Hi, I am Camille Jones the designer and co-founder with my husband, Raymond Jones, of Black Mustard Seed (BMS). Growing up as a female basketball player in the Midwest (the hood) there is a distinct style that is forever embed in my wardrobe. Just about all my favorite outfits include a dope hat and pair of J's (retro ones usually). Even as an engineer at tech firm I made it my mission to incorporate this style into everyday work wear. It took time but they grew to question when I didn't have my gear on. More than my style I desired to incorporate and share faith in a normal and unforced way. I would pray for God to put me in situations I could witness. And man, He sure did. You'd be surprised what a smile or a head nod and dope T-shirt can do. While I was comfortable at my job, I knew God wanted more...something else from me. I wanted to reach more people, equip others and myself with ways to be a better witness. After a literal dream about Christian clothing and months of prayer and fasting - I quit my job during a pandemic and decided to walk in faith. Merging God's Word, my street style, and splash of nerd I formed BMS Christian Apparel Brand. Join us on this journey as we create Holy Spirit filled apparel with a dope vibe.
31 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field: 32 Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof. - Matthew 13: 31 - 32
Some scholars believe the Black Mustard is the plant Jesus was talking about. When this tiny black mustard seed is planted it can grow up to 10 to 15 feet in some cases. Black Mustard grows everywhere. Completely invasive. It inner twines tightly creating these dense layers called thickets… becoming home to many animals. It literally becomes its own ecosystem. Perhaps some would say kingdom. In the some scriptures thickets are used to describe kingdoms. Like the black mustard seed, the power and potential of Faith is great! Great enough to move mountains went planted! Our Faith is the seed… The kingdom of God spreads through us…creating a thick covering as we spread the word of God, people give their lives to Christ, increase in faith, and the Kingdom of God expands!
20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
