Pastor Jeff Little dreamed of planting a church with one simple goal: help people begin a relationship with Jesus and see their lives built on the foundation of the Bible. The vision was to develop a church that was life-giving, spirit-filled, and would embody the mission of reaching people and building lives.
With the help of a committed group of families, that vision became a reality as a team of 32 people gathered in the ballroom of a Holiday Inn in August of 2002. As the initial group grew, we began meeting at Indian Springs Middle School in Keller and formally launched Milestone Church in October of 2002. The life-transforming message of the Gospel, passionate worship, and a commitment to pursuing authentic relationships brought continuous growth and decisions for Christ in our first two years as a church.
In Joshua 24, the Bible tells the story of God’s people coming to a defining moment. Joshua gathered the people to remind them of God’s faithfulness and for them to remain faithful. He set out a large stone to be a witness for all to see for generations to come. Then Joshua dismissed the people, each to their own inheritance. This story is where the name “Milestone Church” comes from. It has been the vision of Milestone to keep reaching people and building lives so that not just a select few, but everyone can discover their God-given inheritance.
The Early Days
After two and a half years of being a portable church in a school cafeteria, we leased our first permanent facility off of Willis Lane in Keller. From parking to classroom space, we quickly outgrew this building and God provided a solution in a converted storefront with a location in the heart of Keller!
The Shopping Center & TWO CAMPUSES
The purchase of our facility on Keller Parkway invited massive growth as we made more space to care for our community. From 2009-2013, Milestone became home to over 3,000 people attending weekend services. Then, in June of 2013, another exciting step was ahead for our church family. Our first satellite campus launched in McKinney, TX, and Milestone became one church in two locations. From 2013 to 2016, we continued to grow to over 4,000 people and we knew it was time for another transition.
Our KELLER Campus
In April of 2017, we opened the doors to our brand new campus at 201 Mount Gilead. Since that time, we've seen God use Milestone to reach more people and build more lives as we've grown to over 5,000 in weekend attendance.
Through every season of change and expansion, the vision of Milestone has stayed intact. We are more enthusiastic about reaching people than ever before, and there's a place for you and your family!
We see God impacting the regions of Keller and McKinney through Milestone Church every day and we want you to be a part! We invite you to join us for one of our weekend services or watch live online on Sundays.
