Missions: It’s Not What You Think

The mission is worth it. People matter to God. Generosity transforms. These are things we say a lot at Milestone, but it’s during events like Missions Weekend that we see how they really shape the culture of our church. It’s amazing to see the big picture of what so many people are doing to impact our community and our world. We put together this video to share what has happened in the last year.
