Who We Are

Epic is a place for people from all backgrounds, regardless of where they are on their spiritual journey. If you're new to Epic or are considering joining us for a service, we hope you'll find a place where you are warmly welcomed and feel at home, even if you've never been to church before.

Epic is committed to:
1. Epic exists to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus.
2. Helping those that are far from God discover that they don't have to be.
3. Teaching and demonstrating that a life of significance is found in giving it away to God and others. So whether you’re a seasoned follower of Jesus or you're just "kicking the spiritual tires," we want you to know that Epic is a place for you.

Epic is a place...
To be yourself.
To ask tough questions and get honest answers.
To meet new friends and build authentic relationships.
To grow spiritually and relationally.
To make a difference in your community and world by serving others.

Our Services

What are services like?
Epic exists to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus. We are committed to: Helping those that are far from God discover that they don’t have to be. Teaching and demonstrating that a life of significance is found in giving it away to God and others. Provide transformational teaching, worship, and community to help believers and seekers become fully devoted followers of Christ. At Epic our core values are part of the DNA of our Church. They are both descriptive and prescriptive of who we are and who we hope to be. A life of significance is found in giving it away. Do good whenever the opportunity presents itself. Irrelevance is irreverence. The message is sacred. The medium is not. Playing it safe is risky. Pray like it depends on God and work like it depends on you. Everyone is invaluable and irreplaceable. Everything is an experiment. You cannot out give God. Go the extra mile. It's never too late to be who you might have been.

What is the community like?
Over 50% of weekly attenders are part of life groups where genuine community happens. People meet weekly in homes around the city to discuss topics and to get to know each other. These groups are done on a semester basis and last about 10-12 weeks. Community is diverse, predominately young, and includes many people who are exploring faith or are new to church.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Epic's doors are open to everyone. We want to be a place where people can discover a relationship with God and take time they need to do so.

Kent Jacobs

Kent was born in North Carolina and spent portions of his life there and in Germany, Guam, and Oklahoma before coming to Philadelphia. Since moving to Philly in 2001, Kent has become a HUGE Eagles fan (and is always available to accept tickets). They are a large part of why football is his favorite season and most depressing…come on, Super Bowl! Kent has been married to his beautiful wife, Tiffany, since 2002 and along with starting a church, they’ve also been busy raising two super-cute kids, Kayleigh and Koen (they are award-winning kind of cute). Kent is the lead pastor at Epic Church. He spent his early years of ministry in Oklahoma and 7 years at a church in the suburbs of Philly before starting Epic in October 2008. With Epic, Kent is excited to help people discover that the most significant thing they can do with their one and only life is give it away...to God, and to others.
