Faith of a Mustard Seed Ministry Logo

Our Mission

Faith of a Mustard Seed Ministry is a faith based non-profit group dedicated to introducing people into a relationship with Christ through fellowship, music, and ministry. Our initial focus is reaching the youth, Jr. High to High School age. This ministry grew from a nondenominational group who annually attended the former Ichthus Music Festival in Wilmore, Kentucky. For over 40 years God continually revealed himself through the event, changing the lives of countless youth.

Mike Kurz
Vice President

My name is Mike Kurz. I graduated High School in 1983 and then enlisted into the United States Army. I then worked to become a Plant Manager for an Automotive Supplier where I worked for eighteen years. I am now a Police Officer for the Harrison county Police Department and a lay leader at my church. The Lord has led me in many ways and currently has me not only serving at my church but working for the Mustard Seed Ministry. I am so incredibly blessed to have a wonderful and loving wife and six children between us. I am empowered by my God and am willing to serve him in any way he calls me forth.
