Leading students to live like Jesus
epic provides an opportunity for students to experience and pursue Jesus through weekend programs, off-campus experiences, and small groups. Staff and volunteer leaders are focused on creating a welcoming and safe environment for students to connect with each other and with Christ through relevant teaching, authentic worship, and fun activities that bring it all to life. Our small group element is led by volunteer leaders and allows students to connect with others, get answers to questions, and experience Christ-centered community. We want every student to feel known, valued and loved. For more information, email our epic staff.
