THIS IS A MEANINGFUL LIFE: CHARLIE’S STORY

What an incredible week as we prayed, fasted, and gathered together as a spiritual family for Prepare 2019. I continue to be blown away by God’s faithfulness as He moves in the lives of people all over our church. Last weekend, I had the opportunity to share a bit of Charlie’s Prepare story with you. This was so powerful, I wanted you to get to see the whole story: “We first came to Milestone the very last weekend of 2017. My marriage…

Do I Belong Here?

Can you remember the last time you asked yourself the simple question: Do I belong here? When we wrestle with the pain and challenges of our past, we often question our value, our abilities, and even our identity. In this place, we wonder if we measure up or fit in. But when you are surrounded by people who remind you that God sees you, He’s with you, and that He’s for you, things begin to flourish in your life. Recently,…

Be Great!

“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.” 1 Timothy 4:12 (NIV) “You don’t have to wait to be great!”  You’ve probably heard me say it in a weekend service, or have walked past the big letters on the wall in our kids ministry, but this simple statement reflects the immense value we see in intentionally investing in, and…

Well, Unfortunately I Liked It

In our culture today, seeing adult men make decisions for Christ and then choosing to be baptized is a full-on miracle. We see it over and over here at Milestone as we partner with wives praying for their husbands and inviting them to come to church. Once they get here, the best part is hearing these men say, “Well, unfortunately I liked it.” One of my favorite moments from last weekend was getting to share with you Michael’s story. His…

What Makes This Friday So Good

“Good Friday” is a catchy phrase—an easy way to remember a very important day. But let’s be honest…the name falls short in capturing the depth of emotion and eternal significance of the day it celebrates. And yet Jesus told His followers to remember His death every time they gathered. He wanted them to always keep it in front of them. He wanted this understanding to be at the forefront of their minds. But why? I don’t know about you but…

Sammy Max vs Mount Everest

As we wrapped up our series on Moving Mountains last weekend, I shared a story of a 25-year-old high school teacher in our church named Sammy Max. I received a letter from Sammy last week describing what the Lord has been speaking to her throughout the series and how it was especially meaningful to her because of her story. I wanted to take a moment today and give you a little bit more of her incredible journey… Dear Pastor Jeff…

Ask Me Anything

There ain’t no pain like kid pain. It’s bad grammar, but real truth. If you’ve walked through any challenges with your kids (and let’s be honest, we all have) you know this kind of pain. It cuts deep. Raising children is an incredible responsibility we are entrusted with…but it’s also messy. It takes time, effort, and a great deal of emotional and physical energy. It’s challenging, it’s tough, it’s painful and it’s worth it. Trust me, I know. Brandy and I…
