  • Jim & Jean Harris — Lead Pastor & Administrative Assistant

    Jim is from Miami; he and his wife Jean moved to Pensacola in 1989 after two decades of ministry in South and Central Florida. He guides Milestone in its mission to do anything and everything necessary to invite people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. On Sunday mornings he leads in practical and engaging teaching of God's Word. On most other mornings, before he starts his day, you'll probably find him at Starbucks encouraging someone over a cup of coffee. He enjoys riding his motorcycle whenever he can, and would love to go on a ride with you.


    Jean is the administrative assistant that makes everything work. She partners with Jim in the ministry and provides him with endless support, just as she has done since 1972. Together they have two sons, two incredible daughters-in-law, and six grandchildren.

  • Christian Jones — Youth Ministries

Christian and Kate have two children, Austin and Alaska.
