We are a Movement

Mustard is a Christian ministry who exist to empower young people to be fully alive forever.

“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.” – Matthew 13:31-32

Mustard prioritises the empowerment of students, encouraging them to take maximum ownership over their spiritual formation. As school is the place they spend most of their time, we think engaging with God and other Christians at school is important to developing a holistic faith.

To that end we partner with independent schools to provide Mustard Live events. We also offer leadership support, mentors, training, resources, and encouragement to Christian students connected to the Mustard Student Movement.
