Mustard Live Update February 2020

Jesus asks us to be like Him. Follow Him in all that we are, all that we do, and all that we say. Jesus was, is and will always be perfection and is what we as Christians strive to be. But humans are messy and complex, and we often make things harder for ourselves – well at least I do.

Mustard Live Update December 2019

Wowee! Okay, I know I have only been at Mustard for a few months but seriously, what a massive few months they have been. As 2019 is coming to a close and we are in midst of the the Christmas season, I’m finding myself reflecting on the year that’s been and the wild and exciting ride I’ve had with Mustard.

Mustard Live Update November 2019

Mindset A few weeks ago, our Mustard Live team ventured to Kilvington Grammar for a day of fun and community with the year 7s and 8s.  We started off our program with an obstacle course for three lucky student volunteers. The twist? They had to do it blindfolded! One student attempted the obstacle course by himself. Another had a peer guiding

Mustard Live Update September 2019

What is Stewardship? This is the question our Mustard Live team posed to MLC’s Year 7 and 8 students earlier in September. Mustard Live has a brand spanking new team (woohoo!), and MLC was our first time presenting all together. Our team consists of Liam Ting, technology extraordinaire; Menallie Slusher, activities guru; and me, Isabella Patane, who had the very

Mustard Live Update August 2019

I’ve had the privilege of working with Mustard since February 2016, and as August 2019 draws to a close, so too does my time here. As I think about all the things I’ve been able to put my hands to at Mustard over the years, I am extraordinarily thankful for all of the opportunities I’ve been presented with. I’m grateful

Mustard Live Update July 2019

If God Exists… My increasingly favourite way to ask students questions about faith and life is to begin with the words, “If God exists…” These kinds of questions seem to be disarming for students. Perhaps they are expecting me to assert that God does in fact exist (a fair assumption to hold; I work in schools ministry, after all), and

Mustard Live Update May 2019

In Melbourne, 17th-19th May is the Victorian Christian Youth Convention – a conference that exists to “equip young people with God’s word to impact their world”. As far as Mustard is concerned, that’s a pretty easy vision for us to get around. Over the weekend I took a team up to Belgrave Heights Convention Centre to immerse ourselves in that

Mustard Live Update April 2019

Reading the Bible can be hard. All the more so when your world moves a million miles an hour and there are countless things to distract you each day. When we read the Bible, we’re searching for a way to understand these words given to us – to comprehend its deep and profound meaning as life buzzes past us. And

Mustard Live Update February 2019

Over the past two weeks, Brenton, Liam and I have had the privilege of speaking to a bright bunch of Year 9 boys from Scotch College. We headed over Healesville for their annual retreat, running workshops and walking them through some conversations around manhood, responsibility and value. What makes a ‘good bloke’? Is it a deep voice and big muscles?

Mustard Live Update January 2019

This year I have the pleasure of being involved with the Arrow Leadership Training Program as a part of Arrow 23 cohort. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to learn again and engage with people from different church traditions, denominations and expressions. I’ll also get the opportunity this year to build Mustard’s internship program in partnership with ACOM. This is
