We Are For Flagler
Since the beginning of Epic, we have been defined by who we are for—we are a church for people who don’t do church. Whether people believe in what we do or not—no matter their religious background, political opinion, or lifestyle choices—we want Epic to be a safe place for people to come and explore the teachings of Jesus and grow a real relationship with Him. Over the last decade, we’ve led hundreds of people to make a decision to follow Jesus and are seeing many of them connect with God through our church family.
Since Epic started in 2009, we have also been for our community. We asked ourselves if Epic’s doors were ever to close, “Would our community miss us?” The answer to that question is beginning to be “yes” as we’ve served families, children, students, the elderly, addicts, victims of domestic violence, our first responders, our educators, and others in our county. We’ve served our community through hundreds of projects with strong local partnerships.
Now a new opportunity is before us in this next decade in Epic’s story. We are at a point where the needs of those who attend and those who reach out to us from the community outweigh the capacity of our current resources, staff, and rented facilities.
We believe God is leading us to take even greater steps to impact our community for Christ. We believe it’s time to launch the next chapter of being for Flagler. We plan to do this through three key initiatives:
For Our Community
Over the last few years, Flagler County is part of a cluster of counties with the highest suicide rates in Florida. Our county lacks adequate counseling resources to address rising mental health issues for children, students, and adults. We want to provide care, counseling, and hope for hurting people through our Care Network and Counseling Center.
For Our Families
As a growing church of 700, more and more families are coming! They come because their children keep wanting to come back. With more children and students coming, we need a full-time Student Director, more children’s ministry staff, and key volunteers to serve our next generation.
For The Future
We want to make a statement through putting down roots in our community that we are here for Flagler. We plan to construct an engaging facility that will make a regional impact on our county and beyond, so we’ve selected land easily accessible from I-95. The land is on Seminole Woods Boulevard just off of SR 100 and three lots south of the RaceTrac gas station. This 16-acre piece of land is easily accessible from Bunnell, Palm Coast, and Flagler Beach.
So this is the opportunity before us!
We have two goals! First, we are asking for 100% engagement of all who call Epic their home to pray, engage, and give in new ways during this season. We ask that you would consider what it means for you to be for Flagler in how you use your time, your energy, and your financial resources.
Second, we want to raise $2.5 million from March 2020 to March 2022. We want to increase Epic’s operational budget to $1.5 million which will enable us to start the Counseling Center, Care Network, and hire more staff for our student and children’s areas. Then we want to raise an additional $1 million to purchase the land and to finish Phase 1 of the land.
