Milestone Ministry marks those events along life’s journey that say, “This is something important and God is here.” Marking a milestone is a Biblically-based spiritual practice in both home and congregation, that helps all generations recognize God’s presence. Milestone Ministry is a new approach to Christian education and discipleship which partners with and equips families to support the faith development of children, youth and adults.
Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Deuteronomy 6:5-7
Milestone Ministry inseparably links church and home to transform the generations into mature disciples of Christ.
A Milestone is a stepping stone towards deep and mature faith in which:
1) The family is resourced by the church with information, guidance, and training for the family as the child move towards and arrives at a milestone
2) The family works together to prepare the student for arriving at a milestone.
3) The student’s sense of themselves as a follower of Christ is shaped by their journey towards and arrival at each milestone. They are transformed at each milestone as they grow deeper in their faith.
4) The family and the church does something to celebrate and commemorate the arrival at a milestone.
