EPIC Student Ministries

In EPIC Student Ministries, We want to be an authentic relational community of Christ followers that encourage one another in their faith, serve others before self, and represent Jesus well in the world. EPIC student ministry is here to help students and their families navigate through all of the change that occurs during the middle school and high school years. We weren’t created to engage life on our own, and it is our goal to make sure that doesn’t happen. Here at EPIC, we are intentional, and we have middle school and high school students in mind.
