Yes, There’s a Place For You

It was in the cafetorium of a middle school in the Spring of 2003, amidst the familiar smell of cafeteria food and the hum of vending machines, that Jim and Jeanne Rogers first got a taste of spiritual family. Jim and Jeanne both had nearly 30 years of experience in a wide range of ministry environments. But in 2003, they found themselves in a season of searching. They not only wanted to find a church that was functioning according to…

Throwback Thursday: Eddie & Ginger Guerra

We love celebrating stories of life-change at Milestone Church. There are powerful stories of transformation, salvation, and restoration happening every day in our midst. God’s been in the business of redemption and rescue from the beginning. From 32 people gathered in a hotel 15 years ago, to where we are now, and every step in between, stories have emerged. Marriages have been restored, hearts have been transformed, volunteers have served, and lives have been changed. We recognize there is value…

Against All Odds

Working the night shift can be grueling. At the end of hour 12, you’ll find most people with this schedule ready to fall into bed. Not Micah Hayman.

Two years ago Micah was matched with “J”, a student at Ridgeview Elementary, through the Milestone Mentoring program. Both of his parents are in prison,…

How Your Generosity Changed Lives

One of the things we love most about the holidays at Milestone is Christmas Compassion. Our heart is to reach and serve our local community and be the hands and feet of Jesus. Through Joy, our Toy Drive, Adopt-a-Family, Christmas Compassion event, and the Evergreen Christmas party, the people of Milestone gave like never before. Over $800,000 in gifts were given to single moms and widows, $30,000 in toys and other gifts provided for families in need, and over 500…

Are You Adopted?

Have you ever felt a little out of place? Maybe you you received an invitation to an event, but didn’t quite feel like you were wanted there? It’s that familiar feeling in the pit of your stomach that seems to say “you don’t belong here”. So why does it bother us so much? Deep down, we all want to feel like we belong. We want a place at the table. To be known fully and still loved fully. To feel…

When Nothing Else Worked

We’re so grateful for the genuine stories of life transformation happening all around us.
