How We Came To Be

Epic Church began in 2007 with a conversation over a bowl of pasta in a little Italian place in the city. It was a scary conversation–Kent Jacobs, his wife Tiffany, and their friend Joanne Domagala talked about what it might be like to start a church. If you don’t know much about starting a church, trust us: it’s not easy. But they talked, and they dreamed about this church. Not just any church, either–they wanted to create and be part of a church where people who are far from God could find out they don’t have to be, could find hope and something worth giving their lives to, a church where normal people like them felt at home.

In 2008, we had our first service at a movie theater in Manayunk. Since then, we’ve grown to four locations across the city of Philadelphia, and we’ve seen God work in amazing ways through our church, its people, and the communities around us. It’s been a heart-pounding adventure since the very first day. We’ve found that through all of the ups and downs, the joys and challenges, it’s been so worth it.

We love that every day, we get a chance to follow that whisper from God, the one that says, “Just trust me, and keep walking in the direction I’ve told you to go.”

From a scary conversation over Italian food to a vision for every person in the city of Philadelphia, God has taken us on an incredible journey. We’d love for you to join us.
