Over 35 Years of Growing Hope
The Mustard Seed has been serving people experiencing poverty and homelessness in Alberta since the ‘80s. It has become a haven for those needing help, which is offered through open hands with unconditional love.
The Mustard Seed is a the Laugh for Life® Gala charity that has received donations for many years. The Mustard Seed tackles poverty in greater Edmonton through the building of a healthy community. The Mustard Seed is called to bring people into relationship with God and each other and accomplish this by partnering with the wider community to serve needs and develop gifts of people affected by their circumstances. Through partnerships we are changing the face of poverty together!
The growth of The Mustard Seed has been much like the Bible, where Jesus tells the parable of the mustard seed.
“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field: it is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.” – Matthew 13:31-32
