Maybe you’ve asked time and time again, and keep getting the…

Jay’s Family Vision

Water baptisms are one of our favorite celebrations here at Milestone. Nearly 70 people from all different generations and different backgrounds took this step of faith last weekend. We saw a 67-year-old woman baptized right alongside two six-year-olds, a family of four brothers and sisters who come from a Muslim heritage, and families just like Jay Odem’s who all said “yes” to Jesus. If you were with us this weekend, you saw Jay’s video. There are elements of the story…
