Blessed to be a Blessing

“But if that light is under a bushel, it’s lost something kind of crucial.” – Godspell I’m just putting it out there, I love musicals! And Godspell is definitely towards the top of the list as far as favourites go (if you haven’t heard the soundtrack, y’all should definitely check it out). It’s fun and fabulous, but more than that,

Directors Desk Sept 2018

I was recently invited to lead a session on the topic of mental health for a bunch of students. As I entered the school, I quickly noticed the splashes of yellow intermittently covering the walls and schoolyard. The student leaders had organised a school-wide event for R U OK? Day, and invited me to speak to their year 9 &

Why I’m doing SILENCE

This is my first year taking the SILENCE challenge and it will definitely, no doubt about it, absolutely be a challenge. My family and friends can testify to my love of talking and I don’t remember going five minutes in silence, let alone 24 hours! (My brother literally laughed out loud when I told him I was doing this.) But

The Benefits of Volunteering

I’ve been volunteering with Mustard for about 3 months now and I’ve had an absolute ripper of a time. But when I tell people that I volunteer for a non-profit organisation their response is usually something along the lines of “Oh wow, that must be good for the resume.” Essentially, people just want to know what I get out of

Meet James – Our new Team Member

Hey legends, My name is James, and I’m a proud Mustard volunteer and general swingman. My days at the Mustard office are rarely the same. I apply for grants, review legal documents, advise staff on policy regarding youth ministry, help with a range of other tasks as needed, and provide light-hearted entertainment when called upon! I’m currently completing a Bachelor

Directors Desk August 2018

Some of you will be aware that Tom Craven concluded his term as Board Member and Chair in June. He and his family have relocated in order for his wife, Hannah, to study at the renowned University of St. Andrews in Fife, Scotland.

From a comms and media perspective, we’ve seen an amazing amount of growth and development this year.

Student Movement Update August 2018

In 2016 we changed the role of students from followers to leaders in the Student Movement and have consequently broken new grounds in schools ministry. Now, we are looking to see what’s next for our volunteers, and are keen for a strategic shift that will no doubt bring the Student Movement to the next level. Our Mustard Student Movement has

Mustard Live Update August 2018

The best mindset I have ever learned about working with volunteers is “don’t complain about the team you don’t have, be faithful with the one you do.” I picked this up from one of my mates and it’s probably the only reason I’m able to do my job. My friend and his wife run an arts ministry that punches way
