The Mustard Seed

Leadership Team

Rev. Stephen Bell

Executive Director/Senior Pastor

The Rev. Stephen P. Bell comes to us by way of the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver where he previously worked for 17 years in Canada’s poorest postal code. A graduate of both Tyndale Bible College and St. Andrews’ Hall Seminary, Stephen has always been deeply involved in church planting, church revitalization, transitional housing, addictions counseling, and parole management. While not at work, he spends time with his wife Amy.

Treska Watson

Director of Operations

Treska was born and raised in Victoria. After school she pursued a career in hospitality on the West Coast in Tofino followed by 12 years with Canada Post in leadership on the North Island and Sunshine Coast. It was always her goal to return to Victoria and give back to the city she loves. In 2019 she was able to make that switch from corporate to non-profit and she hasn’t looked back since. Bringing her love of people, strong communication skills and a passion to serve our community, Treska has found her place at the Seed. When not at work she can be found exploring this beautiful island we call home, travelling and spending time with family and friends.

Clint Rose

Director of Administration

Clint Rose is proud to have worked as part of the Mustard Seed team since 2016. Having helped run a small family business, he brought to the Seed a passion for organizational efficiency and productivity, which he is able to translate into the faithful stewardship of the many resources the Mustard Seed is entrusted with, in service to those who need them most.

Colleen Sparks

Director of Development

Colleen is thrilled to be the newest member of ‘the Seed’. Coming back to the not-for-profit world after a career focused on community relations, communication and project leadership, including time working on climate action, disaster recovery, sustainable development and process improvement. Colleen’s three adult children inspire her to live her values and work to make a difference. Her husband Piers makes her laugh. When not working Colleen can be found outside… cycling with friends, hiking with family or gardening.
