What’s happening at Mustard Seed Village?

Last month I shared about our partnership with Creation Care Study Program (CCSP) and our plan to launch a semester away program at the Mustard Seed Village in January 2012. This launch has been rescheduled for September 2012, a much better season to enjoy the beauty of the Pacific NW.

Pole Barn imageOur architect, David Vandervort has completed the initial drawings for the pole barn which will provide a classroom facility for students. We are inspired and excited by his creativity which has produced a unique design for this iconic structure highlighting many of the sustainable, eco-friendly building techniques that we intend to be a part of all that we do on this property.

This year we will hold our 20th annual Celtic Prayer retreat and we want to make sure that you have plenty of time to get ready for the this landmark event August 12 – 14th. We already have one participant planning to join us from England. Our theme for this year is Jubilee and New Beginnings – Launching the Mustard Seed Village.

Cindy Todd, our Strategic Development Coordinator, is working diligently on identifying and applying for grants in order to fund the beginning infrastructure and subsequent programmatic costs for Mustard Seed Village. She will be taking the MSV story” on the road” in the fall exhibiting at several conferences, like CCDA. throughout the US. If you’re attending, please plan on finding her and saying hello.

God continues to add members to our curriculum development team which is designing what we think will be an exciting opportunity for students to learn and practice sustainable faith and life. We hope to enable students to create and, possibly even launch new ways to be a difference and make a difference in God’s world.

Please pray for:

  • David Vandervort and the MSV planning team
  • Forrest Inslee, Tom Sine and our curriculum team
  • Cindy Todd as she works on grant proposals
  • MSA’s partnership with CCSP
