanya attend First Church of Christ, Union campus, and became grandparents in May 2016. They have 6 grandchildren as of July 2020.
