Down took over for retiring Stan Dueck amidst the merger of the long-established faith-based non-profit, New Life Community Kamloops, with the Alberta-based Mustard Seed.

Since the merger, changes have been implemented, including closure of the men’s recovery program and the Seymour Street thrift store.

KTW has calls in to Mustard Seed Kamloops, but they have not yet been returned.
