Jones County residents have been the recipients of more than 100 roofs put on by Mustard Seed Ministries. This before picture is an example of the difference the organization has made in the quality of the lives of people whose roofs leaked and needed repair but could not afford the cost. A slide show of many of those projects is planned as part of the Feb. 24 program.

The work of one of the largest roofing organizations in Middle Georgia mostly goes unnoticed, but the founder of the ministry behind the effort is trying to change that.

Mustard Seed Ministries is planning to introduce itself to the people in Gray and Jones County who do not know what it does, Feb. 24 at 6: 45 p.m. The introduction is in the form of a gathering that ministry founder Gary Hargis hopes will fill the W.E. Knox Civic Center.

Mustard Seed Ministries is headquartered in Gordon and has been in operation for 10 years. Hargis said the ministry actually started with a church squabble. After the disagreement was over, he said he went home disgruntled with himself.

“I felt God say ‘get off your fanny and start helping someone’,” he said, and that is how it began.

Hargis said he got on his lawn mower the next day and started cutting grass for people who needed the help.

“I started working and praying, and then I got a couple of guys to help with building some ramps,” he said.
