The first report at the Jan. 27 meeting was from Gary Hargis, founder of Mustard Seed Ministries. He said the ministry did a total of $1.1 million with $700,000 in good works in Jones County in 2013. He explained that the ministry participates with whoever calls for help and it received 250 calls with needs since July 2013.
Hargis said he is from Twiggs County but feels he has been called to work in Jones County. The ministry is having a community night Feb. 24 to introduce Mustard Seed to those who do not know what the ministry does.
“It’s about the community. I’d like to see us pull all the 501(c)3s together and see what we can do. It would be a wonderful thing,” he said.
Carr said Family Connection worked with Mustard Seed and submitted seven projects with Tri-County. She said all were funded and Hargis said four already have been completed.
