Our Team

New2Troy Winters is the founder of Mustard Seed Ministries. During a leadership-training course in 2005, Troy was given a divine directive that changed his life. For the first time he traveled to New Orleans to work and serve. Moved by the friendships he made during his stay, he promised to return and continue the work he began. Today, Troy leads groups of volunteers through the home repair process in the mission to change lives one home at a time.

Today as a Co-Director of the MSM team and a disability advocate, Aaron takes careful consideration of recipient families and their needs. While Aaron does a lot of work behind the scenes coordinating volunteers and managing project bookings, he comes out to every project site to see where MSM can help more. We have many stories to share with you about how Aaron will meet any challenge to make sure our recipient families are taken care of.

Michelle has served MSM since its beginning and she is committed to keeping each project a loving and safe atmosphere for both our volunteers and our home-repair receiving families.
