Mustard Tree Missions (MTM) is a non-profit, non-denominational ministry directed by Rick Burton of Meridian, MS. Mustard Tree Mission’s main focus is on foreign missions, taking adults and young people from many different churches and denominations on short-term mission trips. Our main function is to come along side the local churches and ministries to assist them in their ministries.
Traveling mostly to various places in Venezuela, we have held outdoor crusades, ministered in churches, offered free medical & dental clinics, and helped establish churches. We have also worked with orphanages, rehab centers and prisons.
Rick is ordained by Liberty Fellowship. MTM has a Board of Advisors composed of pastors, missionaries and lay leaders.
Rubén Turtulici, also ordained by Liberty Fellowship, is the MTM Director in Venezuela and President of Fundamost (Fundación Árbol de Mostaza), the official branch of MTM in Venezuela.
