In 2001, Pastor Jeff Little began dreaming of starting a church with a simple desire to see people enter into a relationship with Jesus and see lives built on the foundation of the Bible. The dream was to start a church that was life-giving, spirit-filled and would emphasize reaching people and building lives.
In August of 2002, they began meeting with a team of 32 people and focused on reaching out to non-churched people in the area by building relationships through neighborhood associations, coaching sports and serving in the community.
After two and a half years of setting up and tearing down in the school, in May of 2005 they leased their first permanent facility off of Willis Lane in Keller, TX.
They quickly outgrew the Willis Lane facility, maxing it out with four weekend services, parking lot challenges and a growing need for classroom space for their children and youth. God provided an incredible solution with their current facility in the heart of Keller!
They purchased their first facility at 801 Keller Parkway and soon after began a expansive remodel to represent our desire to serve and care for our community. Part of this remodel included the KidzBlast Play Zone, a two-story slide and tube jungle gym! They also updated the children's rooms for better security, and outfitted the 400-seat student auditorium for Elevate, their rapidly growing student ministry. In 2008, they launched their capital stewardship campaign with Sauls Consulting Services entitled, “Journey.” The pledge was nearly $4 million and within the first year nearly $1.5 million had come in.
The grand opening at 801 Keller Parkway was April 11, 2009, Easter Weekend. As they created space, MC watched God add over 600 people in the first 6 months; in addition, they saw over 100 people commit their lives to Christ since moving into the new building.
As Milestone Church is in its 7th year, more than 1500 people currently attend their three weekend services.
