Church Services & Ministries

Mustard Tree’s overall objective has always been and is to provide everyone in our community an opportunity to enjoy life and enjoy it more abundantly. We design our programs and services to address the needs of those in society by engaging community development in the presence of Christ. Since our beginnings at Forrest Avenue, we have always been a place where those experiencing homelessness can come and find refuge and direction on a daily basis.
