Mustard Tree Ministries exists to be a ministry that helps people become all that God wants them to be. Thus we call ourselves Mustard "Tree" not Mustard "Seed." In Matthew's Gospel Jesus says the Kingdom of God is like a Mustard seed, and when it grows up it becomes the largest tree where "all" birds can come." Jesus looked at what we can become when we are reconciled to God and growing in his Kingdom. Our main goal is to reconcile people to God through Christ and then to family (if they have any) and to community. We want a holistic ministry. In the past seven years we have helped 300 people get off the street and reconnected with God, family, and the community.

2. Each Thursday evening, we offer a free dinner and Bible Study at First Baptist Church in downtown Chattanooga.
3. Each Sunday evening, we offer a free dinner and worship at First-Centenary called, Breakthrough Worship from 5-6:30 p.m. in The Vine.
